It’s been a long, stressful, and very emotional week which has contributed to this loss.
I am almost scared to put this out here, but here it goes.
For the first several days I ate next to nothing. Maybe some fruit here or there and a protein bar if I was in the mood. This kind of stress eliminates all sense of hunger. I was picking little bites off food as if I were a bird.
Saturday night I ate decently because I had a family dinner to go too, but that’s really the last full and solid meal I’ve had in about a week.
I bought Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and some Pepperidge farm cookies on Monday. So far only 2 cookies have been eaten and the ice cream remains sealed up in the freezer.
I am trying to make a conscious effort to eat, and to eat something with substance when I do. For the time being, the thought of food is making me feel sick. Well, to be fair, a lot of things are making me feel sick. I am in a situation I thought I’d never have to face again with an up hill climb ahead of me. I’m doing the best that I can.
In case you feel out of the loop, you can catch up with yesterday’s post. A brief look at just one tough day out of the last 7+.
Also, I have a follow-up appointment today with Dr. Z, so hopefully I can start getting the answers I’ve been waiting for.
Until next time…
