Ana Hiding in the Bed (August 22 2013)[i]

Waking up just before 1 p.m. with incredible lower abdominal and bladder pain. I drank a beer before I went to bed so it's only natural I would need to pee when I wake up. But this feels different. My back hurts too.

I nourish myself with Apple Cider Vinegar Honey Tea.

Researching online.

Eventually I get around to actually eating something: Hot Cinnamon Oat Bran with Blueberries, Figs, Brown Sugar, and Milk.

I can't do anything but lie down. I'm feverish and useless.

Watching a moving and emotional documentary about the descendants of Hitler's officers called Hitler's Children (2011).

Out in the hallway Josh gives me a few droplets of Colloidal Silver to help with my immune system. Sophie, his longhaired sweet natured Chihuahua recognizes I'm sick and offers affection.

Homemade Soup with Ginger, Edamame, Mixed Vegetables, and Lo Mein Noodles.

I took some Ibuprofen earlier and now I'm feeling about 80%, good enough to join Josiah and Calum at the storage unit for practice.

Ana is kind enough to pick up some raw ginger and mineral water from the store. I'm weak as a mouse. My condition doesn't get better unless I take those pain relievers. At the house we shred ginger into a pot of boiling water to make Ginger Tea. Upstairs in my room I put on Silver Linings Playbook (2012). I already saw it a while ago but I wanted to share it with her. She sinks into the crevice where the bed meets the wall.  I snack on some Grapes and Lentil Chips. Sipping on Ginger Tea.

Me: "Thank you for keeping me company. I appreciate the moral support."

Sipping on Carbonated Mineral Water and playing a few rounds of Unreal Tournament. Then off to sleep around 3:30 a.m.
