Stomach Pains (Day 67)


I can stand certain stomach pains. I know how to deal with nervousness, with butterflies. I know how to calm nausea. When it comes to the flu, I am an expert at dealing with colds and tonsillitis, strep throat and sinusitis. The one thing that I really can’t stand is the stomach flu.

My entire house for the past two weeks has basically been a tornado of flu. We all had colds and stuffy noses. Then, one of my roommates got the stomach flu. I thought I was safe, but no. I think the last time I got an actual stomach ache was in high school.  I hadn’t had a stomach ache in so long that I instantly thought of the worst case scenario- a stomach ulcer or something.

I hope this post isn’t a complete turn-off. It’s just all I have to write about today… thank god Breaking Bad is on netflix… it’s been a really great distraction.

What do you do to cure a stomach ache? I would love to know.

  1. The only thing that helps ease it for me is sticking to liquids and teas with fresh mint or ginger. Ginger ale helps a bit, but can make it worse if you have too much. Then bland things like toast after awhile. Hope you guys feel better and healthy soon. O_0
