So I watch my diet, I drink very little booze... but I screwed up. That's right this time it's all my fault. I had a inkling that either sugar or caffeine irritated the condition. I was leaning towards caffeine, but I've spoken to a couple of people who say it's the sugar. Anyway, so for the last 3 months or so I've had 3 or 4 cups of coffee w/ flavored cream (read as sugar milk) each morning, followed that with countless glasses of sweetened ice tea, and more recently, topped off with a bottle or two of citrus beer each night. Not to mention the soda I let myself indulge in on game days. And all the water that I was drinking at work? Well, no job means no water, not that we don't have water, just that I haven't trained myself to drink it at home. So I know exactly where this attack is coming from.
Only I didn't have the foresight to see what I was doing. I'm hoping the doctor will tell me if it's the caffeine or the sugar, or if it's both. Then I'll have a better idea of what needs to go. I'll give you the details when I get back.
