The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

Every morning I make it a point to put a little something in my mouth before I leave out for work. The reason being is so that I would not be taking my Metformin on an empty stomach which you guessed it could lead to nasseau. The only thing I had for breakfast was a cup of coffee.
Recently, I started making my own coffee in the morning to save money because almost every morning I would end up buying a cup at Dunkin Donuts. This was the first time in the week and a half that I decided to brew my own coffee that I drank it without eating anything along with it. Also at work I like to drink a bottled Starbucks vanilla cappuccino. I believe a combination of drinking two coffee drinks with no food buffer and then taking my medicine on an empty stomach really did me in. I usually take my first dose of Metformin a little after nine. By eleven that morning I felt as though I had just gotten off a tilt whirl. I felt nauseous and miserable. I did not feel that I could continue on at work. Even when I buy a coffee I also buy a reduced fat blueberry muffin (9-points on Weight Watchers) as a buffer.
This morning I made extra sure to eat something before I left out. I had a Lean Hot Pocket. Usually home breakfast fare is usually Weight Watchers baked goods like Blue Berry Muffins 3-points, or any of there 1-point treats like carrot cake, caramel cake, chocolate cake, etc. along with a cup of coffee
