It’s that time again!
But as I’ve been feeling rough as sandpaper, it’s actually What I Eat When I’m Feeling S**t. Which rhymes. If you’ve got a stereotypically-bad Italian accent 🙂
I know why I felt ill; it was because of the supplements the therapist told me to take. She told me to take one more every night till I was at the full dose and although she warned me that some people have to take it much more slowly, being me, I ploughed on regardless.
I felt a bit rubbish Saturday evening, very rubbish on Sunday and hideous on Monday – I don’t know if I’ve ever felt that ill; banging headache, so weak I could barely walk, feeling sick all the time – it wasn’t good, especially because I’m editing this week.
I had this for breakfast on Monday, thanks to the last of the very late fruit on my dad’s raspberry bush:
And felt sick. So Tuesday’s breakfast was plainer:
Good old carrot cake porridge; it made me feel much better. I hadn’t been able to get hold of the nutritionist on Monday but as I couldn’t risk feeling like that again on a deadline Tuesday, I just stopped taking them, which she said yesterday was the right thing to do. Apparently the reason I felt so ill was because the supplements are doing their job and kicking out “nasties”, which were then wandering around making me feel cack 🙂
I could only just about stomach these for lunch on Monday:
And for dinner, I didn’t want anything but this:
It was weird because just after I’d eaten that (and was feeling too sick to eat anything else) I read Jemma’s post on wanting soup when you’re ill and Jessica’s comment that she only used to want Heinz tomato, which is what I had. Great minds 🙂
I also had a few of these:
Digestive biscuits are obviously plain enough not to cause sickness and they were comforting, weirdly.
The main evidence I wasn’t myself though was that I couldn’t finish a cup of tea or coffee at work, I didn’t want vegetables – and I couldn’t bear the thought of chocolate or nut butter. Mad. Even yesterday, when I felt better, I couldn’t want chocolate, however hard I tried! Teacher’s note for tonight, must try harder 🙂
I’ve still got a banging headache, so I’m going to wait till I feel completely better before I start the supplements again – and this time I’m taking it VERY slowly.
