For those of you of the MALE persuasion, and those of you who have delicate constitutions, you may want to look away.
You've been warned.
|A healthy choice, or weapon of mass destruction?|
I have noted, however, a couple of very unexpected...and unpleasant...side effects.
Egads. I wake up in the middle of the night with the most vile bile in my throat. You know the type. You try to cough it out, clear your throat, and all that happens is you spread that sour burning all over your insides until you truly think you're going to vomit.
This is starting to happen every night. While I'm no stranger to heartburn or to fractured sleep, having this attack of the burning vomits is something I was expecting.
2) Infections of the most delicate type.
I haven't had an attack of yeast, except for the one a few weeks ago, in years. Seriously. I've learned over the years what toilet paper, soap, and other body products to avoid. With the exception of the one before Christmas, brought on by extended use of cheap TP, I haven't had that "itch you can't scratch" in a very long time.
|In case you're wondering, this is the best T.P. to keep the yeasties away.|
Am I slowly becoming a bakery?
Add this relentless itch to my violent attack of winter skin on my neck and chest area, and I am basically too itchy to be in public.
So here I am, an itchy, yeasty mess, and the only real change I've made, since I was going to keep my resolutions simple this year, is the multi vitamin.
Is this a thing? Can multivitamins really do this to a person, or am I just a wussy wuss because I don't want to keep swallowing vitamins the size of my thumb?
The winter skin thing is something that's been sort of coming on for years, but I really have yet to pin point a solution. I sometimes think it's an allergy to something, but I have no idea what, since I don't use perfumed soaps or different shampoos. I've basically kept my beauty products to a minimum. I know hot water and shaving make it worse...so I've cut down on both. (And before you all go EWWWWWWWW, just try living with the upper half of your body on fire with an itch that simply won't go away. Live a day in my Gold Bond powdered skin, and then judge me.)
|Love the powdery skin you're in...and the sexy scent of medicated menthol.|
Yes, I know, that's what all fluffy couch dwellers say. But it might be a real thing for me.
So let's review: The multivitamin is giving me an attack of yeast and exercise is making my skin burn and itch.
Yes, my New Year resolutions are trying to kill me.
