Quite possibly more than I can bear...
So I've shared a little bit of my struggles with depression, fatigue, mood swings, generally being a crazy person... and after we met Dr. Chapman who has like single handedly healed Baby Roo, Jeff and I really felt like I should talk to her about some of my "issues". Long and boring story short, my thyroid is a bit out of whack, I'm super-duper vitamin D deficient and my birth control pills may be doing more harm than good. I'm taking some vitamin D injection and drop therapy, getting off the pill (which was going to happen anyway as Jeff had the snip!) and then taking small steps from there. So with that said, lets get to the nitty-gritty.
Dr. Chapman suggested I do a 14 day body cleanse to get things started. I'm starting on Sunday and Hot Jeff is going to do it with me. We're excited about it (in a sick body cleanse sort of miserable way) but the crazy thing is she's making me go off Diet Coke. What??? Go off Diet Coke? "Um excuse me Dr. Chapman, did I hear you right?" Diet Coke is my life blood? I love that tangy little drink first thing in the morning with a little turkey bacon and toast. I love it in the afternoon when the kids are being feisty and wanting their Dad. I love it with dinner. I love it all the time. I know Dr. Chapman has been to medical school and has initials after her name but seriously? Does she really think its wise to take me off Diet Coke? Does she not value human life? Mine? Samuel and Emily's? The paper boy's? Here's a woman who has taken the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm yet she takes me off Diet Coke? It just doesn't make any sense. Well I mean besides that aspartame makes you grow a 3rd boob--that makes sense.
So here we go. As if I'm not crazy enough I'm going off Diet Coke (but not until Sunday). God help us all.
