This weekend was full of bad decisions. Friday night I went to a Halloween party with some coworkers dressed as Pebbles. I pulled it off pretty well. I need to get a bone for my hair though to make it a more accurate costumes. There was candy at the party and I decided to have some Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids. I hadn’t had processed sugar in almost two months, and I binged. After eating all of that candy, my stomach hurt and I felt a bit nauseated. It wasn’t a pleasant feeling.
My childhood friend got married this weekend. It’s an odd thing when you friends start getting married. It makes me feel old. I’m nowhere near ready to be married and settled down. The wedding was in Indiana so I drove about three hours to get there. The ceremony was nice. The reception included an open bar as well as a s’mores bar and a cigar bar. I started off the bad choices by having a few marshmallows lightly seared over the fire. They were so sweet and melted in my mouth. If I had stopped there with the bad decisions I would be ok. Instead I decided to have a glass of wine. It made my face feel warm and flushed almost immediately, but I didn’t feel buzzed after one so I figured I could have another. Three more glasses in and I was drunk.
I completed the bad decision trifecta by smoking part of a cigar and then having a cigarette. It had been three months without smoking but at the time it seemed like a good idea.
Every decision has consequences. This morning I woke up with a horrid hangover. I felt nauseated, and my head was killing me. My parents and I (they were there for the wedding as well) went to breakfast. I had an omelet with no cheese, mushrooms and spinach. I can’t equivocally say if I reacted to the eggs or not as I was so hungover and have basically been having hot flashes all day.
Luckily I was able to drive home. When I got home I basically slept all day. My hangover finally reduced to a manageable level at around 7:30 when I was able to make dinner and cook my lunch for tomorrow.
I don’t like the effects drinking has on me. I make bad decisions and am not myself. And afterward I feel sick, hungover, and depressed. Wine is not my friend.
