Gonna give up chocolate for awhile !

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Yesterday i drank a cup of hot chocolate and before the day was at a close my eyes got really irratated ! emoticon They say chocolate causes inflamation and i found out yesterday it does cause trouble with my eyes so the only thing i can do is quit it and i have already quite soda pop which they say can cause problems . I'll do anything it takes to save my eyesight . Today i went back to 4 times aday for the eye drops till this clears up again. I been keeping my portions down and keeping busy doing odds and ends . We are going to town to get gas and pick up dh eye drops to use after surgery next monday . He is having cataracts taken off the right eye. The eye drops are 46 dollars a bottle . Good thing i put alittle back for a rainy day ! emoticon DH is wanting to go to town so i better close for now but have a great day !

    I agree with several others - it would be hard to give up chocolate, but if it's a choice between that & my eyesight, my eyes would win every time! Praying things will be better for you soon!

In Him,

    I know chocolate is very high in potassium and I can't have it for that reason. Good luck with your challeng of no chocolate.

    I had no idea that chocolate caused irritation but it sounds like you are prudent to do whatever you need to in order to save your eyesight.

    Praying for the eye situation...and I can't do chocolate anymore either due to tummy problems..but found some chocolate flavored tea by bigelow and it helps when I get a craving..

    Not easy giving up the chocolate. Especially at the beginning but you can do it. Sending prayers for your eyesight and your husbands. All things through Christ. emoticon
