I have been sitting around rather uselessly for over a week because of abdominal pain around my gallbladder. I don't have gallstones, and I'm going in for some radioactiving tracing testing tomorrow. I may get to have my gallbladder removed.
I hate feeling like this. I'm constantly looking forward to the time I can take my next pain pill and trying to distract myself from the pain (which honestly isn't too bad when the meds are working). I'm crabby and ill-tempered. I'm missing out on things I was looking forward to. Small chores like unloading the dishwasher or folding a load of laundry are major accomplishments. Is this how old people feel? I hope it doesn't last much longer. Thanks for listening to my whining.
