  • Mood:

I was ill earlier.

So Friday night I went home with an upset stomach. No idea why it was upset. Luckily it doesn't happen too often anymore, but still it's familiar. Knowing that, if I failed to eat (as is often recommended with upset stomach), my body would punish me later for this by adding the symptoms of hunger (unpleasant) atop the upset tummy, I went ahead and ate something.

Half an hour or so later, lots of tummy pain. Not "go to the ER" levels, just "I need a lie down" level. I napped for a few hours. When I woke up, the "ass piss" diarrhea began; it was as though I was getting lots of enemas against my will. It was impossible to sleep, because I had to concentrate on keeping myself from soiling everything I own; the slightest fart would... well... I don't think I need to spell it out for you. It lasted hours. I kept taking as much water as I could, then Powerade, to keep hydrated.

Didn't have any Immodium with me; a friend brought me some, and eventually the diarrhea went down to "soft serve ice cream left in the sun a few minutes" thickness. This morning, my BM was fairly normal consistency, and I no longer had to fight to hold it in. Only thing this morning was that it was BLACK. But that was the result of the Pepto I'd been taking to get rid of the persistent upset tummy.

So yeah, fairly unpleasant night and day, that. I must remember to save up for the economy size package of Immodium, if ever that happens again.
