Could My Love Really Be Turning Against Me?!

I remember too well the day we met, almost thirteen years ago, a cool morning, the sun high in the cloudless New York City sky. We were introduced by, of all people, an Ayurvedic doctor that I had only met 30 minutes before. He said we would be good for each other.

At first I was apprehensive, starting off this new relationship. Although we never met before, I was aware of them and my preconceptions were not positive. I assumed them to be, well, for lack of a better word, “bitter”. My doctor assured me that was not the case at all. And when we met for the first time, I was truly pleasantly surprised. They were, well, sweet. A little cold but I was assured that they could be warm. I grew fond of them in a way I never imagined I could ever. I loved their smell. Of all things. Their smell.

We have a relationship that is close, but the last four times we got together, they made me, well for lack of a better word again, sick. Literally nauseous. When I was finished with our last rendezvous,  I barely could finish our time together. I felt to throw up.

I tried to think of why this sudden change. We were always good together, but something changed and I wonder now if I need to end this relationship. It would be hard because I literally love them. But my body is telling something is not right.

So now that my love has turned my stomach, it looks like regrettably I will have to give up my regular Starbucks’ lattes.

  1. So, so sad…I do really well with not drinking caffeinated beverages.. but occasionally I will go for a bottle of Starbucks’ Mocha Frappuccino. I don’t like the store version. Just from the grocery store. Coffee is a big no-no for me anyway. It messes with the rhythm of my heart. *sigh* Have you tried a different flavor like mocha or caramel? Or do you think all coffee drinks will have this effect on you? I’d hate to see you go without your Love. =o) I hope you feel better though.

  2. You had my interest all the way to the end! Who/what were you giving up? Since I’m heading to surgery and weeks of PT – looks like I will be giving up some sugar and caffeine so I am in good shape for the surgery.
