Well, I wasn't exactly bitten by a radioactive spider, or infected by a giant Gamma Ray, but I did take a giant radioactive horse pill this morning. I wanted to take the vile it came in home, but they wouldn't let me. Something about it being......well....radioactive. And no, I don't glow in the dark.
The thing is I don't feel so super right now. They said there is a small chance of side effect, sore throat being one of them. The other? Racing heart and heat intolerance. Yeah, I already had that. I thought that was why I was doing this thing to begin with. I guess the radiology department didn't get the memo that I have record breaking hormone levels in my thyroid.
No, I feel sick. Nauseous. I have a hunch that it has something to do with the fact that I had to fast (no food, or drink) before my little "procedure." And for the past week, I've been on a very special "iodine-free" diet, in which I basically only got to eat fruits and veggies. Add that to the fact that my symptoms have returned with a vengeance (namely metabolism in hyper drive) and I feel like I am starving to death.
And anyone who knows me well, knows how important food is to me. My all time favorite past time is eating. And not just for sport either. Me and not eating don't go well together. You see, for years (probably ever since I first got pregnant with KJ) I get nauseous if I have an empty stomach. Fast Sunday for me, usually means skipping breakfast. I can only stand to skip one meal. Anything beyond not eating for more than an hour or so, and the slight queasiness, turns into full fledged nausea. I mean dry heaving (because there's nothing in my stomach to throw up) nausea. Then comes the headaches, dizziness, irritability. Then my emotions come into play, and I'm bawling like a baby for no reason.
At this point, I'm really hoping to die, and be put out of my misery.
I actually was allowed to eat at 3:00. But, you go that long feeling that miserable and your appetite goes out the window. So, I drank a bottle of water, ate some snap peas, and called it good.
I'd really like to eat some pasta (I brought some to cook) but they aren't going to allow me to eat "normal" food again for 24 hours.
I really might starve to death before tomorrow. And if I don't starve to death, I just might die of boredom.
Entertain me, please?
