Progress then Vomiting


The weekend of the 18th went really well.  I managed to get 20,000 words written in 2 days on my paranormal mystery.  Monday morning, I added another two thousand or so.  Then I ate lunch…

I have a consult September 4th to remove my gallbladder.  It seems like an eternity.  On the 20th, I ate lunch and then regretted it for the rest of the day.  I felt queasy and every so often, the queasiness would turn into having to be on my knees – which is pure torture.

And I found myself in too much pain and with too much queasiness to work much that afternoon.  I felt hot, then cold, shaky and dizzy, nauseated, then I’d vomit some, and then I basically just wanted to crawl in a hole and not move again until they took my gallbladder out.

At this point, I don’t care what it looks like.  I don’t care that my blood tests are coming back normal.  I don’t care that it is probably related to my appetite hormone more than my actual gallbladder, I am tired of being derailed because I decided it had been a few days since I ate, I should go ahead and try it.

I just want my body to cooperate for an entire couple of days so I can get a book written.  I have the entire paranormal mystery plotted out in my head.  I know what happens next, let me get it written down damn it.

Fuck it, I’m publishing this immediately, maybe someone will have some advice while I wait on my nurse to call me back that doesn’t include a trip to the ER.  I was at 24,978 words when I ate lunch, so there’s an idea of how much I’m enjoying this change of pace and writing an actual mystery.  There’s a preview of the first chapter scheduled to run later this week, 3 of the 4 people I asked for the opinion of, got back to me and said it had great potential, the 4th had to do homework and didn’t get it read yesterday.

  1. Disclaimer, I don’t know what your medical problems are and I’m not a doctor. I am a 60 year old women living with chronic pain due to a birth defect which leads to many other problems including IBS with nausea and diarrhea. I have found that taking Dramamine often helps with nausea and rolling stomach problems. I hope you find some relief soon. Being disabled and often pretty immobile I read extensively to get out of my head and away from the pain. YOUR books have been some of the best pain meds. I have re-read your books and even picked out some of my favorite parts for short reads when I’m up in the middle of the night pissed off and desperate. Who couldn’t relax and chuckle at Ace raging at Malachi for letting her be kidnapped or when she literally breaks some guys balls. Apologies for the endless post, but that’s why I’m a reader not a writer, tangents and over explanations.
