trying not to complain

I'm pregnant. And this morning sickness is more like all day sickness. They really should change the name of it. I'm trying my (somewhat) best to deal with it. It's been a bit of a touch and go experiment with different remedies. For nausea I drink anything ginger, for indigestion and acid reflux I whine and moan then chew Tums, which also gives me calcium, for general stomach unsettles I eat crackers, for fatigue I nap (of course) or try to stay awake with deep breathing when I'm at work, and I hold my breath when I go through the newly painted corridor in my condo lobby (I can't stand the smell of 'construction'). I have lost some of my taste buds and I constantly have a weird negative feeling of un-taste in my mouth. I don't know how else to explain it, but it's like a super bland taste of nothingness. I have stopped drinking coffee not only due to caffeine but also because coffee doesn't smell like coffee anymore. I don't like to eat sweets and desserts as much as I used to but I look forward to dry and salty snacks like popcorn. And I discovered a few days ago that I'm all of a sudden lactose intolerant. I had milk and yogurt and boy did it not sit well. Food is such a big part of my life so for me this all day sickness thing is more like having a outer body experience. I feel like I have lost my identity. Weird.
