its like a dragon in the esophagus

Thursday, October 05, 2017

well the 50th has come and gone.
it was a very good birthday. and i dont feel 50, well, maybe i do, i dont know what its supposed to "feel" like. i walked, and i have walked all this week, its been nice weather.
im getting ready to go this morning to the track. the only issue going on with me right now is the return of GERD!!
I had a very bad bout with it Monday night, I honestly was up from midnight til 330 am, just waiting for relief.
so tuesday and yesterday was bland food day and very little of it. i really dont eat late in the evening, this is one reason.
its early bird special for me all the time. but the only good thing about gerd, as if there is any, is that i dont snack in the evening either.
my food has to be digested well about 2 hours before bedtime, which for me is early. 10 pm mostly, 11 at the very latest.
so, i dont usually eat anything after 6 pm, just to make sure my stomach doesnt attack me in the middlle of the night.
acid reflux is the worst.
the zantac isnt working so i went and bought some otc stuff and have been taking it every evening.
i was supposed to have had hiatal hernia repair surgery in march, it was postponed and i havent gone back to reschedule, but everything i read tells me that losing weight is most productive for this condition, and i am trying, ever day!!
that and change of diet, less alcohol, which is only a once in a while thing for me, less caffiene....i will save that for very last.
hope everyone is having a great week.
