The sickness

I think my immune system is taking a vacation this year. I spent all of last week in bed thinking I was dying. From Monday night until about Wednesday, I was vomiting at least once an hour; for the remainder of the week, I was struggling to stomach the soft foods and clear liquids everyone was telling me to keep in my system. By the weekend I had visibly lost weight. Six days later, car rides still make me nauseous and I can't eat large meals.

I guess this is my body's way of telling me that something needs to change. I've cut fast food completely out of my diet—which alone has done wonders—but I need to do more. It's definitely time to drop canned foods, microwave meals, and anything else that's packed with preservatives. If it doesn't rot, I probably shouldn't be eating it. Soda needs to go, too.

Last week may or may not have been a result of my sub-par diet, but it's time to make some serious changes regardless.
