|"I just had a bad experience with aspartame. I was told by my doctor a few months ago that I was a borderline diabetic. I was told to watch my sugar intake and exercise. So, I began using Splenda, but then decided to use the cheaper sugar substitutes containing aspartame.
I purchased diet soft drinks and sugar-free cookies. I began having severe cramps and didn't feel well for days. I stopped using anything with aspartame and, by the next day, I was fine.
I bought some sweetener packets with saccharin. I don't use very many. I also use Splenda. I sure hope someone makes some cookies and candy and soft drinks with something besides aspartame."
