Still swollen, still sick


So, my left hand is still swollen and incredibly sore. I don’t know if this is normal or concerning.

My arms are still very bruised also, but that’s pretty normal for me.

As I mentioned last night, I took WAYYYY too many laxatives and was up most of the night with severe pain and uncontrollable vomiting.

I stayed in bed until after noon, got up for a bit, ate a couple crackers, took a couple more laxative pills, and went back to bed.

I stayed in bed for the next 5-ish hours watching anime on Netflix on my tablet and wishing I could sleep.

This evening, I got up, binged and purged, and then collapsed on the sofa and watch some tv.

I’ve been taking laxatives throughout the day still, but limiting it to just 2 or 3 pills each time, so I’ve only had about 10 pills today. (That’s super low for me.)

Tomorrow I need to be feeling better because I need to get my new exercise bike set up so I can start using it. I will probably make myself do it regardless of how I’m feeling tomorrow. This is good incentive to try to not overdo it with the laxatives tonight. However, I’m not entirely certain how I’m going to assemble exercise equipment with this stupid, swollen hand. We’ll see.

I also need to do laundry in the morning, which means going to the laundromat. With the way I’ve been feeling, that does NOT excite me.

My plan for tonight it to not binge and purge anymore. I am not up to it, and it’s painful on my hand. Also, go to sleep before 2am. And sleep.

Up next, I have potentially exciting news, and potentially not exciting news.

  1. My hand swelled up, back in 2000 like yours is and I went to the GP and it turned out to be shingles. They can give you medication to treat it. It’s worthwhile to get it checked by a Doctor.
