Recappage

I felt kind of sick most of today. I ate more than normal, of course, but this wasn't the regular oh-I-ate-a-lot full feeling; it was pain. The food was great - I mean, my grandmother's stuffing really can't be topped - but I think that whole gastric-slowing issue kicked in again. For readers who might not be as familiar with the effects of anorexia: when your body is in starvation mode, it grabs on to any food it gets and doesn't let it ... out. Yet another reason why recovery is so hard.

There were plenty of good things about today - I should focus on those, and not on the leaden-stomach feeling. Animals were a surprisingly significant portion of the conversation. After dinner, we played trivia games - with a buzzer set. My family is such a funny, interesting, and exceedingly good-hearted bunch of people.

My job is among the many things for which I'm thankful. But ... 5 AM? Really? The good thing is I'll be out of there by 1-ish, so I'll have some day to myself.

Ooh, the Lead Tummy, everyone's bestest friend...I know that feeling is hard to sit with,sorry that you're uncomfortable tonight, but hang in there. Remember that with those annoying recovery side effects, the only way out is through...sticking with it will pay off in the end. It sounds like your family is a lot of fun, I'm glad you got to celebrate with them.

Happy Thanksgiving, take care!
