Today, I desperately needed a mental health day, so I took the day off work and got some junk food and wine. A few hours later, I'm in hospital with gallstones and pancreatitis, needing an emergency surgery. My mental health day turned into multiple weeks off work, and a lot of pain. FML

Well you deserved it for junk food, just as I did. Next time, don't eat too much food at once, especially fatty food.

I find straight up cutting portions in half helps.

Gallstones and pancreatitis don't typically develop to emergency surgery stage from scratch within hours. Perhaps feeling run down from the growing illness was part of why you felt you so desperately needed a mental health day?

Oh man I feel you. I just recently spent almost two months in the hospital due to necrotizing pancreatitis, also due to gallstones (though mine was from a gallstone removal which didn't go 100% as planned). It. Sucked. Ass. I wish you a speedy recovery, though if it's like mine it's gonna take a while to get back up to speed.
