Goodbye, Virginia. Hello, Georgia.
It's kind of a big change, but I'm living with relatives... I miss my friends (specially my best friend), but I get to see family that I haven't seen in a long time. There are good and bad things about the move. I need to suck up my depression and embrace the good. : - )
Unfortunately, I'm also sick. Before the move, I caught a rather nasty head cold that stayed with me for a long time. That plus my asthma and recent bronchitis problems only made things worse for me. Even now I'm still coughing things up. It sucks big time.
On top of that, I seem to have caught a virus or an infection or something. Thursday, I suffered horrible lower abdominal pain that didn't go away until mid afternoon. Sadly, I must have pulled the muscles on my side while vomiting as I suffered a lot of pain from the muscle yesterday. At first, my mother and I weren't sure if the pain was from the abdominal pain, but after I took some Tylenol and started to feel better we started looking in a different direction.
(BTW, it's likely I suffered - or am suffering - a bladder infection, which is what could have caused my abdominal pain.)
We looked up information on pain caused by kidney and spleen infections, but nothing matched. When I press down on the painful area I am relieved of the pain. The Tylenol seemed to help, too. We broke out the heating pad to see if that would offer any relief, and it did! Now, I have a dull ache unless I accidentally pull the muscles in the area. Now, we are pretty sure that I strained the muscle while vomiting.
Mom suggested I wait another day or two before going to the hospital as I am starting to feel better. At the moment, my primary problem is eating as I haven't really eaten much of anything in the past two days. I woke up from a short nap yesterday to hear my mother eating an apple, and I wanted to devour that apple so bad. LOL. The lack of pain made me decide not to move, though. o:
Today, I have eaten half an apple and several saltines. I've had a little bit of sprite, water and cranapple juice. I think I'll try some chicken noodle soup (even though I hate it so much) and drink some ginger ale. Hopefully, I'll start feeling a lot better.
