It's been almost two months since Sciatica changed my life! But I'm fighting back and getting stronger every day.
Since the day I got Sciatica I have not set foot inside a fast food restaurant or any restaurant except Denny's for that matter. I'm not a big fast food fan anyway, and I've been bringing my lunch to work for almost two months. But today I wanted to declare my independence from Sciatica and I braved the lunch-time world and lunch-hour traffic to drive to Jack in the Box as I was really craving one of their Tacos!
I ordered everything to go and got into my car to drive back to the office and realized just how greasy fast food smells! Oh my gosh, it almost made me sick smelling all that greasiness!! I honestly was having pangs of guilt (instead of pangs of hunger) at the thought of eating this and the calories and the cholesterol and the carbs!!!!!
Luckily for me my office is very well ventilated and I can hardly smell the greasiness as I enjoy my tacos and fries (which aren't bad, by the way). But it's funny that 30 or so years ago I wouldn't have felt guilty for eating this type of food. When is the last time you had fast food? Or are you a regular user?
