???? -- ** Updated
It's my last day of vacation and I'm not very happy. I woke up this morning with the worst stomachache and I spent a very LONG time in the bathroom (thank God we're home and not at my father-in-law's!) -- don't worry I'm not going to go into detail. Since I have ulcerative colitis I'm used to having stomach issues, but I've been in remission for almost four years and I've had no symptoms at all since my doctor found the proper meds.
I dragged myself to the living room where Mr. JB was watching his normal pre-mass television shows and having his tea and we went through all the things that I ate the day before. There was nothing strange or colitis-aggravating on the list. The strangest thing that I ate yesterday was some N.ibs while we watched Mama Mia (which is really good!). I ended up missing mass because my tummy was still gurgling away and I really didn't want to have to run to the bathroom in the middle of the consecration! I was pretty upset, but as Mr. JB reminded me, we had gone to daily mass while we were at my FIL's and that every time we were with my BIL we had mass.
So I'm on day 7 of my cycle and I take my last dose of C.lomid tonight. I can't help but think that perhaps it's the C.lomid that's making me sick to my stomach? Then again, I've taken it since day 3 and I've only had a bad stomach today. Perhaps my stomach is just revolting from all of the excesses of the Christmas holidays. Also the last time I was on C.lomid over a year ago (and I was prescribed 50mg, not just 25mg like this time) I had no symptoms.
Am I crazy? Or should I just stop complaining and drink my ginger tea and eat crackers?
So I decided about half and hour ago that I needed to eat something with protein -- crackers, soup, and gingerale were just not doing it for me. Mr. JB made me a plate of the leftover chicken and potatoes that we got from the grocery store last night and I had the realization that my stomach woes are not due to C.lomid or colitis.
The stupid potatoes were spicy.
I'm so dumb.
Silly, silly JellyBelly!
