Zap Zap Zap

Session 3 is in the books. I had to wait today with a few other folks because they were running behind, but oddly it didn't seem to cause me any harm. Once I was taken into the room, I asked the staff to mix it up a little, so they put me in a bowl and put me in a giant microwave on high for 2 minutes. Next time I'm requesting one of those splash guards...

Ok, not really.

As was the case yesterday, the treatment itself took around 5 minutes to complete. Using yesterday and today as a measure, I seem to not suffer any noticeable short-term effects just after treatment. Instead, I have a perpetually upset stomach and increased tiredness regardless of the time.

I just added a TV and Movies category to my page in preparation for the slew of movie reviews that will likely be forthcoming. Tonight, a will be sampling Pride and Prejudice, which hopefully will not contain any flashy CGI work. Hehe.

You know I've been thinking about the proposed miso solution to the radiation sickness, and you're new aversion to miso.

I've seen this before with about all of my friends who drink. Whatever beverage they get sick on, it is forever earmarked in their brains as making them really sick, the very smell or thought makes their stomachs turn. Although my friends know it wasn't that drink specifically but the excess, it still happens.

Before radiation except for one day, you never ate miso. You started eating it about the same time you started getting zapped.

Ta-da brain makes the association: miso=sickness. So, even if it is supposed to help you, sounds like you ought to quit because there is no point if you've installed the hard-wiring of miso=Danger! Danger! Will Robinson.

That is possible. It happened to me when I was taking a new med as well. Mom made some lemon chicken skewers, which ordinarily would have been perfectly acceptable, but which I could not handle at all. It was also a new flavor.

I am pretty confident that once the nausea fades, I will be ok to eat miso again, so I suppose I will have to use it as a post-treatment solution.

Oh, and I assume you are saying that I should drink excessively. I don't know if we have much in the house, so I will start with rubbing alcohol. Thanks for the tip!
