Balancing act

I still haven't gotten over the nausea I've had all morning. Yesterday and the day before it was manageable, but not this morning. I tried a bath with lavender and chamomile, no dice. I have done numerous exercises of taking deep breath. No luck there either. I may try drinking Sprite, although ginger ale is supposed to work better for pain related nausea. There is a co-op across from Brewberry's, but I'm not sure if the pain of walking there would cause more nausea and consequently negate the effects of the ginger ale. If I did go there, they might not even carry it, and how does one carry a 12 pack while working a dog?

One of the people I work with in disability services had offered to get some and bring it in on Tuesday, but I felt I was getting this under control then. I should have taken her up on the offer I guess, but I kind of felt like I should be handling this stuff on my own. Anyway, I can't decide what to do. Do I try Sprite? Mint tea? Knocking my head against a wall and nocking myself out (I'm kidding on that last one... sort of.) This is awful. I'm supposed to be doing something for French drama club tonight, but don't know if that's such a good idea. Maybe I'll email our director and explain that I'm not feeling well. I feel bad about bugging out, but this is awful.

another thought is whether there's something else causing me to be sick to my stomach? I could go to health and wellness, but I don't want to deal with this. This is awful.
