Pushing Boundaries

Yesterday, for my final high dose day, I went a bit aggressive. I was overly ambitious, and I've been paying for it ever since. Instead of a 4-4-4 twice a day, I did 6-6-6. Last night, after ingesting the pills, I was so nauseous I could barely sleep. I tossed and turned for hours, until midnight when I went to the bathroom and dry heaved for a bit. I'm convinced that part of the issue is that I'm so sick of milk, it's truly causing me major problems. I'm SO HAPPY to be done with my artemisinin until after the MRI. Phew. I can now focus on eating healthy. Well, that is, as soon as I'm able to eat. My stomach is so messed up that everything makes me nauseous. I've been drinking pint after pint of water, and it has been helping to sooth my poor little body. I always have a tendency to overdo things. It's one of my worst traits. Like cookies, if one's good then five must be better - just like my pills. Ugh. I can't wait to feel better. It was so discouraging to see nice weather outside, and yet not be able to go for a walk or a run. Instead, I've been huddled up with my insides in knots. It was nice taking a long nap, and I'm hoping that tomorrow after more sleep, I'll be back to normal. I'm always pushin boundaries and this time I definitely blew it. Live and learn, I guess.


  1. Hey Milk Maiden,

    You might try this as it seems to work for us on the boat: take a large waterproof marker and write in GIANT numbers the date you bought the milk. Make the date bright and artful so you can't miss it! But I bet you never drink sour milk again. xo (I'm with Danny. I had to stop reading and go topside and take some deep breaths.)

  2. Hey Jess -
    Have you ever tried almond milk or coconut? Just a thought. Hope you feel better!
