De-tox

Well, I started a detox program yesterday and am I ever discombobulated today. I can't wake up, my brain won't work, I missed a deadline, I have a massive amount of work to do that I can't being myself to care about, and I have a headache, muscle tension and assorted aches and pains. I guess all the populations of bacteria that normally enjoy happy and productive lives in my body, demanding sugar, fat, and chemicals and receiving bounteous quantities of each, are all undergoing a terrible shock. Their crops have failed, their children are dying, their civilizations are crumbling, and therefore their world-- my body-- is in a state of upheaval. Well, not literally. Unlike my cat, I am not a puker. But I'm dizzy, grumpy, and sleepy and just want to sit in a dark room, in total solitude, glowering at nothing in particular. I just realized that last sentence contained several of the seven dwarves.

I couldn't sleep at all last night, despite not having had anything interesting to eat or drink all day yesterday.

I really, really want chocolate, but all my favorite foods are off the table for the next two weeks. However, I do have a box of Belgian chocolates that I bought on my business trip last week that I am hanging onto as a kind of reward for when the detox is done. Oh, go ahead and laugh. I know what you're thinking. But come on, you guys ought to know me by now. No mere two-week detox program will ever magically cure me of my chocolate addiction-- and nor should it! What I'm hoping for is that when the detox is over, I'll have regained a measure of self-control, and instead of devouring the whole box of chocolates in a single sitting, I'll be able to make it last three. Or two. Certainly not four.

Thank you for listening to me whine. I'll probably start feeling really good in a couple of days. The first three days are always hard.

Edit: Aaaand... my shoes hurt! They're incredibly cute, though. I guess I can't blame that on the detox.
