Yeah, I'm sick right now.

On Sunday, we were up in Minnesota visiting my family for Christmas. It was nice to get back, but unfortunately, it seems to have come at a price. T and I were driving to the Mall of America when I started feeling a pain in my stomach. Not wanting to ruin our mall trip, I pushed it into the back of my mind. Yeah, that lasted about 10 minutes.

We went to the crepe stand to get T a crepe. She bought me one with strawberries and bananas, but I was only able to eat the actual fruit. She also bought me a Sprite. We started walking around, but about 20 minutes later, I had to hit the bathroom for the first time to void my body.

I kept struggling through the mall, trying to stay upbeat and pleasant, but I kept having to visit the bathrooms to cope with what were major stomach issues. No food sounded good to me. The only thing I wanted to do was to drink Sprite.

We went home where we had a frank discussion with my parents. I won't go into details, but we aired a lot of stuff out. All the while, I was still feeling sick.

We ended up leaving back for Colorado on Monday and I was still feeling awful. When we got back to the house, I tried some chicken soup but that came up about 10 minutes later. I was weak and tired, so I went to bed. At like 7:00 at night...

My big dilema is...I want to work out. Really bad. But I understand that it's about the worst thing to do when you are sick. But I'm getting really antsy...and I hate getting sidetracked...

  1. Sorry you don't feel well, Brandon! Since it's Wednesday evening, you should have a better idea of what's going on now and know how to deal with it. Hope it's going away!
