I don't know why, but I have been constantly nauseated for a couple of months now. Recently I started throwing up again. I average 5-6 times a week, although on a bad day, it'll happen twice in one day (usually breakfast and dinner). My local doctor has tested my pancreas and liver, and just today an abdominal ultrasound (liver, kidneys, spleen, gallbladder, pancreas) was totally normal. No one can account for the nausea and vomiting. I'm just lucky that way.
Let me just get this out of the way: I'm not pregnant. But I'll tell you right now, the memories have come rushing back. I don't really love re-living various vomiting episodes and related medical care. I'm ready to move on! Kate is seven months old, for heaven's sake! My body can't seem to get with the program.
So tonight, when I threw up my chicken-and-fruit salad from Village Inn, and I was reminded of how much I loathe vomiting lettuce, I started compiling a list of things that are really nasty when regurgitated. Certainly this a list that ought to be made public. It will doubtless bless the hearts and minds--yes, even the very lives--of my dear readers and my substantial posterity. And so I give you:
Heidi's Top Ten Nastiest Things to Throw Up
9. Taco Soup
7. Red Robin's Whiskey River BBQ Chicken Wrap
Did I miss anything?
I have to say that mint chocolate chip ice cream is probably the most pleasant thing to throw up (especially if recently consumed), but I don't intend to make that kind of Top Ten list. That would just be gross.
