How My Brain Works
I have been taking this product for about three weeks now. I do think it is helping with the symptoms of menopause (chemically induced). Yay for that.
However, each time I pop a pill in my mouth (even though there are several pills being washed down my gullet simultaneously), I can taste the new supplement. It has a very unpleasant taste that I could not quite identify until yesterday.
But yesterday, when I yet again tossed the pill combo into my mouth, it hit me. These pills taste like...ok, this is gross now...
I don't even know if this thing still exists, but once upon a time, when I was a young mom, there was such a thing as blanket sleeper, which were footed, one piece zip up the front numbers, designed to keep your baby warm, when they inevitably kicked off their covers in the night.
The feet were made of a white plastic-y substance. Surely, they do not make these any more. Surely, they have improved children's sleepwear technology to include a friendlier footy substance??
Because that, my friends, is the taste/smell.
Small toddler feet that have sweated and baked in plastic all night long.
I know, right? (shudders)
(my lulu, who hated blanket sleepers and would doff them as soon after I had zipped her in, as possible. thus, the deer in the headlights look---busted!)
