I’m A Sucka

…for corn rows and manicured toes.

You’re so welcome for that flashback to 2001.

I’m not actually a sucker for those things…but I am a sucker for all things promising me digestive health.

PS this entire post is totally not running related…because my digestive system has taken away my ability to run for the day…and I am TICKED.

Whatever this is that I have….Crohn’s/IBD/Reaction to my increased meds/stress WHATEVER…I want to sit my stomach down and give it a serious talking to. This is getting a little annoying. I’m sick of unplanned days off, I’m sick of feeling like I ran a marathon yesterday when I didn’t really do much at all, I’m sick of not being able to eat anything in my fridge, and I’m sick of being sick.

So…I will apparently buy in to just about anything that promises to help.

Yeah. Pretty much anything with that on it…I will try.

Did you know they make Liveactive crystal light?

*holds up water bottle* Yep. Sure do.

How sad is this that I will buy this stuff hoping for a cure? Honestly I realize this is probably just my “condition” and it’s going to be like this and I’ll deal…but MAN I want something to make it go away. I’m still in the stupidly optimistic stage, apparently. And I’m ok with that.

Ok, I’m done whining now. Let’s just focus on the fact that these “episodes” seem to be taking less out of me and now I’m only out for a day or two instead of a week or more.


Ready To Run

I’m ready, ready, ready. Ready to run.

At least mentally that is. Reading everyone’s blogs and haunting the RW forums…is driving me insane. Plus my Higdon book I’d ordered

appeared this week so that’s really making me want to get out the door.

Unfortuneatly I end up still being too sick or tired. So since I haven’t really ran yet and have only managed some yoga and walking….you get to hear about the rest of my life.


So I thought this whole Ambien thing was going to make my life better…but no. Here’s a summary of my drug use and subsequent events thusfar.

Also, let me just say normally I HATE medication…and refuse to be on it….but at this point I’m so despeartly exhausted…I caved.

Friday: 1 Ambien – Sleep, glorious sleep. For a little while. Woke up, but was thankfully groggy and went back to sleep relativly fast. Total amount of sleep was around 9 hours.

Saturday: 2 Ambien – Oh. Good. Lord. I was out of my MIND. I remember being groggy…and then….apparently I started drugged-dialing. Awesome. I called about 5 different people, and texted about 3 more leaving a wake of confusion and slurred mutterings in my wake. And I don’t remember a thing….but plenty of my friends do…so I’ve gotten a lot of fun messages regarding my verbal escapades this week.

Sunday: Started Zoloft….accidentally took a whole instead of a half. Then took 1 Ambien so as to not repeat the previous night. Cue panic and insomina. Up for hours. Not cool. Not at all.

Monday: After taking a Xanax that morning because of the stress from not sleeping…I took HALF a Zoloft and 2 Ambien. Slighty better. Still woke up at Four-goshdern-Thirty. 8 total hours, to the letter…kinda irritating when you were aiming for 10.

Tuesday: Half Zoloft. 2 Ambien. Up at 3:30. 8ish hours, slighty unrestful.

So we’re running low on the Ambien. Kinda worrying me. I KNOW the Zoloft is going to take a long time to get in my system…but it really seems like it’s waking me up instead of relaxing me. I’m going to try it again tonight and tomorrow I’ll call the doctor if it isn’t better.

So that’s really all the excitement in my life. I want to run, my body refuses, and this depresses me. I also want to attend a meeting of the running club that’s tomorrow…but school has to come first. Right? RIGHT?? I haven’t been to a single meeting…but there’s a picnic next weekend. Would it be terrible of me to show up to the fun and not the….well I think the meetings would be fun…

CRAP there’s a 5K this weekend. Crap crap crap crap.


Dear Stomach,

Please stop sucking at life and ruining all my fun. It is rather rude to control someone’s life against their will so therefore I am ordering you to cease and desist at once.

Love and Drugs,

Anyway. I’m going to have to go now and save without spell checking. Please forgive me.

Hey People,

I’m on break from class right now and just wanted to pop in and say hi.

So I haven’t run since Saturday. I got sick Saturday night/Sunday/Monday….Yesterday I felt some better but…just didn’t feel up to it. I’m HOPING for a run today but…really not sure.

I also didn’t sleep last night.

I still have not slept through the night in 2 months.

So…we’re going to see a doctor and maybe get some sleeping pills. The good kind that KEEP you asleep…but the kind you don’t have to take every night. My mom is on them…so it’s possible I get this issue from her.

Anyway…back to class.

Hopefully I’ll run after class today…depends on the stomach/tiredness.
