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.
