Christmas Hug

 ``````

God! I never get sick,

24 hour stomach virus,

The waves of nausea,

Each one seems longer than the next,

And then cold sweats,

Kick covers off,

Pull covers up,

Moan a little, so I can hear I'm still alive.

 

Oh how I hate nausea.

 

Finally, 3:30 a.m.

I purge, gratefully so,

And my throat burns,

The taste is awful,

And I curl up like a kitten in bed

To listen to the wind howl outside my window.

It's warm and I feel comforted.

 

I doze off thinking next time 

I'll be more sensitive about my needs

So I don't have to puke my guts up

To feel comforted.

 

I hate nausea,

Oh I hate it

Like another Christmas spent

With everyone else but you.

How sweet of you, Bishu.

How sweet of you, Bishu. Well, doctors are "supposed to be" people who teach you how to take care of yourself so they can have patients like me who never have to call them because they've pretty much learned how to stay healrhy enough to get over things like puke. Unfortunately, for the most part in the united states they are just pawns who play a game to make money for insurance companies, stockholders and big pharma. 

 

I had no idea you were so squeamish, Bishu. How sensitive. Now that is very attractive on you, sir. ;-) thx for the read.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Nightlight,

Even your temporary ailment seems to help you bring out a nice poem like this.  Great!  Nevertheless, I don't wish you to have such a 'Nausea'.
