Since I’ve stopped drinking soda (going on 2 weeks-ish), I’ve tried other things to pep me up during my night shift.
I’ve also tried cocaine… juuuust kidding!
Anyway, I’ve found the solution. Green Tea.
It tastes horrible. I hate the taste, but if I drink it with honey and have it when it’s a little less than hot, it’s tolerable to chug. It does give me energy and I do notice a suppression in my appetite.
Still no running for me, although I haven’t really tried. I think I will try tomorrow and start with a walk/run. I’m pretty dejected about the whole thing, but I’m trying to stay positive! I just need a definitive diagnosis, so hopefully one will be reached once I get some insurance. I can’t get my own private insurance because no one will insure me due to my Crohn’s. Lame.
