I am not so happy today

I am not so happy today. No, it has nothing to do with the weather. The weather today is just a-okay despite being gloomy and having some dusting every now and then.

I am not so happy today. No, it is not about my class. Oh, did I already write about my class that I am taking recently? Oh yeah, remind me to write something about it next time because it is a new thing to me.

I am not so happy today. Because... I am on detox diet! My diet includes only liquid. I am only allowed to take beef/chicken broth, popsicle, coffee/tea without cream, kool aid, strained juices of apples and jello. Aside from that... I am advised to take 4 tablets of Dulcolax, 238 grams of Miralax mixed with 64 oz of Propel water. How fun is that?

I am on detox "clear liquid" diet because tomorrow... I am scheduled to do a COLONOSCOPY procedure. Sounds great! Not really. I wish I didn't know what I know now. But too late.

I learned from my Medical Terminology class that colon/o is a Latin word which means... colon or the large intestine. And scopy means a suffix that means... the process of visual examination using an instrument. Therefore... colonoSCOPY is the process of visual examination of the large intestine. Whew!

The only positive thing about this... I learned a lot from my class and I am a good student. Other than that... I am not so happy. I want some Chinese now!
