(Lack of) Popsicles cause Lupus

Last night was a lesson in selective hearing. At least I think it was. I may not have heard that right.

Faith was very needy yesterday. She wanted, no, make that she needed me right beside her all day. Between the meltdowns and the “hold me”s, I was mentally worn out. When she fell asleep all I could feel was a pounding in my head and a ringing in my ears.

Did I mention my CellCept dosage was increased. Again? It makes me feel really yucky.

Bzzzzzz. Thud. Bzzzzz. Thud.

That was about it.

Hubby had been waiting pretty patiently for Faith to go to sleep so we could have grown up conversation. You know, the kind that doesn’t involve Dora or Scooby-Doo. Unless you are into that kinda thing. MommyRambles is not here to judge.

Anywho, I walked into the kitchen where hubby was eating a banana popsicle. I must have made a disgusted face because he informed me “Banana popsicles are good!”

“No, they are not, they are yucky. I have never liked banana popsicles. They make me gag.”

“Have you ever really tried one? You didn’t eat banana popsicles as a kid?

(at this point the thump in my head and the buzzing noise started up again. I know he kept talking, and it might have even been important, but I didn’t hear it. Fade back in…)

“….and I’m pretty sure that was what caused….”

(Fade back out)

Buzzzz. Thump. Buzz. Thump.

(Fade back in)

“….Lupus. I’m sorry you are feeling so sick.”

Due to the selective hearing my overworked ears were implementing and the pounding in my head from the CellCept, what I got out of that whole conversation was:

Failure to eat banana popsicles as a child causes Lupus.

There you have it.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one whose selective hearing has led to some pretty interesting realizations.

    I think that’s a good assessment. I mean they are disgusting, I guess I’m next? But I am very good at selective hearing which usually ends in me mad at BF cuz he said something wrong when really I was selectively listening lol

    Well, now I know how I ended up with Lupus, because I think banana popsicles are revolting…..always have! So glad that medical mystery has been cleared up for me. So what flavor makes it go away?
