Is this a sign? [Apr. 28th, 2006|09:32 am]

So you know how if you drink a soda right after chewing gum, it tastes funny? Yea. So I had gum in my mouth this morning and picked up a case of cherry coke at the grocery store. I got home, pitched out the gum, and opened up a can of cherry coke. And I noticed it tasted funny, but I figured it was the residual gum taste. So about 20 minutes go by, with me trying to space out the sips, and it's still tasting funny. Then I notice my vision getting a bit spotty, and my head, in the migrain spot, starting to hurt. I take another sip, it STILL tastest funny, and then I look at the can.

I accidentially picked up a case of "C2 coca cola" I blame this on the re-design of the cherry coke packaging, which is less destinct then ever.

So I've drank half a can, about 6 ounces, of C2. Which contains almost as much aspertame as diet coke.

I am going to take 3 aleve, go out and get REAL soda, before the light sensitivity kicks in. I am then going to lay down until people show up to help me pack. FUCK.

For those of you who don't know, I am near-allergic to Aspertame/NutraSweet. It causes severe severe migrains in me. It's not a fatal reaction, like cashews and fish can be, but it isn't what I needed to have happen two days before I move...

oh, gross...I can't stand aspartame, but actually being allergic to it sounds a million times worse. I hope you feel better soon! *hug*

You know the term "dream sign" used in lucid dreaming, to notice your dreaming?

As I was reading you description my brain started flagging "migraine sign". I'm glad it turned out to not actually be in my brain that time, but I hope the real sugar clears it up.

-Are you still going to be packing this evening? If yes, I'll come over. Do you need any packing supplies in particular?

Yes, I will, and yes, your company and assistance is more than welcome! The only packing supplys I can think of at the moment that I might need is more newspaper for wrapping breakables.

Thank You!

Bleah. Sorry to hear that. But...I completely understand getting thrown off by packaging. That's all it takes for me to never be able to find a product again.
