Sugar Tooth Ramble
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
I haven't been around much, because I went to visit my grandmother with my sister AMYLONGHORN. Grandma's birthday was on Sunday, and it was really great to see her and make her happy and really hard to see how she's declining and then leave her. My heart hurt so badly as we closed the door behind us the last time, knowing on the other side, she was sitting alone. Still quite hurts thinking about it.
I haven't gotten any exercise this week with the visit. Also, something somewhere on the trip really messed up my stomach and I'm still feeling the effects, worse than before. I left work early today because of it and spent the day on the couch, writing letters, drinking tea, and eating bananas, applesauce and toast.
The applesauce was unsweetened. I asked my husband to get it that way. He said there was only one brand of unsweetened, and he was nervous about it, but it is delicious. I'm not craving sugar the last couple days, but I'm also not craving much of anything at this time. I should go to a doctor, but trying to find one was maddening. All the GPs I called didn't have appointments until May. If I'm still feeling bad tomorrow, I guess I'll bite the bullet and go to an urgent care clinic.
I think Kristen had a valid point about the diet soda. I gave up pop for a couple weeks and then was back on the sauce. I do need to quit it. Maybe I should do it soon...but I don't wish to cut down until my stomach is back to normal, since I heard somewhere that cola does better than lemon-lime soda for your tummy because of the caramel coloring. But I do think this should be my next big tackle.
