I've been putting it off.

I have That Test tomorrow. Sitting in the fridge are two bottles of 'stuff'. How do you find the motivation to drink something that you know will: A) Taste so bad you might end up vomiting; B)Cause you to spend all night in the bathroom; C)and to add insult to injury requires a 5am start tomorrow morning to do it all over again?

10 minutes later.

It was bad. But not that bad. I was finding it hard at first because my throat kept feeling like it was just going to close. ..I had a taste. It was awful. I quickly developed a technique- 4 teaspoons of the liquid, which was small enough to be 'downed in a one-er' as we say in my neck of the woods, to which a hefty squeeze of lemon juice was added. There was 90 mls. That was 90mls too much, but still. Now I just nee dto drink 2L of water and hang around the bathroom. Oh Joy.

The only problem I foresee at the minute is that I am feeling quite sick. It really
will add insult to injury if it all comes back up after I went to the effort of getting it down.


  1. If this is what I understand this is, I wholeheartly sympathise: this is NASTY stuff. And all my thoughts to you for the exam.

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry. My sister had colon cancer and had to do this every three weeks for awhile. Her last six month check-up, she just burst into tears and said she couldn't anymore - and I don't blame her. They let her skip it -- she's been cancer-free now for two years, and at this point, she just says she needs a break.

    Hang in there...

  3. I'm really lucky in that there isn't anything as bad as cancer suspected. But I can understand the not being able to take it anymore.Best wishes to your sister from a total stranger!
