Purging Verge

I am glad to know I am not the only one who is not in love with work. Sissy thinks I am a freak because I don't love work. I seem to meet all the people who love it, or at least who are unwilling to talk about not loving it.

I am on the verge of barfing. I have been slightly nauseated for almost 26 hours now. Last night when I got home, I couldn't eat. I was born at 6:13 pm and I haven't missed dinner in over 40 years. Really, I'm the kind of girl that eats solid food through strep throat and after oral surgery. The nausea is my only symptom. (Although this morning the dude said I felt hot, which is about as accurate as our thermometer.) I finally ate at 2:00 but I just had some crackers. I think this is the longest I've gone without eating. Even when I fast for my colonoscopies, I still eat jello and popsicles constantly (jelly and ice lollies for my British friends). I don't feel good but I really don't feel bad enough to stay home; I'd just end up cleaning the kitchen and doing some laundry.

Here's something I finished yesterday:

I hope you'll be feeling well very soon. Lots of icky bugs making the rounds here this winter. :(

I'm sorry to hear you're still ill. Hope you feel better soon.

I need to get back to archival work again (I'm now doing policy).

Hope you're feeling better soon. Nausea is the worst! Especially when it is unknown cause nausea. Cute February!

I think there's a stomach illness going around, though it seems to only be 24 hours from what I'm seeing. It's working the rounds of one of my friend's family right now. Another one I hope that I don't get. I hope you are feeling better soon!
