I've had wheat poisoning two weeks in a row, now. Yes, I call it poisoning: I don't react well to it, and it damages my patience and my health.
Last week, it started the previous Friday: I went with my family out for pizza. It's a place with GF pizza options, and I've never had a problem with them before. This time, however, the kitchen staff were suffering from a case of the mega-derps. They made two REGULAR pizzas, and sent both out, then tried to make good on their mistake. But I'm pretty sure they didn't clean off the counter, and got flour all over my pizza.
I spent Friday night, Saturday, Saturday night, and all the way through to midday Monday REALLY suffering. Not just digestive discomfort but active pain.
I was still feeling the aftermath (more CFS symptoms than usual) throughout the rest of the week.
Yesterday, I went with my family up to my in-laws' to celebrate Father's Day. My MIL bought Great Value Pulled Pork--it's excellent, by the way--and made sandwiches.
I really should have thought. I should have left the pulled pork alone. I didn't.
Yes, I've been having issues since.
This morning, I took some Midol Complete--the pyrilamine maleate helps a bit on squashing involuntary smooth muscle cramping. And then I got a kitty on me. And on the heat pad across my belly. And she started purring, then went limp. Next thing I know, I'm waking up an hour later with a crick in my neck, and it was time for lunch.
I took another dose early this afternoon, but took it too far after lunch, and wound up mildly nauseous. Went and laid down flat (only thing that helps), and woke up when Andrew got home.
And found that the pixie had spent part of her afternoon straightening the dining room/TV room.
I was very glad my MIL kept the imp for a two-night stay. I'll be picking him up tomorrow afternoon, but the worst of it should be past by then.
