We ordered in Chinese food last night and I had the beef in garlic sauce. In retrospect, this may not have been the best choice. I slept pretty badly last night and my lower digestion ended up just a little bit wonky.
At work, I decided to get something for lunch from the little cafe downstairs because it was really, really cold out (at least if you're wearing shorts, which I am for my knee) and I didn't have a lot of time for lunch. I foolishly ordered the lasagna, which didn't sit that well.
By the time it got to be 4 PM, I had reached the point where concentration wasn't going to be happening, so I talked to Doug and excused myself to go home. daisy_knotwise
made me a bowl of soup and a roll for dinner, which is sitting much better. I'm hoping that I'll get a good night's sleep tonight and be feeling better tomorrow.
Oh, and in regards to your comment on my post: I've switched over to Sudafed, which I'm not convinced is helping more than the other stuff. But I'm not convinced it's helping less, either. And a "take every 12 hours" ineffective pill is much better than a "take every 4 hours" ineffective pill, as I don't have to wake up to take it in the middle of the night. (Obviously they aren't completely ineffective if I'm bothering to take them; they just aren't helping much.) I'd started on the Sudafed but it wasn't doing much; that's why I asked my pharmacist for advice. But I should have known better - the fake pseudoephedrine stuff never works for me.
(And is it just me or is there something really funny about having a fake version of something that starts "pseudo" and thus is a fake itself? Maybe I'm just too tired.)
I'm assuming you were taking the Sudafed PE (for phenylephrine). If so, there are very, very few people it's actually effective on. There was a reason pseudoephedrine was developed - the phenylephrine (that hit the market first) didn't work!
And, no, I'm taking the Sudafed with real drugs in it. I was taking a Benadryl without real drugs in it (which is what the pharmacist recommended) for awhile before switching back. (I posted about all this in my LJ; I was just over here commenting on Bill and so I mentioned it to him. He'd noted that phenylephrine wasn't very useful to me earlier yesterday.) But thanks for the note! It's a shame that stupid laws get in the way of effective drugs. *sigh*
This wasn't excruciating pain sort of trouble; it was just mild queasiness that was keeping me distracted.
The reason I ask is that what set mine off the first two times was greasy, spicy food - fried chicken and fried rice.
And (to Dr. Bob's dismay) I make a lifestyle out of greasy, spicy food. :)
Of course, women go out all the time in miserable cold weather wearing skirts. But -- on the other hand -- the pantyhose have to cut the breeze at least a little bit. (I'm not saying "a lot"...)
And, besides, many women are insane in what they wear. *grin* But I don't think a skirt would suit you.
