I got the results of my labs and ultrasound today. Everything looks good with the labs and there are no gallstones. My doctor has told me to try Prilosec OTC, so I picked some up this evening and will start it in the morning.
I've been spending the last 20 minutes or so trying to decide whether to go to choir tonight. I like choir and I've missed it the last 2 weeks. A part of me feels like I should be there, but then there is the nauseous and tired part of me that is calling me all sorts of a fool.
I think the hangup has something to do with my feeling ill not being a "real" illness. Now, obviously, something is wrong with me, but I'm probably not carrying a bug or contagious or anything. I'm certainly not running a fever...and well, fever was the measurement by which most illnesses were measured when I was little.
It's that should part that says I need to be really ill to go to choir. There is a fainter, more rational voice, that says that working out your diaphragm while you are nauseous might not be a good idea (and that promises that there are 5 more months until the concert, so not to worry).
So I'm not going tonight, but it is with real struggle that I am staying home to nurture the tummy and get rest.
