NEVER google symptoms....

Seriously, don't do it. Don't do WebMD either. If you're anything like me, you'll determine that you have some seriously life threatening illness, start experiencing all the major symptoms, and have mild to moderate panic attacks......or maybe that's just me?

Last night I was hungry after dinner. I'm really trying to put the stop to after dinner eating, but I was hungry so I grabbed a plum. One bite and I spit it out and threw it away. It tasted awful! The taste was so bad, I was turned off of eating, so I drank a glass of water and went to bed. This morning, I grabbed my KIND bar and took a bite. YUCK! I seriously thought it had gone bad. Tossed that one and grabbed a fiber one yogurt. Again, I thought it was rancid. (At this point, any rational human would say, it's not the's you...but not me!) Next, I took a bite of fiber plus applesauce, normally a favorite. It tasted bad too. Then it hit me.....

For the rest of the day I've had a taste in my mouth that can only be described as hairspray. It's seriously disgusting. It's really bad during and after eating. So, I googled it. Bad move. I spent a lot of the morning thinking it was probably a brain tumor, diabetes, or some serious liver issue. Then I came across an interesting set of articles. Apparently, this can happen a day or so after eating some pine nuts. Seriously? Who knew?

Monday I had a grilled shrimp salad with pine nuts. It was yummy, I wanted another one. Or so I thought, anyway. Now, I feel like I just guzzled a bottle of aquanet. Bad news is, by most accounts it can last up to 10 days! Ew!

Good's a good diet tool......Hey, maybe I can market this....:)

In all seriousness, though, if it doesn't go away soon, I may have to make a call to the dreaded doctor.
