I rarely ever go to the doctor. When I have a cold, I medicate myself with over-the-counter meds.
Now, I love my family practitioner. He's fantastic. He treats you like a friend and confidant.
For the past eight days, I have been self medicating and nothing. With my "make believe" medical degree, I couldn't cure this sickness; so, I gave in and went to the doctor this morning.
I have been sick for eight days; so, I finally gave in. He told me that I have a stomach virus that's going around. Yuck! The word virus just sounds dirty. I have to stay away from sugar and spicy foods. Two of my favorite foods in the whole entire world. How will I deal?
Last night Fred told me to drink Gatorade because he said that I had lost electrolytes. Now, I hate Gatorade and Powerade. Needless to say, the doctor said that was the worst thing that I could have possibly done. I consumed all of those calories and sugar for NOTHING!!! Thanks, Dr. Fred.
So, I am stuck eating non-sugary things and things without spice. We'll see how long this lasts.
