...its been a ruff year so far...

This year has started off rough,

First my back goes out but I remained less than gruff,

Now my tummy does ache & I got the Hershey squirts,

Sorry if it seems I am giving you some sob stuff…


Burpin’ & belchin’, poopin’ & stoopin’,

Now my permanent smile is almost droopin’,

Got to with my body get to regroupin’,

For I used up all my sick time,

As at work, up the ladder I do climb…


Going to bed early tonight,

To avoid the inevitable with time fight,

Want to get a few extra hours sleep,

Maybe then I won’t feel like I am walkin’ in it deep...


So prayers will help, though there are those more needin’,

Could it be inside I may be bleedin’,

No, I just think the pain pill I took yesterday,

Got me to speedin’ so now my tummy is just takin’ over,

Yep, my body is telling’ me to slow down, it is over me supersedin’…

I got up with a back ache, but now
I feel better after reading of
your pains.
Let Rufus walk on your back..
Hope all gets well for 5 minutes

You'll need to go for a check up with the doctor. Perhaps the Hersheys are giving you gas. Sometimes gas can be painful. Hope you'll feel better soon.

Lucky Star Sandie May Angel :o)

Perhaps it is just somethin' you ate, Ed. Sounds a bit like food poisoning to me. Be sure to keep yourself hydrated and get some electrolites in you if you can...but not the ones with all the sugar like gatorade...the sugar gives you more intestinal distress..."Smart Water" if you can find it, will help a lot. Even some room temperature flat 7up or ginger ale will make you feel a whole lot better....hope this all passes quickly!!(no pun intended-lol)
Take care,
