Hello.

Ask me anything   I'm Emma O. I spend my days drawing, coding, eating, running and moaning. I've lost about 70lb and ran my first half marathon last year and will be training for my first marathon this year so I talk about running and weight loss quite a lot! Oh and I like porridge/oatmeal a little too much...

All the pain.

The past few days have been super tough. My tongue seems to be taking forever to heal and I’m still in a lot of pain. Felt a bit guilty yesterday because it was the boy’s birthday and I was so drugged up on painkillers that I had to take multiple naps and go to bed really early. My sleep was so broken last night because I kept waking up in pain so it’s not been fun.

He has a friend visiting who we don’t get to see that often and talking too much hurts so I haven’t exactly been the most sociable person. It’s annoying because he has a new girlfriend who he’s moved in with and I want to ask a million questions but trying to keep a conversation going is actually really painful so I’ve just kept quiet :(

Everyone is super understanding though. They happily drove me to an awesome ice cream parlour yesterday so I could get some tasty relief for my tongue :P

With the exception of the black eye a few weeks back this is the first seizure I’ve had in a while where I’ve hurt myself, I was hoping they were starting to improve slightly but it seems not. It’s annoying because I felt absolutely fine beforehand. The only thing I can think is that I had a mega session in the gym that morning and my body was exhausted still? I dunno…

Apologies if you’re still reading. It hurts to moan to people in real life so you’re getting all of my grumbles instead :P

The boy is 30 today. I’m going out with an old man.

Oh iced coffee, I love you.

Oh epilepsy, I hate you.

I just had to make a trip to Costa to get an iced coffee as I needed some caffeine and hot drinks are not my friend at the moment. Teamed with some ibuprofen, I feel almost normal. For now anyway…

I very nearly started crying at my desk this morning, I was in ridiculous amounts of pain. Anyone who’s had the pleasure of chewing their tongue up probably knows it gets worse before it gets better, its a pretty unpleasant experience.

Surprisingly I don’t feel too guilty about eating an entire 4 pack of pain au chocolats last night. They were the first thing I’d eaten all day that didn’t make me want to cry in pain so I was super thankful for them and just ended gobbling them all up!

I have yesterdays salad to eat for lunch but I have absolutely no desire to eat it.

Keeping my fingers very tightly crossed that my tongue heals quickly. The boy’s birthday meal tomorrow is going to be a bundle of fun if I can only manage a few bites of something. Would it be acceptable to order ice cream as a main meal?

One more day of work then a 5 day weekend! AWWW YEEAAAAAHHH!

It’s the boy’s 30th birthday tomorrow (30? When the hell did that happen!?) so I’m taking it off and then its Easter. Woop!

I hope today goes fast, the boy worked the weekend shift so I haven’t seen him in a week and a half and I’m going slightly crazy!

GET ME ICE CREAM.

iamemmao:

My seizure bitten tongue is really killing today. I brought salad and yoghurt and blackberries in for my lunch but I’m seriously tempted to just go out and buy a tub of ice cream.

I JUST WANT ICE CREAM.

LOTS AND LOTS OF ICE CREAM.

Or an ice lolly…

Or an iced coffee…

Something icy and cold…

Also craving a sausage bap but that’s unrelated.

Failed at eating salad, managed the yoghurt but the blackberries hurt a bit, bought a iced coffee thing from the enemy (aka Starbucks). Its soothed my tongue looooads.

fasterphil asked: Aww come on!!!!


Answer:

Assuming you’re talking about the great south run then I’m definitely considering it. One of my best mates lives in Portsmouth and it’d be a good excuse to go visit :P

I didn’t win! My cake turned out a little dry…
I got beat by an amazing ferrero rocher cake so I’m not too bitter, it was really really good and definitely deserved to win.
Probably would have won if the boss had let me do carrot cake though :P
