Since going to hospital for gallstones I’ve stopped drinking coffee. I used to be a three-five cup a day girl and I stopped cold turkey. After reading a list of things that can set off gallstone pain (chocolate, coffee, alcohol, all other delicious things) I chose a life of herbal tea over a life of potentially agonising pain.
And it’s not as bad as you think. Sure, ‘Be Charged’ herbal tea doesn’t have the same morning ooomph as a long black but I feel better, less anxious and I know that when I’m tired it’s because I’m tired, not because I’m coming down off a caffeine high.
I went to see a new doctor this week and he was possibly the loveliest doctor ever. Next stop is a referral to a surgeon so, as Dr Lovely says he can “get the damn things out.”
In other news – nothing. Tom and I have pottered around this weekend doing not a lot.
