Well, thought since I was feeling a bit better and things were looking up, we would have a few friends over last night for a wee get together. We moved house back in June but I was diagnosed nearly straight away so never had a housewarming so this seemed the perfect time to do it.
Friends (only invited four!) arrived at seven and by half eight I was needing my bed!! Forgot how boring it is when everyone else is drinking and you are stone cold sober. So I sat and ate all the munchies instead. Not good when you are trying not to overeat due to steroids! Managed to keep myself going by drinking many cans of pepsi max and they finally left at one o'clock in the morning. I didn't really mind as my husband had a ball and he's not had much fun lately so it was nice to see him enjoy himself for a change instead of having to worry about me.
Due to the pepsi and the overeating I ended up not being able to sleep and had major heartburn all night. Eventually got to sleep about six only to have to get up at eight to take first lot of mediciine! So blooming shattered, joints all sore, splitting headache, felt sick and still got hearburn. Have spent all day lying around trying to recover. What a waste of a day! Thank goodness not working till Tuesday as I think I might need tomorrow in my bed!
Moral of story - Obviously no longer a party animal! Dreading Christmas work nights out as I think I might have to be the party pooper this year and be the one who goes home straight after the meal
