I’m Hungry…

I don’t know how I did this…

But I sure took a nose dive the next day. It’s been one week since my last chemo treatment and I’m slowly coming back to life. This week I’ve been sleepy, a little down, and obsessed with food. I can’t eat much of anything but it’s all I think about. I even dreamt that I was walking down a hillside covered with cupcakes and cookies. I reached down, grabbed a big cupcake with white fluffy frosting, and stuffed it in my mouth.

I watch a lot of food shows on television and I’ve grown very fond of Man vs. Food. Adam Richman is my new hero.

I want a banana split. I want Pepsi. I want hazelnut coffee. I want a pumpkin muffin. I want a $3.00 cupcake from the cupcake shop in Crystal Lake. I want a hamburger. I want Girl Scout cookies.

Yesterday my girlfriend asked me if I wanted to buy Girl Scout cookies. Hmm…let me think about that for a second. OF COURSE I want to buy Girl Scout cookies. She directed me to the Girl Scout cookie website where you can meet the cookies and, oh boy, did I meet them. I know everything there is to know about Thin Mints, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Samoas, Dulce De Leche and Tagalongs. (Such sophisticated names they have these days.) I even watched a little cookie video. As the cookies were rolling in and out of the screen telling me all the good things they do for Girl Scouts, I just wanted to grab them and shove them in my mouth. Lucky for them I couldn’t. They’re safe for the time being.

Cheese has been my friend these past days. I don’t know what I’d do without cheese. I discovered that if I put cream cheese and cheddar cheese in the microwave for 9 seconds, it’s like a slice of heaven. And yesterday I put them in the oven so that the cheese was bubbly and a little brown. Perfection.

So that’s been my week. Sleeping, eating cheese, dreaming of food, watching shows about food, obsessing about food. I think I’ve gone crazy. I truly think I’m losing my mind. But at least I’m heading out into the world today for a doctor appointment. Hopefully getting out of the house will give me something else to focus on besides food…

But until then, I think I’ll stalk those little cookies some more.

    Hi Cathy,
    Only YOU can describe food cravings so perfectly! I’m glad you have your appetite back and so happy you finally have finished chemo. Too bad it’s for a doctor appointment, but enjoy your day out!
