In the grand scheme of things there are probably a lot of people having worse weeks than I’ve had. That said, it’s been a bit rough.
Monday it all started with a bit of a stomach ache and a headache that would last me a good 3 days. The headache was so bad I kept rubbing the top of my head to the point where it is now chapped and red like a carpet burn.
Then later on Monday I started to get really nauseated. I finally couldn’t keep any food down and was just miserable all day into Tuesday. Thankfully my visiting teacher brought me some crackers and gatorade for Tuesday but it was a rough day. Plus, I had to miss going to a play at Hale Theater with my family.
Not to get too graphic but while I was sick things got even worse when retching I pulled a muscle in my back which is quite painful. Luckily by that point the headache had mostly gone away.
While all this was happening I still had work to do and things to take care of. Fortunately I film all my videos (for the most part) on Friday and Saturday so this week was all set, but I had other tasks that needed to be done. The worst of it is I have employee review on Monday. Not exactly my best week to proceed a review, but my boss and coworkers are so understanding and kind it won’t be a problem. Still, not perfect work week.
Anyway, yesterday I did get a break from the tough week and suffered the back pain to watch Eddie the Eagle. This was the perfect movie to watch after a tough week. It’s like Rudy or Cool Runnings- an underdog sports story that makes you want to cheer. I will write a review later on today and will post a link but it made me really happy. I needed that!
Do you have those bad weeks? Of course you do. We all do. It’s part of life and happens from time to time. Thankfully there is always tons to be grateful for and moments where life gives us a break.
I certainly hope you had a better week than I did. Here’s to much better weeks in the future!
Here’s my youtube review of Eddie the Eagle

Feel better soon. I had something similar a couple weeks back. Came down with the worst stomach flu (perhaps food poisoning) that I’ve had in years. Only now am I feeling completely back to normal. Hang in there.
Thanks so much. When it rains it pours sometime! Perfect week to see Eddie the Eagle when you think about it
I’m sorry to hear about you going through all that. I hope you feel better soon. I had a pretty good day yesterday myself, because someone at school finally invited me to hang out at his house and someone I lost touch with messaged me on Facebook. I have a very sensitive stomach, though, and I just got through vomiting in the toilet because my aunt decided to try out a strange soy patty in a sandwich and asked me to test it.
I will be seeing Star Wars Force Awakens with my family in a few hours, though, so I am looking forward to that. I already saw it once and did like it.
Sounds like the taste test was a failure :). Glad you had a good week
My point was I can relate to feeling sick though not as much as you. I’m usually lucky enough that I only get a cold for a few days and then I’m better.
Thanks so much. I’m glad your upset stomach didn’t disrupt what sounds like a good week. That makes me happy. Yay for Star Wars!
