It just couldn't be possible! Could it?
After a week or so of serious anxiety, an idea occurred to me. I had started taking a new multivitamin about the same time I began feeling "sick".
Could it really be that easy?
To my great relief, it was.
I stopped with the vitamins an voila!
They made a two-point shot, strait into the garbage!
Fast forward to two weeks ago.
Once again I decided to start taking a multivitamin. I chose a different brand, and hoped for the best.
The queasiness came back the first day!
Ugh! Could it really be so hard to add extra vitamins to my diet?
I had a new idea. I had been taking the vitamins in the morning, with breakfast. I changed to taking them at dinner. Maybe if I took them with more food I would be okay.
Guess what? It worked! No more pregnancy-like sick feeling. Hooray!
About a week into my new routine I was up late, unable to fall asleep - again! I needed to sleep. I needed to get up early. I had barely been able to stay away during the mid afternoon. Why couldn't I sleep now?
On a whim I headed toward the pantry. (Okay, it was probably more of a "search for a late night snack", but...)
While staring at the shelves, wishing for some zero-calorie chocolate to magically appear, I saw my vitamin bottle. Picking it up I read the following:
This product contains about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.
No wonder I couldn't sleep at night. I'd just taken a caffeine pill with dinner!
Now I've moved onto option number three, taking it with lunch. If this doesn't work I'm swearing off vitamins forever!
