I am now recognized as a Basic Combatant in unarmed combat by Dueling Arts International! I'd hoped to make the Actor Combatant, but I'm pretty sure it was because they couldn't hear me well on the video. I didn't get recognition for the broadsword, sadly. But that doesn't make me love the broadsword less.
I ended up not going to class last night. Well, I went, but then I went back home. My stomach was really bothering me. It felt very acidic and sore. Nothing I had helped, and it was still feeling bad when I woke up. It's pretty much felt like crap all day, although tonight it hurts less. I've also had a lot of gas and been burping A LOT.
I realized that I've been having weird stomach symptoms for awhile. Over the past several months, I've noticed that I will, sometimes after eating, feel nauseous. I find myself burping much more. Over the last several weeks, I've been having stomach aches off and on. I've mostly put this down to stress, but now I'm a bit worried that there is something more going on.
I've made an appointment with a GI doctor for next week. I hope it's not something serious (or requiring of removal any unnecessary bile ducts) because I'm going to be leaving for HI in 2 weeks and 2 days, damnit!
This has given me a needed distraction from things with S. I've found myself not calling or e-mailing him. I'm just trying to take care of myself.
