Sick

My weekend hasn't gone as planned. Yesterday I was taken out for lunch by my lovely ex-boss and then I went to the pub with a group of ex-colleagues. I had a really good day and was home by 10.15, merry but not drunk. Then at about 2am, I was quite violently sick. I really don't think it was the alcohol as the contents were quite recognisable as my lunch which I had finished eating 12 hours earlier but was undigested. It wasn't pleasant and I got quite scared about it as I'm on my own. So I didn't go to sleep. I phoned my mum when it reached a reasonable hour and she agreed that it sounded like something to do with the food. I'm feeling a bit better now but it made me feel very isolated and made me wish I was nearer my family as there really isn't anyone here I could contact. My mum has called back again this evening to check on me and I'm feeling calmer, but this was not how I thought I would be spending my day. I still haven't been to sleep either so I've now been up for about 36 hours.

oh no sounds horrible - being alone when you are sick isn't the best - hope you are feeling better today and manage to catch up on your sleep

Oh bless, sickness bugs are just vile aren't they? Hope you're remembering to drink lots of liquids.

Hopefully you're over the worst of it and are beginning to feel human again.

Thank you everyone. I'm feeling much better - I've had some sleep and my appetite has returned.
