nothing new to say

I feel like shit.

Principally because I ran out of vitamin pills on Saturday and only got some more this morning. Going without them for too long does extremely bad things to me. I get depressed and my allergies go haywire. I don't know why. I swear it's not psychosomatic.

I also have a very bad sense of anticlimax about going away, and I haven't even gone yet. Just this litany of "oh, we're only going for 4 days, why are we even bothering to go?". And also "you remember what it was like trying to find _vegetarian_ food in Brussels... vegan'll be even worse"*. Yes, I _am_ anticipating living on falafel & chips for 4 days, why do you ask? Heh... no... I've got information about a place called La Saga which is apparently a vegan paradise, with amazing dairy-free desserts, and a few others. (Will post links when I've fixed my LJ so HTML doesn't garble hideously.) The only problem is that most of them don't open on Sundays or Mondays, and we'll be there from Saturday round to Tuesday.

* I stopped eating egg a few weeks-months ago because I realised it was making me ill. Since then, my IBS has improved to the stage where I can actually eat vegetables in sensible quantities again, including small amounts of salad!! Frankly, if the choice is egg & bad stomach, vs no egg, a non-bad stomach and all the vegetables that were previously trigger foods, there's no contest.
