I’ve got myself a problem. It is manageable, but it really sucks though. When I was a kid, I loved drinking soda (I normally call it ‘pop’) and I use to drink Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew like it was nothing. I still drink Dr. Pepper but Mountain Dew is too much. When I was a kid and this was introduced I thought it was amazing! I still do! So where’s my confession? Well I can only have one of these probably once or twice a year. It drives my stomach wild and I crave it a lot after I’ve had just one sip. It literally sucks when I see my dad get one and I can’t drink it.
When I was having my surgeries, and I think it was after my first surgery. After I was healing, my dad got me one and I had a few gulps of it and the next thing we knew about half of it was on my bed and the floor and it didn’t come out of the bottle. I had thrown it back up. I didn’t understand why all of a sudden my stomach was reacting this way after I’ve had countless times before. I even had chips and salsa in the evenings and that never made me sick to my stomach like that did. After I came home, two other of my favorites that I had a lot while and before my surgeries. Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and eggs use to do serious damage to my stomach. I would throw them back up after a few bites. My body would explode! It was really weird.
I can eat Chef Boyardee Spaghetti again. I actually had that last night for supper and no stomache. Then this morning my dad came home for lunch and he said he had a surprise for me and he said he got me a Code Red Mountain Dew. I instantly got excited because I hadn’t had one for a while. I’ve only taken a few sips of it and I’m starting to feel a stomache coming along. It’s not intense anymore these days. Thank god for that too. I do freak myself out though thinking it could happen when I’m not even thinking about it and I’m hoping that’s not the case this time around. I would much rather get hyper than feel sick to my stomach drinking Mountain Dew. I have never tasted the other flavors either. I’m too afraid to. I am so too scared to try Monster or Vault energy drinks because of all that caffeine. I now drink the knock off Mountain Dew and thankfully it doesn’t mess with my stomach. Well I’m going to enjoy the rest of my drink and switch back to my alternative.
