Some of you may remember that I had an attack of gastritis last year. Well, unfortunately, it seems to be back with a vengeance. My stomach feels painful and bloated, like I swallowed a basketball. Not pretty.
I have a feeling it’s from eating (and drinking) out a lot and not getting enough sleep. I can’t tell you the last time I ate at home, and Dave and I haven’t been able to cook together much during the past two weeks because he’s been engrossed in his move to New Jersey. (Even when we do cook together, what we prepare is a far cry from my previously simple peanut-butter-based diet!)
I refilled my Nexium prescription from last year and began taking that on Saturday. So far, it hasn’t helped much. I’m going to the doctor before work this morning just to run all this past him. Frankly, I’d love to just lie in bed for a few days -- that may be the cure I really need!
