It was a terrible night. The nausea was bad, and I only slept about four hours. The smell of everything made me sick. The taste of water made me sick, yet I was extremely thirsty. There is a sickening taste in my mouth. This comes from stopping the fast early. My body is still trying to fast, and we are switching horses in mid-stream so to speak.
I finished my speech. Now I just need to practice it a little bit. I'm also still working on reading through the Bible.
During the day I felt a little better. I continued doing hand laundry and re-arranging my suitcase. A good sign I am feeling better...I tweezed my eyebrows! John was nice enough to bring me some bottled spring water. I hate to be supporting privatized water in plastic bottles, but the rain water was making the nausea worse.
Lunch was watermelon...and not a very good watermelon, either. Arkansas melons are the best. This one was actually horrible. You'd think a faster wouldn't be so picky.
Consultation was at 2:00. I had a paper written out to read to John on what all I was experiencing and what I thought I needed. haha He gave me his sweet smile and listened politely. I don't think I phased him at all, though. Basically what I am craving is salt, oil, and starch. He said, "We'll see what we can do." We also talked about emotional health and being able to freely express emotion. It was a good session.
Supper was more watermelon....still not good.
The nights are long when you are not feeling well. Once it gets dark, I can't hold my eyes open..then I wake up in the middle of the night while it is still dark. I went to sleep at 8:00.
No problem with asthma today and the nausea was much better by the end of the day. My energy levels are starting to rise.
