Someone forgot to tell me to eat

So, for a couple of weeks prior, I'd been skipping meals to get homework done. Last Wednesday, though, I started having severe stomach pains. The next day I go to the health and wellness center on campus, and they diagnose me with gastritis. Basically, this is a condition of the stomach lining being inflamed by too much stomach acid due to a number of causes, including... *drumroll* Stress! (And probably enhanced by not eating!)

So yeah. I need to eat so this doesn't happen again. BUT, I'm not allowed to eat tomato products, citrus, caffene, or NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for the time being. In a nutshell, that means no pizza, no soda, no orange juice, and no ANTI-INFLAMMATORY medicine (ibuprofen) for the INFLAMING of the stomach.

Sucks, no?

Picture somewhat related.

So you need to eat but can't? That's possibly the most tragic thing I have ever heard in my entire life.
