Oh, hey. Thanks for replying justkat. That's good to here. Day 7 has almost ended, so maybe it's just something I need to get past. I've been drinking very very hot water so as to not taste any of the weirdness, but it's certainly not an ideal situation. Hopefully I move on from this stage soon, or else I'll have to just suck on ice cubes or something.
On a side note, are you updating your fasting anywhere? It might be nice to keep in contact with some other people doing the same thing, and support each other. If you'd like, PM me. If not, that's perfectly fine too and I wish you well on your fasting journey.
