I feel better. I’m not 100% yet but I am no longer writhing in pain when I try to eat. I managed to do my dishes today which were crowding themselves off my kitchen counter. Honestly, in the ten years since I moved out from my parents’ house, I have never felt the lack of a dishwasher until these past few days. I didn’t have enough strength to stand long enough to have a shower, let alone clean, so the pile kept getting larger and larger. But today, I cleared it all and wiped down the counter and that is probably having a good mental effect on my health. I’m even doing a few loads of laundry!
My mum has been fantastic. She’s come over a bunch of times, bringing me supplies so that I wouldn’t have to venture out to the grocery store. I’ve been able to stay in bed or on the couch and just recuperate.
I think one more day of doing nothing will have me back on my feet, just in time for Monday and my appointment with the allergist.
