I have been living on bread, pretzels, dry cereal, and jello for two weeks now. Two miserable weeks. For someone who really loves food its been pretty miserable to subside on things with little to no flavor and eating has become the biggest chore which has meant that I'm constantly hungry and nauseous.
Another weird combination.
And forcing myself to eat constantly all. day. long. Just to have something in my belly.
We had a breakthrough.
I came home from work and took a quick nap before a haircut appointment. I ate my obligatory piece of toast so I wouldn't wake up super nauseous. But instead I woke up 20 minutes before my appointment CRAVING something.
Praise God for a craving!!!
A Subway sandwich.
Not just any sammich.
Turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and onions. And mustard. LOTS of mustard.
Now ask me to eat anything else in the entire world and I'll likely turn green and throw up on your feet.
But something about this sandwich.
But I couldn't go get it because I had to get to my appointment. Which basically had me in tears over the thought of having to wait two more hours to eat the one thing in the world that sounded good!
But I made it. The two hours.
And ordered my footlong and ate half of it in the car before leaving the parking lot and was practically crying tears of joy over the fact that I had real food in my belly!
Two hours later I finished the other half.
And the nausea returned, full force, but let me just say, if I'd had another six inch in the house I might have eaten it despite the nausea.
This morning, the minute Subway opened I ordered another footlong. And ate half again. The exact same sandwich. I've got the other half for later and honestly, I'm going to get another footlong to just have around the house and to have something for breakfast in the morning. Yep a turkey sub for breakfast.
Don't ask me to eat the same sandwich but homemade. That sounds gross. Weird, I know. Don't ask me to eat pizza, the chocolate cupcakes in the break room, a steak, anything else. I can't do it. Literally the thought of any other food in the entire world makes my stomach churn but not this sandwich. And I've literally never been more grateful for a sandwich in all my life!
All Hail Subway's turkey sammich!!! :P
