A Sausage Took me out

The last two days (and today) have been wildly dull and it’s all due to a sausage.

On Saturday my partner and I were attending house inspections due to our need to move. Between the first and the second we stopped off at a cafe for breakfast. Decided it would be easier than eating at home due to the time between the first and second inspection.

Anyway, we ate, I got a side of sausage even though I’m working on minimising the amount of meat I eat for various reasons. Ate the sausage, it tasted not quite like a sausage I’d had before but it was fine.

We left and headed to the second place which, like the first, wasn’t something we could go for but not for the same reason. I then dropped my partner off near the last place as I had to start work when its inspection was on.

I came home, got ready for work and started feeling dizzy. Went to the bathroom, came back to my desk and sat there for a bit. Felt like I had to go to the toilet again, got up, walked a couple of metres and then had to lie on the floor as the dizziness was at its weakest lying down.

I slowly made my way to the bathroom. When my partner came home she saw me whilst I was trying to crawl and asked if I needed help whilst rushing over. Of course I said yes, but there was little that could be done. I continued my journey onward to the toilet and it took about two hours, possibly a little less.

Whilst this was going on I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to call in sick but I eventually had to as I wasn’t at my desk. I then had to call someone who asked me to do some photo work and tell them I couldn’t do the job due to being unable to get off the floor. Thankfully they were happy to get me onto something else, but losing both the day of work and the photo job cost me around six hundred dollars, money that is quite badly needed right now.

So I got to the bathroom and lay on the floor there until I was able to get up and use the toilet, did that, went back to lying down. Gradually I felt as though I needed to throw up and so I got back to the toilet and did that too and a bit of sausage came out. After that the dizziness started to ease up a bit and eventually I went to bed to try and sleep, which I wasn’t quite able to do but the rest was needed. I may have dozed off for five minutes, maybe a bit longer, but I remember being awake for a while.

Anyway, things got a bit easier over time but I spent the rest of the day and evening resting. A lot of burping throughout with the aftertaste of the sausage which wasn’t fun.

Yesterday I was okay to work but I was quite sensitive to motion. Come today and the dizziness is worse, though not as bad as it was on Saturday. That said, feeling pretty unable to do things, but such is life really.

It’s annoying as right now I need to not rest. I need to be getting things done and of course this is a bit of an inhibitor. Not the worst thing in the world; not the best. Still alive and resting and so I’m doing okay. Just need to keep moving rather than being stationary.

I don’t quite know why I’ve written about this. I think it’s due to it being the biggest thing that’s happened in my life over the past few days. It’s not that interesting. It’s just life happening.

Oh well.
