10 More Days of Antibiotics :( Again..
Friday, April 05, 2013
Ok, as of April 1st 2013, I was 220lbs. I entered a DietBet.com bet for $50 that I could lose 4% of my bodyweight in 28 days. So I have until April 28th to get it done. I have been pretty consistent in losing. I have been diagnosed with Strep Throat for the 3x in 6 weeks. I am on a 10-day antibiotic treatment *again*. Being sick really has wrecked my diet as well as adding antibiotics to my diet.
On Wednesday, I went to work at the pain clinic. I grabbed a Subway buffalo chicken salad on my way in and ate it at around 11:30am. My head started throbbing and I noticed I was having trouble seeing the computer screen and what was written on the white papers. My boss (who is a doctor) told me I was having a migraine with an aura. He asked whether I have frequent migraines and whether I was on my cycle. “No” to both, in fact I don’t have a cycle due to a contraceptive injection I get every 3 months. He gave me a pain medicine for migraines that we give the patients and didn’t question him because he knows what he’s doing, and does this all day. About 20 mins after taking the little migraine pill I excused myself to the bathroom to start vomiting, but before I got to the door he grabbed me by the arm into the procedure room and injected me with 4mg of Zofran to stop the vomiting immediately. Zofran is also known to cause severe constipation. I took 4mg every OTHER day when I was pregnant and I probably had a BM every week and a half. Ugh, I know.. I walked out of the procedure room and right into the bathroom to throw up. Boss banged on the door and asked me to come out. So I finished and came back out to the reception area where in front of all the patients he injected me AGAIN with 4mg of Zofran in the other arm. He put an icepack on the back of my neck and I was still not doing well. He didn’t know why the Zofran didn’t work. He ran to the Subway a few shops down and bought 40oz of regular Coke for me. Omg. I drank it all and finally the throbbing headache and nausea ceased for the most part but that was almost 300 calories. All this sickness and what I have to do to be able to work, to see, to function is taking a huge toll on my diet. It almost doesn’t seem fair.
I felt crappy yesterday and drank a 12oz Coke Zero, which if you know me is my DRUG. I absolutely can’t stop. I feel super guilty.
I went to Sam’s Club yesterday and got some nice blender cups. I didn’t want the blender part but they’re nice cups. I made a pitcher of black tea and filled up 3x 40oz bottles with tea. I didn’t bring Coke Zero to work today. We’ll see if this makes it easier for me.
I haven’t worked out for about 2 weeks now due to feeling sickly and weak. I feel awful.
