Green Vomitus

One of the 'things' I'm supposed to be doing is using green powder. What is green powder? Basically every vegetable no sane child would ever eat, dried and ground into a fine silt.

It tastes like ass. One infected with C. Diff.

Most raw foodies mix it in with their veggie/fruit juice, using the sweetness of the fruit to mask the taste. Other folks dump this stuff into smoothies.

Since I am trying to limit sugar consumption, I mixed it in with my tea.

Which is a pretty terrible way to consume the stuff.

(How is the health benefit of this stuff affected by the level of sugar required to make it palatable? Inquiring minds wonder.)

So, lucky me, I started throwing it right back up the other day. My body had had enough ass thank-you-very-much. I tried to catch it in my hands and ended up sliming my face up to the eyebrow and leaving a spray pattern across the kitchen wall.

When I say it tastes like ass, I really mean it. I don't know that I've ever had such a strong reaction to a 'food'.

In fact, I would rather lick my dog's ass than ingest this stuff.

Instead I mixed it into yogurt and that was moderately better.

Of course, I still haven't stopped gagging when I eat actual vegetables now. This swamp mold is ruining real food even.

On the sick front, I wanted to go to the doctor today and get antibiotics, but now I feel guilty. What if I don't need them and instead contribute to the rise of flesh eating bacteria everywhere? I read a magazine article Sunday on how we're killing ourselves with antibiotics, and it was sufficiently scary enough that now I think I'll wait a few more days.

Maybe my miracle will come, right?

As for steroids, tried 5mg and nothing. I only got 4 hours of sleep, though, which did not help. 10mg got me moving finally, but it wasn't great. I hope this bug leaves me alone soon.

I'll do 5mg today and try to step down.

  1. Green powder sounds pretty nasty all on its own, but with the added benefit of your description, well, not high on my "things to try list". Someone once suggested feverfew for my migraines. Yes, also up on the things never to put in your mouth list. A few notches below valerian root. Sounds like green powder blows those away. :(

  2. maybe you can get green powder in capsules? also, try olive leaf capsules next time you're sick (cold, general shitty feeling) helps with everything! I use it when nothing else works.
