up at 4 am

arrgh! I woke up at 4 this morning feeling sick to my stomach. I don't know what the deal is!

So, we got a car yesterday. It is a chrysler pacifica. I guess it is a crossover, like kind of between a station wagon and an suv. It is definitaly the nicest car I have ever had. It was 7300 so we had to get a car loan, but we had 3000 to put down so the loan is not that big. Still, it is the first time I have had a car loan so I was a bit freaked out about it.

The proccess of buying the car was relatively hassle-free. So why was I so stressed out yesterday? I eventually had to take a seroquel and go to bed early. I couldn't even drive the car that I was so excited to get! It seems like whenever there is any major change, even if it is a GOOD change, I get super stressed out and shut down. It's like I cant handle anything anymore.

Baby is doing great! He has already started to gain a little weight and I haven't seen him chew on his hair since his teeth were clipped. It's funny, I didn't realize how much i loved that little furball until this crisis happened :).

Well, that's about it. On the ED front, there has been a little purging but not too much. Weight is stable somehow in spite of all the nausea and I have mixed feelings about that. I did go to the gym yesterday for the first time in like 2 weeks and got SO nauseated on the treadmill. It felt like motion sickness or something. But still, i am paying for that stupid membership so I am going to try to go more often. I am going to really try to cut back on the diet pop and coffee and just drink water and tea so maybe that will help.

I guess since I am up I will shower and go to early church. Hope you all have a great day!

I bought a car on my own for the first time last spring, and was surprised and slightly disturbed at how easy it was to just walk in, get a loan for a scary amount of money, and leave with a new vehicle! Glad you found one that you like!

Hang in there and treat yourself kindly. <3 said...

Car loans are very common. I'm glad you have a working vehicle now. How horrible that you're feeling nauseous... I hope you feel better soon. Be nice to yourself :)

Cheers for a new car AND for Baby's health!

Maybe you can take a nap later today?

Yay! I am so glad Baby is doing better. :) I have never had to take out a loan, but I might have to soon. My 95 nissan sentra has 130,000 miles and is still going but I worry constantly that it will break down. The good thing in getting a new car (or newer) car, is that you don't have to worry about it breaking down all the time. Don't worry, it will be worth it!

Sorry your still feeling nauseous. Ginger is supposed to be a natural anti-nausea remedy. Maybe try some ginger tea? (I haven't tried it, so if it's gross, don't blame me. :) I always like chamomile tea when my stomach is upset. I agree with the cutting down on soda. Sometimes a little 7-up will help my upset stomach, but a 20 oz coke just makes it worse.

I hope you feel better soon!!!

i hate waking up in the middle of the night. it makes me panic.

i'm sorry your awful nausea continues. have they checked for an ulcer. my ulcer makes me nauseous, especially when i'm taking a lot of meds. advil and my ulcer are arch enemies. also when i'm stressed, my ulcer churns away.

would your insurance cover a nutritionist? i'm going to look into that.

feel better, lisa!!!!
