I haven’t been feeling well today at all. My Crohn’s is acting up and my stomach has been cramping all day.
Last night I fell asleep on the couch and slept pretty much straight through ’till 6 a.m.. Chris happened to get up in the middle of the night because he couldn’t sleep. I can remember him having a cup of warm milk at about 3 a.m. but as far as I know I just looked at him sleepily and went back to snooze land.
I tried to go back to sleep but I couldn’t. I was in too much pain. However around 2 pm a huge wave of tiredness hit me. Midnight was snoozing on the living room floor so I got her to go into her crate and then I lay down on the couch for a short nap. You know what time I woke up? At almost 7 p.m.!
This type of thing has been happening quite a bit lately. I guess I’ll have to go back to the specialists office and see if he can adjust my medications. I just have to start feeling better.
Laying around so much has actually made me gain a bit of weight. I can’t eat a lot with the Crohn’s, but when you feel so ill that you aren’t all that active you can still gain weight. Luckily it’s not too much. I did once consider trying diet pills, but that’s not the way to go for me. I just want to try to get more active. That’s one of the main reasons we got the puppy in the first place.
I hope that I start to feel better soon. Today is just intolerable. I might just go back to sleep and hope that I wake up feeling better.
