I couldn’t figure out why on earth I was having headaches every day—EVERYDAY—for about a week and a half. On Wednesday of last week it got so bad that I couldn’t focus on what the kids were saying, I had the classroom lights off (plenty of sunlight coming in through the windows, but no fluorescent glare), and thought that I was going to vomit. REALIZE THAT I’M NOT A PERSON WHO GETS HEADACHES, MIGRANES, NOTHING! So this was not a familiar event for me.
Who could say what divine intervention brought it into my brain, but on Thursday I had a thought that the previously no new detergents, no new foods, no new schedule changes, no new anything lately mantra was completely wrong!! As I finished up my coffee for the day, I realized that I have had something new in my diet within the past two weeks. I’ve been putting Splenda in my coffee for two weeks straight.
It is now Sunday, and I’ve been Splenda-free for three full days. The headaches are not completely gone, but they are hugely diminished…there also have been no spikes at midmorning and midafternoon of pain. Go figure…it looks like I’ll be sticking to my standby of coffee, honey and soymilk.
Stay compliant, and be well…I don’t know what I was thinking!!
BTW--I'm going to be replying to the recent mails asap...promise...
