Oww

My stomach hurts.  Have I mentioned that my stomach hurts a lot.  I think that it might be from carbonation, maybe it’s from caffieine.  It’s definitely caused by artifical sweeteners and stress though.  So, I know I can’t help the stress part, but a normal person would lay of the artificial sweeteners.  But not smarty pants here.  I got into work today early to work on a project.  I had gone to an event last night where some large glasses of wine were consumed so I wasn’t exactly feeling my best.  So, I went to the fridge and got a diet coke.  I don’t know if that was the culprit or what.  I didn’t drink the whole can.  It took me virtually all day to drink 3/4ths of it.  I know I should write down what I eat and when it hurts, but that seems too difficult.  I purposefully didn’t drink any soda (although I did have tea) yesterday and it didn’t hurt.  I just don’t understand how, after drinking soda habitually for so many years, it suddenly is causing me so much gastric distress.  I mean, I’ve always had stomach aches.  It’s nothing new.  Because I’m an internet hypochondriac, I started googling IBS symptoms.  I fit the mold.  Mainly, bloating, gas and feeling better once I go to the bathroom.  But then again, I also thought I had hypothyroidism last week and my thyroid is tip top.

I’m supposed to go to kickball in ten minutes.  I’m not really sure how that’s going to work considering I have to make a dash to the toilet every two minutes.  Fun times in the life of Lee.
