Yep, this little bitty pill is causing me so much trouble. It's my thyroid pill, that I have to take first thing in the morning, on and empty stomach. Okay, well first thing in the morning, I have trouble getting water down, but lately, I've been even more tight than usual in the morning. I have gotten stuck on this little pill 3 times in a week and thrown it up. But then, what do you do after that? I don't know if some of it may have gone down, I don't want to take another one. I wait for about 30 minutes before I give in and go throw up. It's frustrating and so...I'm more nervous than usual about taking the pill in the morning, which in turn leads to more tightness, you get the picture...it's frustrating. My doctor says to take the pill on an empty stomach and take it with plenty of water. Here is my compromise. I break the pill in half, take a tiny, tiny sip of water, I wait ten minutes, then take the other half, then wait ten more minutes, then drink a cup of warm water. If all that goes down, then I drink another cup of water and wait thirty minutes and have my coffee. It's really getting on my nerves. I take a few pills during the day, all of which are much bigger than that one, all of which don't present a problem for me. Oy!
My weekend went well, still no drinking. I have been having a delicious mocktail instead, I have sparkling water, lime and diet cranberry juice cocktail. It's refreshing and I have it in a fancy glass and don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. Still, my weight is hanging at the same spot. I would like to see some downward trending, but no such luck, yet.
Friday my son had a track meet and placed 1st in the 300 Hurdles and 3rd in the 110 Hurdles, it was very exciting, he gets his athletic abilities from...Hell, I don't know where? His Dad is the least athletic man on the planet and I am good at watching sporting events and eating at the concession stand, does that count for anything?
I hope you all have a great week and for those of you still fighting the cold, it's HOT down South and it's only gonna get worse, but it's beautiful, tomorrow I'll post some pics of my Hubby's fabulous flowers and shrubs, all a bloom!
