One thing to keep reminding yourself. Chocolate (especially dark & semisweet) can be poisonous to dogs. So, by you eating all the chocolate, you are actually helping your dog!
Seriously, I'm the exact same way with Twix bars. When I was living in CA, I could go through a bag of those minis in one day. The more I had, the more I wanted. BTW-when I was quitting smoking, my candy intake nearly sent me into a sugar coma. Just like smoking, I do think that there is such a thing as a chocolate addiction. There is a drug in chocolate that is very similar to caffeine (dogs & cats can't metabolize it like we can). So, maybe the chocolate plus the diet Pepsi is making you jittery. You're already stressed out (and I really hope your dog is doing better), so all these things and the cold could be throwing you into a flare. That's just my unwarranted, unproffessional, dx.
BTW-um, maybe I'm being stupid here (wouldn't be the first time), but do you mean that you can't drink diet Pepsi out of a can-even if you pour it into a glass? LOL-if not, stop drinking it out of the can and pour it into a glass! Oh, BTW-I don't like eating ice cream with a metal spoon. Maybe we all have some weird metal deterrant/toxicity/anxiety.

I wish the best for your dog, 4 yrs now? That has to be hard on both of you.
The temperature here this morning was 24 degrees- Sherrine has no idea how many people are coming to stay with her in Florida this winter!! It was cold yesterday too and I had a few errands to run and my pain was 8 and 9. This will be my first winter with fibro and if this is any inkling of what it's going to be like- no thanks!!
On Halloween night when the trick or treaters come, I'm going to give candy out in handfuls so I don't have any left here to tempt me!
