I've been sick for 4 days now and am fighting the urge to eat to feel better. You know what I mean? It's not so much that the food/eating helps the symptoms at all. It's more like eating DISTRACTS me from feeling bad. So I want to eat to feel good for a few minutes rather than feeling bad. How do you combat this? Especially in a weak state of feeling sick?
I think I have the flu. I've had a nonstop headache, tiredness, and might waves of occasional nausea (but not enough to stop me form eating... and no puking either). I have been getting hit with severe dizzy spells, so bad I am not driving. I feel like passing out every so often and have to sit down. It sucks. My heart rate seems a lot slower too, and I have ZERO energy. I am trying to take care of myself with fluids and vitamins and chicken soup... BUT I don't want to gain weight from eating too much and not being able to exercise.
I feel so awful. Suggestions? (I am probably going to the dr tomorrow if it's not better and if I can get myself there... although I have no insurance so I hate to go for the flu).
