The winds shifted, which means a respite from the smoke that's been plaguing the valley. I very much needed this, because I have been taking way too much Alka-Seltzer and Pepto-Bismol in a futile attempt to make myself feel better. Holy crap I wish I knew why some smells... including smoke, incense, and various perfumes... cause me to instantly end up with gut-splitting cramps.
It's like when I mix soda and ice cream... instant gastrointestinal agony. Just the idea of eating a root beer float is enough to make me feel sick.
I also run into problems if I fly on an empty stomach (queasiness).
Or scuba-dive after eating sweets (headache).
Or eat peanuts too close to bedtime (heartburn).
And, as I get older, I'm finding more and more crazy shit that causes my body to revolt. I suppose that's just a natural part of aging, but it still pisses me off. Mostly because I can never seem to remember what it is that causes problems, so I'm forever repeating the same mistakes.
I'd give up, but I'm just too old and stubborn.

strong smells with give me headaches or stomach issues. always have. i was well over 30 before i realized not everyone was the same way and that tums were my new best friend.
also, sweets without a nourishing meal first are kinda the same way. (crying that i can’t do donuts for breakfast without a tums chaser.)
I’m glad the winds changed and you get a little break from breathing in the smoke.
I think I’ve found the problem with peanuts too close to bedtime. It’s the peanuts. Evil things. Put on this earth as a punishment as far as I can tell.
The smell of anything that smells like anesthesia makes me ill. Not puking ill, but enough to make me feel uncomfortable in a major way.
I would be sad if root beer floats made me sick.
My body is old too. Sometimes cheese makes my body revolt and that’s a sad, sad night of feeling like I might die.
