It is okay to have burger rings for breakfast

…every now and then anyways.

Woke up feeling shi* this morning with a splitting headache… my mouth has been super dry lately and I suspect it had something to do with the Asthma Preventative Inhalers I take… I do rinse my mouth out after each use.. but I still managed to get something called Oral Thrush 😦 thus is basically a fungal infection of the mouth which causes your tongue and maybe the side of your cheeks to become white and patch.. and for me … it’s hard to swallow and in addition to that I have several mouth ulcers…

I don’t think I’ve been taking care of myself as well as I should… it’s hard. We are in the middle of a pandemic and in stage four lock down in Melbourne… I have to follow by the rules.. and that means only been able to eat and drink during designated break times… which often ai will skip if it is too busy. Stress sucks :(.

But anyways, I digress. So I was feeling shi* this morning and because I woke up several times in the night.. I slept in till about 11am? My mouth was super dry and I was always thirsty, even though I drank water! My appetite wasn’t there anymore… I just craved something soft and tasty. I looked in my cupboard.. and ALAS. The Burger Rings which I got on sale for $1 at Woolies.

Should I? It’s breakfast for goodness sake…. screw if. Imma adult now and if I want to have Burger rings for breakfast .. I am going to have it. For those who might not know, Burger Rings are these ring shaped (clearly) orange/brownish delicious snacks packed with Burger Flavour (whatever that is). They are sooo addictive and tasty. I demolished a whole bag 🤣🙃. Guilty pleasure. Yup. Did it hurt my ulcers? Yup. Was it good for me? Nope. Do you think I would do it again?. Yup. But everything in moderation and I don’t have any left anyways..

Anyways, I better sleep.. big day tomorrow ..training is over and the real Residency starts. Wish me luck and also please remind me to buy some oral anti fungal drops…!

P.S. cover photo is of the Japanese Curry I cooked today which I will eat for the next few days 🤣🤣🤣

Love-Hate Relationship with Caffeine

I couldn’t sleep yesterday night…not sure if it was because I ate some pizza with cheese (and being lactose-intolerant) or if it was because I drank a matcha latte drink at night.

My tolerance for caffeine has been really really low lately! Without the early starts in the morning for work I rarely drink a cup of tea any more…usually drinking tea at night is fine for me…but I was super hyped up and full of energy until 2am at night… I stayed up reading Webtoons as I was too alert…yet also anxious because I need to work tomorrow..! The more I tried telling myself I need to go to sleep NOW…the more alert and anxious I became..sigh

Woke up groggy in the morning…with a bit of headache… I made a cup of coffee to prepare me for the long drive to work..Don’t want to fall asleep especially on the expressway and PLUS it’s raining.

Why does caffeine both make me tired and then make me alert? I am so addicted and so dependent on it… 😦

My stomach hurts..not sure if its from the coffee or from the pizza from last night.. 😦

Caffeine is both friend AND foe.
