For some reason I have not been hungry today. I had my protein drink for breakfast. And then for lunch just a few odds and ends (like a sugar free pudding ). And now it's dinner time..and i have eaten 590 calories thus far. I keep going through dinner options in my mind and the thought of eating ANYTHING makes me feel sick.
The last time I experienced this was when I was in the hospital with a dislocated hip. For a week I was in just way too much pain to want to eat. Today my pain levels are through the roof. And I confess that a big part of my lack of enthusiasm comes from the fact that if I want to eat, it will mean walking to the kitchen and preparing something. Even dishing out cottage cheese sounds like it would hurt too much to hold any appeal.
For days like today, I have my room stocked with crackers, dried fruit. rice cakes. etc. I just wish there was room in here to put a mini refrigerator in. It's the cold liquids that keep me stumbling to the kitchen. I have a liter double walled beverage thermos thing that will keep drinks cold all day. I just need about 4 more of them!
I'm not going to worry about it.
