Re: [IP] "Give me Diet Coke or Give Me Death"
I no longer use aspartame either. I had used it ever since it came out and
had no problems. Then about 2 years ago, I was having more and more severe
headaches and problems concentrating. I went through my diet after other
things were ruled out, and once I took out aspartame, I was clear headed,
with no headaches. I waited a month, then tried a Diet Coke (my favorite
too) and had the worst headache. I did this a couple of times but had to
give it up. This totally traumatized me, since I really did not want to
and the arrival of aspartame was a huge deal to me when it came out -
drinking pop and appearing normal! Being a teenager was such fun :'P
A month ago I had diet gingerale at a party without thinking, and spent the
next day paying for it. I drink water, unsweetened iced tea (rare in BC
unless home-made - Starbuck's makes it in season aka when they remember and
it is really hot out) and tea. I use sugar in my tea and account for it.
