I have really not been feeling like eating the past few days – I have been forcing myself to eat 1 meal a day- which not eating is not good, but I really don’t have the urge to eat- at all. I think I had the stomach flu last Sunday and I am still not back to normal. I get a small urge to eat, but then when I get to food, I feel nauseous and think I am going to throw up so I don’t feel like eating any longer. Weird, I know, but that is the way it is right now. I have not been journaling since I have not been eating anywhere close to my daily points for the week – most of my 1 daily meals consist of a fruit a veggie and a small protein like chicken or turkey. And at the meal I am eating about 1/3rd of what I normally would eat. Strange.
If I am not “back to my eating self” by Tuesday, I will be going to see a doctor.
BTW- I am not pregnant – there is absolutely no way that could happen – believe me. Immaculate conception, maybe.
Mom update (month anniversary of her becoming sick is Thursday): my mom saw YET ANOTHER doctor Friday who told her she needs an MRI and a CAT scan, bit that she would need to see an ENT to have it authorized to be done. This doctor (an MD this time not a DDS or oral surgeon) told my mom that the best diagnosis now is that my mom has lock jaw and that she will need to be on muscle relaxants and have PT to help “unfreeze” the jaw muscle that is stopping her from opening her mouth. I talked to a friend of mine that is an ENT here in my city, and he thought, though it should have been done weeks ago, the ENT is the best doctor she could see right now. Thanks again for all the well wishes!!
