WOW! If ever there was a day that I needed a personal fueling station, today is it! I am exhausted and hitting a major wall; fortunately the Gastroparesis brain fog hasn’t surfaced. Although, it seems as if those pesky GP Elves have spiked my tea once again and are trying to get me to fall asleep so that they can wreak havoc on the house.
Normally in these situations, I would power through an hour or so of quality TV and then go to sleep early. Not today! Today, I have to pack for a business trip that requires me to leave my house at 6:15 am. I also have to drop my dog off at a friend’s house so that she is supervised (and spoiled) while I am gone. My friend has a 3 month old baby that I must also hold and spoil. (He is such a cutie and I love any time that I get to see him!) So needless to say, tonight is going to be hectic and will not be involving a nap.
This is when Gastroparesis gets interesting. You know if you power through everything that you are increasing your likelihood of getting sick. However, the plane will be taking off tomorrow morning with or without me, so I have no choice. All I can do right now is hope that I get everything done, that the clothes that I pack match, and that I pack both shoes in a pair. (While I was advocating in Washington DC, a fellow GPer packed 1 sneaker and left the mate at home. I kid you not! This is a true story. I blame it on the GP Elves, of course!)
Even though I know that somehow I’ll find a way to complete everything, I still would really like to have a nice little charging station like the one in the photo above. There are so many times that it would come in handy. It’s a shame that instead of spiking my tea, that the GP Elves would start inventing this contraption!
