Who? Who? Who?

I need this on a t-shirt today.  Between the tests this morning making me sick (upper GI and a ton of blood work) and my fibro fog kicking in (who are you talking about? what? who?) - my day may go easier if I just pretend to be an owl.  I wouldn't mind being propped up somewhere safe, sleeping the day away...

I've had a history of not keeping meals down for a long time now, at least a few years... At the time, I was told it was a combination of my fibro and stress.  Now the doctors are not so sure anymore.  That's why I needed the upper GI done - but I got so sick during it that they had to cancel it!  I hate being sick like that in public but it was oddly satisfying... The x-ray tech was giving me one of those looks - you know the ones we get when someone thinking "yeah right you aren’t sick you are just lazy".  Except her face said "yeah right, a fat girl that can't keep food down. Funny."  So in that sense, even though it was embarrassing, I'm kind of glad that I proved her look wrong.  Then again, the hang-over feeling afterwards - I'm not so sure it was worth it.  (Secretly I will say that it was but I don't want to appear catty.) 

So all of that mess for nothing.  Then the doctor also ordered a ton of blood work (8 vials of blood!) and I don't do well once they take 4.  So I was sick again. 

<sarcasm> So far, this Monday morning is off to a "great" start.  </sarcasm>

Maybe I'll just look for a perch in a tree somewhere out back... take a nap :)
