Migraine turned into the Flu

Yesterday I said I was getting that bad migraine...well I stayed at work as long as I could, and then right before I left I went into the bathroom and "threw up".  Except I hadn't eaten anything(drank some juice in the morning).  So I dry heaved.  I drove home and passed out.  J wanted me to come over but I couldn't move.  It hurt to open my eyes.  J surprised me an hour later and held me for a few hours.  I woke up feeling some what better.  As soon as I stood up though the head ache came back, he nausea also returned.  I told him I'd try to eat and then come over to his house.  I got some grapes, washed them, and then crawled back to bed.  I dry heaved before I could even eat.  A few minutes later I ate the grapes and tried to settle down.  I needed pain killer for my head, and J was still at the store across the street so he bought me some and came over.  I was on the bathroom floor when he came back. I threw up the grapes.  Told him I didn't want him to see me like this, but boys are caring and I loved that he was willing to try and take care of me.  

After I threw up the grapes(and continued to dry heave bleh) I swallowed some water.  Fell asleep for a few minutes but then dry heaved again.  I couldn't even keep water down. I was like "What the fuck body.  Do you want me to die?"  I wanted to just eat so I could at least throw something up, instead of dry heaving.  Anyway.  I finally woke up around 8:30 and was able to eat a bran muffin.  I swallowed some advil and water.  I still felt a little head ache, some naseua, but the worst was over.  I don't know how many of you believe in God.  But I was just praying non stop for the pain to ease up.  I feel 70 percent better today.  I'm just happy to not feel like I was feeling yesterday.

Yesterdays intake was therefore 340 cals

Today I've had  Saltine cracker : 120 cal
                            soy mocha         : 180 cal

I'm not going to push my body too much.  I will do my friends hair and then go home and clean.  Just take it easy.  I need to try and get my body healthy.  I hope everyone is doing well :)  This post was not so uplifting..but I'm doing better now. I'm so proud of everyone and their accomplishments.  Stay strong and don't give up!  You are all so wonderful.  Thanks for your support!  I got a new follower!  I'm so excited.  I hope to get more.

Nothing is worse than throwing up. Yuck! I can remember one time (i was only 11 or 12) praying to God and asking him to just let me die instead of being so sick. I was throwing up stomach acid at the time because my body got sick of dry heaves. It was the most horrid experience ever. I hope you feel totally better soon!
