Vitamins A, B, Eeewww and Yuck
My body is very sensitive to everything- from pain pills to vitamins to alcohol. I usually stay away from most of these things because I don't like how they make me feel. Well, this was the first time I had taken a fish oil vitamin. It didn't really occur to me that I should probably take the vitamins at separate times, especially since one of them was new to me. Approximately 2 minutes later I had this overwhelming sensation that I was going to throw up. I honestly thought the flu had suddenly hit me, it was that bad. Then it dawned on me that it was from the vitamins so I grabbed a few graham crackers and they helped to settle my stomach. Then about 5 minutes after that I started burping fish oil. It was DISGUSTING!
So there you have it. The truth behind my fear of vitamins. Now I am very hesitant to take my vitamins at all- I try to make sure that I take them separately and with my meals. The fish oil still makes me nervous although I took one yesterday by itself (with lunch) and it was ok. But apparently it is very healthy so I will keep trying to remember to take them daily. Or at least several times a week! Maybe I should just start eating the kid's gummy bear vitamins :)
