sick

dr: so do you usually have a runny nose?
me: um...pretty much.
dr: and what side do you sleep on?
me: i start out on my back...
dr: but then end up on your stomach.
me: i do!
dr: and when you wake up you always have to blow your nose a lot.
me: yeah! how'd you know that?!
dr: because you have acid reflux. the acid in your stomach, as it is making it's way through your esophagus, is making your body produce excess amounts of mucus, which is why you are always getting bronchitis.
me: ew.
dr: don't even try to sleep on your back anymore, it's making things worse. you're rolling onto your stomach because you have a hard time breathing that way anyhow. oh, and no more chocolate.
me: i don't like chocolate. that's easy.
dr: no more spicy foods.
me: sad!
dr: no more alcohol
me: um, yeah. that's not gonna happen.

so anyway, i'm on a new restricted diet. or i'm attempting a restricted diet. it's not making me happy and it just started yesterday!

If I was a doctor, I would mess with people and say I know their symptoms/tendencies because I installed a camera in the person's room. Which would be funny until I joked with the wrong person and got fired.

Anyway, good luck with your diet.

Aww. Poor little Jazz.

If *I* was a doctor, I'd tell all pretty girls that lower cut shirts would help with any and all symptoms. And that is probably why I never became a doctor. That and politics.

Damn politics.

Wow. Your doctor is smart. Good luck with the diet. I hate avoiding spicy foods, and always end up getting the Extra Hot flavour a Nando's anyway. I mean, who orders Lemon and Herb? Really, who?
