"You really need to change your diet," my psychiatrist told me this morning after I discussed what I usually eat.
"Hit the organic section of Kroger," He said. "Eat the wholesome Kashi microwave meals and whole grain cereals."
Dad was nodding his head as my psychiatrist said this. "I need to eat that way as well," He added.
"I believe diet goes a long way to bolster your mental health," Dr. Kern said.
What did we do when we left the doctor's office? We went straight to Hardee's and ordered four of the most fattening biscuits on the menu.
"These damn biscuits are so good," Dad said with his mouth full as he drove.
I laughed. I hope I wasn't the only one who saw the absurdity of it all.
Mom called me when I got home. It was grocery day. We discussed what I needed. I mentioned the Kashi meals and mom went into a tailspin.
"Just forget about it and get me the usual," I finally said.
I really need to start going with her to more carefully plan my meals. But I'm feeling panicky right now and am going to stay home.
