I am too embarrassed to list all of my food waste. Some is over the past two weeks. No excuses. Well maybe…. Morning sickness…ALL DAY SICKNESS has made it nearly impossible for me to make decent meals. I kind of throw things together lately. Crock pot is great on days when I can let it sit on my deck all day. I can’t stand the smell of food or nearly anything else.
I made some gluten free cornbread for myself. It taste gluten free. I can’t stomach it so the dogs will eat it. I have some spent bananas and plan to make a normal batch of chocolate chip banana muffins and maybe 6 gluten free ones. But I probably should not even attempt some for me. Just the thought makes me feel queasy. Maybe another time.
Someone gave me a lot of natural peanut butter, probably 6 of these containers. I think we used 4. These last 2 smell rancid. BOO! ICK!!
R (my husband) gave the dogs some yucky smelling brown rice earlier. It was pushed to the back of the refrigerator in No Man’s Land (pronounced like that really old television show from my youth…
I know I can be quite the drama queen 😉
Well, I need help eek. I make list but need to know what has worked for other HyperEmesis moms who need to cook and don’t have someone else to cook for you? Or moms with chronic illnesses? How do you survive without help?

I can relate all too well to “all day morning sickness.” If I kept eating a little all day (and night) it helped. Are the older kids able to handle the kitchen duties until this phase passes?
Thank You. Eating is hard to do and really weird right now. I kind of graze. I keep only half of what I consume. I crave french fries or hamburgers not together. I could live with a fresh lemon in my mouth all day. My 13yo son has been doing more than his share of work cooking and cleaning. He also helps with lunches for the littles.
I will try to eat more often. I have noticed I get really sick if my blood sugar drops too much.
