So I tried ensure, it's okay.
I think I'm going to have my diet mostly consist of : water, Ensure, soy milk, juice, and V8 Splash.
And hopefully soon I'll have  a concotion of supplements to take with it so I can be healthier and not suffer any consequences of a mostly-liquid diet.

I'd like to have:
1) Activated charcoal (It removes poisons, drugs, heavy metals, and can help with stomach conditions and diarrhea)
2) Probiotics
3) A multivitamin
4) Peppermint capsules (enteric coated)
5) Fiber or PHGG
6) Omega-3s

If I liked tea, some chamomile tea and green tea and dandelion root teas could help.

I have some hope, now. But it ***** being like this. (Really they censor here? S-u-c-k-s is a bad word?)

Oh yeah! My reduced hospital bill is over $8,000. ******* great!

I checked out a Naturopathic doctor around here. Oh my god, he's perfect! If only I had insurance. He doesn't even cost that much, compared to the hospital, at least. He is everything I'm looking for in a doctor, I didn't think someone like him existed. I wish I could afford it...
Well, I'm voting for Obama. So hopefully we'll get universal healthcare.

I'm screwed.

Weight Loss



I'm thinking of basically quitting eating.
If I like ensure or boost or some similar nutritious "meal replacement" drink, that's what I'll be having from now on.
Hopefully it won't upset my stomach.
I don't know what I'll do about the weight loss...

I can't imagine what will happen if I don't get this problem treated soon.
What's going to happen if I run out of class? Will my professors be understanding? Patient? Will my grades suffer?

What about relationships?
How am I supposed to ever go on a date if I have to run to the bathroom, suddenly, every ten minutes?

And then a job. I have to attempt to get a job if I want temporary cash assistance. What employer will keep me? They'll think I'm shirking my duty.

I don't know, I can't stop thinking about how this is going to affect my life once the summer is over. Now, I can spend my days inside, close to a bathroom, with people to watch Cade if I rush off.
