When you have an Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the sad truth is that you end up missing a lot of things. I have missed so many birthday parties, baby showers, social invitations...I've even missed church these last few Sundays, but today was a day that I could not miss. Today my soon to be Sister-In-Law was shopping for a wedding dress and I could not miss it.
I honestly didn't know how I was going to make it. I felt absolutely terrible when I got up this morning. I was still suffering from the side effects of the Methotrexate that I took on Friday and I was afraid to leave the bathroom. I knew today was an i credibly important day and that I had to muster through it. I did too for the most part. Only one moment was really touch and go and that was after a blood draw. The world started to spin and I lost almost all control of my body. Thankfully I was able to keep my wits about me and not pass out. A jar of Naked Juice helped perk me up and soon we were on our way to our dress adventure. Three hours later we have a very happy soon to be bride and dresses for all the ladies in the bridal party. It was such a great afternoon and I am very thankful that I didn't miss it.
The end of the day leaves me completely exhausted. I am so glad that I put dinner in the crock pot before I left because even though my body is too tired to eat, my boys will have dinner ready for them tonight. I say my body is too tired because that is honestly how it feel. My muscles are so fatigued that standing or holding my arms up is hard. The thought of feeding myself of digesting foos is just too tiring. Its sad, but it's true. So instead i am curled up in my comfy blanket and drinking a cup of tea.
