On Wed I had a doctor appointment. I had no idea what news I would walk away with. I thought I was prepared for anything that might be thrown my way. I was not prepared for this.. not at all.
I really do like this doctor. She is very nice, sympathetic, understanding, smart, very knowledgeable about her field. She also takes a very holistic approach to healing, one of the reasons I like her so much. The appointment was going well, and then... it happened.
I was given the worst news. I was no longer allowed to have CAFFEINE!! I mean really?? So I said to my doctor...
and she said
Does she know who she is dealing with here?
Goodbye (gasp chest pain) ch ch ch..... *Sob* chocolate .
You never think it's going to happen to you, you never think you will get this kind of news, you always think "this only happens to other people, not me, no never me". Alas, it has happened, and I am now going to have to be caffeine free.
I do have some time to wean myself off, as to avoid the horrid caffeine headaches (and my absolute bitchiness that would ensue). I am doing well. I have been coffee free since Wed, and have had only one monster and very few sodas.
I can do this.. I am drinking more water, working on this whole running thing... and trying to stay focused on the bigger picture.. a picture that apparently does not include a coke in my hand.
