As I'm sure you can understand, my initial thought was that it was migraine related. I'm pretty textbook in that whole nausea/vomiting with migraines department.
But this is different. When I have a migraine, food is the furthest thing from my mind. Although I had a low level migraine yesterday, I felt hungry for dinner. Unfortunately, I also felt completely grossed out by food.
My wonderful hubby grilled a pile of chicken and burgers on Sunday evening, leaving us lots of yummy leftovers for the week. I shredded one of the grilled chicken breasts and made a Chipotle-style burrito (minus the rice) by piling the chicken, a scoop of black bean chili, shredded cheese and salsa in a flour tortilla. Sounds yummy right?
I thought so, too, until I started eating it. I ate a few bites, then started feeling like I was going to be sick. This feeling is eerily reminiscent of how I felt when I was taking Topamax. It's really that bad.
The only thing I can assume is that this is a lingering side effect of the severe bout of depression. Hopefully it will pass as I continue to recover.
