Day 28 Introducing The Dumbest Person I Know
You guys! My esophagus was on fire this weekend! I’d totally forgotten to take my prescribed antacid when I stopped taking the tamoxifen. And man, I didn’t realize how much that stuff was working until it was no longer working (for lack of taking it) I am the dumbest person I know!
I have the most fine example of just how dumb I am but I can’t share it with you for awhile. Not until one more package comes in from a set of ebay purchases. Then I will share with you just how dumb I am.
Anyway – esophagus/fire. All weekend long.
Today I decided to walk away from the Diet Coke.
About a couple of hours after taking the medication this morning my reflux was gone. Instead of drinking Diet Coke (I am an addict) I switched over to those little Crystal light powders that you poor in a bottle of water.
Oh sure, they’ve still got the killer aspartame in them. But they aren’t carbonated and I need something besides plain water. Need!
I feel so much better, except for the headache thing.
Hello lack of caffeine! Well, not lack. I did have one cup of coffee this morning. But typically I have two cups of coffee in the morning, 3 to 4 cans of Diet coke and another cup or two of coffee or tea with caffeine in the afternoon.
I told you I was dumb!
Oh, and my coworker said to me, as she saw me go grab another one of my water bottles out of the fridge, “Why don’t you just refill you water bottle with the Culligan water? That way you don’t have to bring a bunch of water bottles to work. Just one a day!”
God! Why didn’t I think of that?
You know this not dieting thing?
I’m eating like a regular person. And I’m not overeating. I’m just eating when I get hungry and eating small amounts. Guilt free! It’s awesome!
