Well that was a nice surprise! In yesterdays post I spoke about the beginnings of a stomach ache, which used to be a very regular occurrence. Previously they lasted for several hours before showing signs of easing, often getting worse before getting better. Working my timings out: the other nights one started at around midnight, so I was expecting it to carry on until late morning, lunch time. Easily. However I was wrong in my predictions; not only was this the first stomach ache in a bloomin long time, it was the shortest. I posted that last article at around 1:15 am. By 2 am the stomach was easing up, and I was actually able to get back to sleep. I was (pleasantly) surprised. Very surprised.
Just to clarify, my definition of a “stomach ache” is pretty different to a lot of peoples stomach aches. When I am referring to these stomach aches, I am talking about a beast that has me barely able to walk, that has me leaning against whatever is around, clawing at my stomach, if not in a ball on the floor. When my friends see this for the first time (doesn’t happen often; I tend to hide when I feel this coming on), they get quite worried. I can’t even talk sometimes as the pain is that intense. Fortunately however, this time was much shorter.
Thanks for reading.
