I almost fell asleep in chemistry lecture this morning, and with several more classes to go I figured it was worth the risk of calling in the big guns. I stopped at the vending machine and bought a Pepsi. (It gave me two, for some unfathomable reason, and I handed off the second one to the guy behind me in line.)

I did stay awake through biology and physics. Boy howdy. But with one more class to go, I am now lying on the floor, shaking, clammy, and experiencing significant abdominal pain. This reminds me WHY I DON'T DO THAT KIND OF THING. Hey, CJ! Note to self! Sugar makes you crash and caffeine makes you hurt a lot!

*sigh* Will I ever learn?

To be fair, I can give myself credit for mostly having this lesson under my belt. This is my first soda in easily five years. Now I know that no, I did not mysteriously heal or transform my physiology during that period of time. I still need to avoid that stuff.

I poured the second half of it down the drain.

I ate. (I could eat another meal or two easily.) Want to hang onto my head and stab my ear with a needle?

Question: Does it make a difference if you have soda made with cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup? I find the latter gives me abdominal discomfort, but the former does not.

For me, it's the caffeine causing abdominal discomfort. I seriously can't touch that stuff. I don't know whether cane sugar versus HFCS would make a difference in my sugar crash.

Ugh! Well, now you know. It was probably worth the experiment, just for the reminder! *hugs*, and I hope you're feeling much better by now.

Yes - now I know. Knowing is good. And yes, I'm completely over the effects now! It only takes three or four hours (or some powerful painkillers) and some food. Could be a whole lot worse. :)

Sorry it didn't work so well. Just doing some catch up-missed out on Japan I think.
