Oh yea, this totally sucks

So Wednesday morning I woke up with a stomach bug. You know it's bad when you're up at 5:30 am feeling like someone is stepping on your stomach. I ran through my head what I ate tuesday, coffee, dry cheerios for lunch because I wasn't feeling like eating anything else, then I made macaroni with meat sauce for dinner.. nothing out of the ordinary, but oh dear lord.. not this. Just for the record, I don't throw up. I don't. Unless.. I've got it bad.. and I had it BAD, real bad. Lets not discuss the migraine on top of it all either.

I managed to drive the kid to school, despite his protests that he should really stay home with me because I shouldn't be driving when I kept tossing my cookies, I assured him I took a 'Pepto' pill, it was a 2 minute drive and I'd be fine (I was) I threw some sweats on (because no, I will not go anywhere in my pajamas), Grabbed my darkest sunglasses (because, I do have to keep my dignity and I didn't have a speck of makeup on, lol) dropped him off at school, stopped at the supermarket and got a big bottle of ginger ale and then I drove back home. I grabbed his warm blanket in my way back to my room because I was freezing despite the sweats and thermal lined sweatshirt I had on and I climbed back into bed, where I stayed all.day.long.

I didn't eat a thing all day, but I downed almost a whole bottle of ginger ale. I had a piece of dry toast around 8pm and went back to bed. Yesterday I managed to get myself back to work and I still had the throbbing headache, but I couldn't bring myself to drink any coffee or eat anything, I just kept a bottle of ginger ale at my side all day. When I got home I hesitantly ate 2 slices of dry toast, a small cup of tea and I was fine. but I have no appetite at all and it sucks. I haven't been this sick in more than 5 years, and now, 3 days later, I'm still not quite over it. Today I had a handful of dry cheerios and a half a small bottle of ginger ale I've got a bowl of plain white rice sitting here in front of me on my desk, but I just don't want it. I've got no appetite, no tummy growls.. nada.

What I want is a chocolate cupcake with buttercream frosting.. but I know that's not right.
