When I was diagnosed with FM about five years ago, my doctor told me to avoid foods with saccharin, NutraSweet, MSG, etc. Well this past week, I have finally - and I mean finally - after much urging from friends and family, quit drinking diet soda. I was averaging a 2-liter bottle a day myself, alone. I have decided to only drink diet soda when I am outside the house (which isn't much these days because I'm too dang tired). Now...........if only I can quit this Vicodin addiction I've gotten myself all twisted up in!! UGH!!
