My stupid tummy has decided that the only thing it wants is coffee.
And peanuts, which I'm allergic to.
And egg nog.
But everything else I put into my tummy just hurts, and makes me nauseous. Including ensure.
I've eaten less since Thursday last week than I would usually eat in a day. Which is already less than what "normal" people eat in a day. The coffee seems to be keeping me alive-ish for now, and I have been force-feeding myself every day, because apparently the people in my life care about me enough to want me to eat (even when it causes excruciating pain and nausea).
I tried to go to the doctor after work yesterday, and they recently changed their hours, only accepting walk-in patients until 5pm instead of 9pm. Which means, that by the time I get off work at 4:30, they've filled the spots, and are no longer accepting any more walk-ins. Let alone 5 minutes later when I arrive at the doctor's office.
Being impatient as I am, I proceeded to go to the next nearest walk-in clinic, which also just changed their hours to 5pm, and were already fully booked for the rest of the day.
I'll be taking some time this morning to go to the doctor.
I am not feeling any kind of hope that the doctor will actually DO SOMETHING. I'm pretty sure I'll just get the whole "there's nothing wrong with you, quit whining" that I've become accustomed to.
Ooooh... I just went to the doctor's office, which has posted walk-in hours from 9:30 to 5:00. There's no doctor in the office. I signed in at 10:30. They said the doctor would be in in about 45 minutes. 5 minutes later they tell me the doctor won't be in until 1:15, as he's locked himself out of his house.
But, I do have an appointment now for 1:30.
