Preface: My MS is not nearly as bad as it could be. It’s mainly rough at night. At night I can’t stand the smell of anything savory. I can hardly get anything down. Last night half a PB&J was a struggle. During the day if I can stay un-hungry I make it through okay.
Here’s the current problem:
My sister’s birthday is next week and my dad wants to go to one of those Japanese Steakhouse’s where they cook in front of you.
Now the deal is, my dad doesn’t know yet. I was going to tell him this weekend, but I forgot about my sister’s birthday. So despite the fact that my sister is a jerk and I don’t like her, I don’t want to be that person who takes the spotlight on someone elses day. So it looks like my dad will wait to hear until we’re closer to nine weeks. Which is fine.
Except how am I supposed to sit through a japanese steakhouse like this? And it’s a bummer, because I LOVE japanese steak house. So much. Although I normally get scallops and I feel like maybe those are off limits now, I could still get other yummy things.
So what I’m thinking I might need to do is call my RE and see if he can prescribe something I can use short term just to get through even that one day, or through any really rough nights. I hadn’t really planned on taking anything because I think I have it pretty easy so far-it’s for sure manageable. But there’s no way it will be in a restaurant full of good smelling food (or, what used to be good smelling food).
Any ideas? What have you guys taken and has it worked? I’m really hopeful my RE will come through for me on this…
Also, my ear feels better today. Definitely not great, but on the mend….again. Hopefully for the LAST TIME.
