OR simply what it is…..

Gastroesophageal reflux disease

…..and the E is not even its own word only part of the whole.

I have been seeing a doctor off and on for the last few months as I thought I had allergies or something.  I surely had symptoms.  Well after all the specialists and MRIs and MREs and ultrasounds and Cat scans and blood work – I am thinking they went a lot over and beyond – I have been diagnosed with GERD.

It seems so trivial and common place after all the tests I have had.  I will take it as easier to deal with than many things I envisioned.

I now have to give up all the favorite foods I enjoy – milk, cheese, tomatoes.  Never again a Bloody Mary!  OH HOW WILL I SURVIVE!!!  Truth be told I have not had one in a couple of years.  Still the thought that I can never again……..well………

So I will give this all a go and see how it works.  There are some pills I am taking at this point.  I do have to admit that my voice sounds better.  Who would have thought that voice and coughing and mucus had anything to do with acid reflux?  Oh well I am learning a new way to live yet again.  I am thinking this is something I can overcome and deal with.

The answer seems obvious – eat right and feel good or eat wrong and have heartburn, sore throat and coughing.  I am certain I will choose the right way yet chocolate is on the not so good list ……..hmmmmmmmmmmmm…
