Last night, I had an incredibly entertaining night.
I went to a show with W, JF, and our friends from new year’s day. I had a glass of wine pre-show and a glass of wine at intermission. After, we went downtown to hit a party at a bar. I drank water, while everyone else continued imbibing. We danced a little (excellent dj) and had a blast. I think I was home by midnight.
I felt really great, until I didn’t.
Around 2 am, I became ill, which continued until about 8:30 this morning.
I cannot imagine I was alcohol poisoned from so little to drink, and I doubt I was food poisoned because I prepared my own meal pre-show from ingredients I have already used. Strangely, I feel just fine now, if tired.
I laughed when I looked at myself in the mirror. I look terrible — grey, gaunt — and the result on the scale proves it. It’s not a real weight, it’s the absence of anything within my body.
Still, I spoke with both W and JF today and we all agreed that was a great group and an entertaining night. I am enjoying putting myself out there more, accepting invitations, and being social. It used to feel like a chore, but now, it’s blast. I like being out, I love my friends, and there are always entertaining things happening in town.
Now, if only I can avoid the source of what sickened me, I will be a very happy girl.
