Burning glass. [Tuesday, Oct. 23rd, 2007|05:29 pm]
The richest girl in town.
Well, it's now Day 10 of me feeling like there's a piece of burning glass embedded in my abdomen. I'd blame it on the water in Soviet Canukistan, but really this started in Portland, OR, and while I can't say much for or against that state after my first and only trip through it, I somehow doubt it's the cause. I'm not used to having stomach aches, though, or nausea. I hope it isn't an ulcer. I don't have health insurance.

Anyway, from freewillastrology.com:

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Spiritual teacher A.H. Almaas believes that a genuinely creative act is always motivated by generosity. If that's true, how do you explain all the ego-obsessed "geniuses" who treat everyone like dirt even as they churn out their supposedly brilliant art? In any case, I'm siding with Almaas' definition, and I advise you to keep it in mind now that you're in the most imaginative and self-expressive phase of your astrological cycle. To ensure that your creative juices keep flowing in ways that make you feel really good, dedicate them to spreading inspiration and giving gifts. Halloween costume suggestions: a pregnant painter, a flower exuding bursts of pollen, a sexy midwife.

I do hope you feel better.

And my friend took it down after doing some editing. This one should work.
It's an interesting vid.

Looking for clinics in the bEast. And, apparently I'm being treated to acupuncture by Miss Whits and the TDM. :)

Oh, no. I hope you feel better soon. Take it easy on yourself (as easy as you can). I know you're taking the best care of yourself you can. Sometimes the health food stores (the ones that are staffed) can recommend herbal remedies that help without incurring the costs of a doctor visit? Gar, I wish I could tell you something you didn't already know. Good luck!

After chatting with a nurse and a doctor over the phone, it sounds like gastritis. I'm going to try acupuncture and antacids and see how they work.

I've had those mysterious pains. Have you tried yogurt? Sometimes yogurt for a couple does will help lessen it a bit.

Yeah, my mom had some issues with wheat a few years ago and stopped eating it. I'm not sure if she's still avoiding it or not. Right now, I'm trying to stick to the BRAT diet as much as possible (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) with a few other things tossed in because I'm stubborn.
