Everything started to change as the day progressed. My taste buds were shot, whatever I drank or ate tasted like metal. I would not take the risk of adding to my nauseated state by pandering to the Magnesium; I opted not to drink any of it. Instead, I prayed.
Now this, WOW, this is when I reckoned my Doctor mentally interrupted:
Almost yelling, she said, “What are you doing? Have you been following our directions? You have to get this poison out of your body so you’ll be released tomorrow! Don’t you wanna get outta here? I don’t want to have to come in here on Thursday! I’d rather be at home with my family!”
AHA, GOT’CHA! Then I understood why she’d been so frustrated with my levels. “Today” is Tuesday, “tomorrow” is Wednesday and then “it’s” Thursday, Thanksgiving Day! But, didn’t she think that I too would rather be w/my family? Had she forgotten that I was on that beautiful island w/o my family and would still be there on Thanksgiving?
"Yeah, I'm sorry Doc that I may ruin your day of thanks 'cause I bought some Cancer at the corner store up yonder and then decided that I didn’t want it so I had to wait in a forever line at the customer service desk only to find out that returns ain't done on site which meant that I had to go to another store in the next county so I could “get my money back” but THEEEN, that store didn't have no cash there-it had to be sent from from a safe when needed!"
Yup, my mistake Doc, I apologize for making purchases based on the latest fads!
