Uh, I’m feeling absolutely awful today. Actually I’ve been feeling bad for a few days and I don’t know which day was worse.
My Crohn’s is acting up again.
I guess spending the last few months fighting colds, pneumonia, and a flu like bug irritated my system and got a Crohn’s flare going. The sad thing is that even though I’ve been so sick this year I started to notice in February or so that my abdomen was starting to feel a bit better. I began to wonder if I might be able to go back to work soon.
Yesterday my stomach/abdomen was hurting so bad that I couldn’t do anything. I wasn’t reading my emails or even playing with a puzzle game on my computer let alone getting any work on my sites done. I just lay on the couch watching TV.
My abdomen felt like I had someone making a fist and pushing it through my intestines and stomach. I don’t think I could have felt worse if I drank acne face wash or something similar. Uhh.
The pain wasn’t as bad today as it was yesterday, but instead of hurting I just feel really off. I feel dizzy, and weak. I actually almost fainted a while after I got up this morning. I also have had several very high fevers over the last few days.
Hopefully this Crohn’s flare doesn’t last too long. What I mean is this “increased” flare … because I’ve actually been in a bad Crohn’s flare that hasn’t let up for about six years. Hopefully it gets down to a tolerable level soon.
In the meantime if I’m silent for a few days it’s because I’m probably not feeling very well and I’m resting, hoping to feel better. Plus it’s not easy to blog when you’re in pain … it’s hard to think.
