I’m planning to spend the rest of the weekend at home. No ifs and buts, just plain stating the facts.
A few days ago, I visited my doctor to check my throat. It’s a follow-up checkup for my condition which occurred last July. I had swollen salivary glands which lead to enlarged lymph nodes due to a blockage in my glands. The cause of it was varied. I had high dosage medication at that time and I thought I was in the brink of insanity due to those medications. Eventually, I got better (thank God!) and now I just had to follow it up with my doctor.
He said I need to stay away from the following: coffee, juice, tea, shakes, liquor, yogurt, and even milk. (oh, all the good things!) According to him, my acid reflux is developing and I need to be wary of my consumption of drinks and food (no chocolates and spicy food!)
I need to just drink water and water and plenty of those transparent stuff called water.
I’m in no position to oppose the doctor’s prescription. It’s just that it has been two days since I had coffee and I constantly have headaches because of it. Coffee jumpstarts my day and without it, I feel extremely drowsy. And when I feel drowsy in the morning, I will feel drowsy for the rest of the day. Thus, my headaches. I think its a withdrawal symptom of having caffeine in my system.
*sigh* I have to adjust to living without colorful drinks. At least this will make me drop a few pounds. Yay!/Nay!
Well, today, I had my ice cold coffee. I need to wash it down with three glasses of water right away.
