I've done it before, but I had to do it again...I gave up Diet Coke.
I didn't want to. But it became clear that I had to. I'm pretty sure it's what's been causing my bouts with nausea over the last few months. I still can't prove it 100%, but last week, after having to call in sick again on Monday because I was just too nauseous to even move for 8 hours, I decided that drinking Diet Coke might be an issue. So I did without it on Monday (of course), and then on Tuesday I went all day without any caffeine at all, and just dealt with the fallout. (Headache, mood, sleepiness...) By Wednesday, I was willing to try caffeine, but in a different form. So I got an iced tea. And it went ok.
So by the time Saturday rolled around, I was really, really missing my daily Diet Coke! Like, really really. So I told Leo to go ahead and grab me one when he went out to grab us caffeine from the QT that morning.
And by about 1:30, I was feeling like hammered shit again.
I've done this sort of thing before. In fact, I'm sure there are references to it in my archives, but I don't have the desire to look it up right now, to be honest.
I'll be ok, I guess. I'm just a little sad about it. Could be worse, I suppose! So I'll count my blessings, and just keep sipping away at my tea...
