This Sucks

Just the thought of going in to work makes me want to cry.

This morning, I am vomiting up water, ginger ale, crackers... I don't want to put anything into my mouth for fear it'll just come back up, but having an empty stomach doesn't help either.

I've had the past two days off, and even while chilling on the couch all day, the morning sickness was miserable. It's going to be a hundred times worse when I'm around all the noise and smells of Goodwill. Plus, I'm supposed to be eating crackers or dry snacks almost constantly (when am I supposed to do that at work?), drinking ginger tea (again?), sitting and relaxing every now and then (yeah right. they'd freak out at me.)...

We need the money for rent and plane tickets and the like, but good grief, I just want to quit and spent the day with my toilet. (Well...that's not what I want, ideally, but it seems like the best option right now.)

I'm trying everything, every tip I've been given: peppermints, lemon drops, ginger ale, ginger tea, crackers, naps... Nothing is helping so far. I don't know what to do.

And I have to work from 12:30pm to 9pm tonight.



  1. Oh dear. . .
    All I can say is that I hope you feel better enough to manage.
    And I know you're not really religious, but I am, so whether you like it or not I'm sending up a prayer for you anyway.
    I hope your day gets better. Good luck mate. I'm thinking about you.

  2. Holy crap. Baby Williams is not being easy on you, is it? I'm so sorry. Hopefully it will get easier soon. Not sending prayers your way, but happy and encouraging thoughts, definitely.
