fasting and cranky

I'm fasting today. again. and it sucks. again.

clear liquids; tea, water, Gatorade, Jell-o (can not be red, blue or purple), bullion, Popsicle's or fruit juice with no pulp - such as apple, white grape and lemonade ... first off, I hate apple juice - always have, I think it is too sweet for me. White grape, same story. And lemonade, why oh why would I drink lemonade on an empty acid filled stomach. Ouch.

I don't care for Popsicles either ... the sweet thing again. Ditto on the Gatorade.

So it will be water, tea and Jell-O. Maybe some chicken bullion later ... but I don't know if I can stomach it.

I am cranky.

Not just because of the fasting, though it doesn't help, but because I have a raging migraine and usually I can rely on a saltine diet to help me ease the quease ... but not today. And while I can still take my migraine meds, I must sleep when I take them and AngelBaby is in fighting form today, plus I have to drink 8 ounces of water every hour on the hour ... so there is no rest for the wicked.

And ... do you really need more? ... I have to fast until my test at 4pm tomorrow. Seriously don't these people work in the morning? Did I mention that I could only eat a minimal diet yesterday? Really great stuff like cream of wheat and eggs - with no salt or pepper, thank you very much.

Ok, Ok, I am sure you are thrilled to hear all of this great stuff. TMI anyone? I could go further into detail but I would blush and even though you can't see me, I always imagine you can ... I'll only add that, of course I started my (.) today - what could make things more pleasant.

Wanna come visit me ... anyone ... anyone ...

So, you're fasting and cranky. Isn't it amazing that something new and possibly just as miserable or possibly wonderful has happened since your last post. Keep your chin up Frannie. Luv ya.

Hum.... we really are twins! I DETEST apple juice, always have, which tells you how well my mother pays attention as she told me the other day I loved the stuff! YECK!

Well I hope your test went well and the migraine was most likely exasperated by the lack of food, much fun!

Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you! Hugs and kisses- T
