I get a little nauseous but only in the morning. At first I thought maybe it was due to an empty stomach. That's a pretty easy fix, instead of waiting until I'm hungry to eat (which is what usually happens), I've been eating toast right away. Toast with peanut butter, you know, for the protein. I also have a cup of coffee every morning because I like it. Okay, okay, I'm hopelessly addicted. I know I'm not alone, you coffee drinking readers you.
Here's where the Oh Noes come in. I think it might be the coffee. Panic inducing, isn't it?? Well, not really. An adverse reaction to caffeine is, unfortunately, one of the more common side effects of chemo and radiation. So this wasn't unexpected. I've been cutting down on the coffee, and I'm at about half of one of my mugs, so maybe 8 oz? If I can find my freaking teapot, I think a switch to tea wouldn't be such a horrible tragedy. It's probably cheaper than coffee. Drinking tea would cut my sugar consumption by a lot (I like my coffee sweet, all right! Quit raggin' on me, man).
But coffee is tasty, and I might hang on for a few more days and see if it's really the coffee. It would be a shame to quit too hastily, right? On the bright side, I do enjoy tea. Green tea is supposed to be healthy.
Sigh. Maybe I'll go look for my teapot.
