My stomach really, really hurts.
Nothing makes it feel better.
Not hot water bottles, not peppermint tea, not fresh papaya, not Maalox, not yoga.
Hurting takes a lot of energy!
I also have been crying off and on all day; partly because I hurt so much, partly because I am stressed out about some stuff, and partly because I am so stressed about hurting so much.
I wish that my tears were a torrent, not a trickle.
These little fits and starts of drizzle accomplish nothing.
I don't think I can muster up a soul-cleansing, stomach-relieving cry.
Not even this picture cheers me up.
