I currently have this wicked gag reflex. Ever since I had the flu two weeks ago, I am finding it difficult to eat. I mean, my throat doesn’t hurt. My stomach doesn’t hurt. The food smells good and I want to eat it. I just eat a few bites and I feel full. It could be the fact that I am up often at night coughing or blowing my nose. It could be that all I want to do is sleep. Or it could be that from four days of the flu I dropped thirteen pounds, seven of which I still need to gain back. Or maybe it was the meds they (docs) put me on. Who knows.
All I know is I LOVE FOOD AND I CAN BARELY EAT IT RIGHT NOW. For someone who is a food addict (me), this is sheer torture. Totally. Like, to the max.
