Dodgy Stomach…

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a dodgy stomach. If I ate the wrong thing… I’d get sick. If I ate too much of something, I’d get sick… if I didn’t eat… I’d get sick.

Now… every once an a while, I’ll get sick for no apparent reason. Last night I came home and wasn’t feeling well. I didn’t want dinner, I had a brownie later and regretted it. So I chalked this up to another one of “those” nights where my tummy is going to misbehave and there’s not a darned thing I can do about it.

I went to sleep rather easily, but wham… I was up at Midnight with a tummy problem. Tums didn’t help it. Milk & Bread didn’t help it. Pepto didn’t help it.  That was kind of a bummer, because my tried and true are Tums and Pepto… *sigh*

So, I ended up sleeping in my recliner for most of the night. That’s the reason why I have a recliner in my bedroom. I have these tummy problems enough that I bought a recliner for my bedroom so that I can at least get some sleep. I’ve become quite adept at sleeping in a recliner. Sad. But true.

So… I sit here sipping on a Diet Mountain Dew, which is the closest thing my employer has to Ginger Ale and wait the tummy to get better… the first clue will be when I start burping… once that starts, then I’m golden.

So… have yourself a happy Wed. I will… my week is already 1/2 over!

    Having suffered for a long time with stomach trouble of my own I really do sympathize. The standard remedies have never worked for me either. Recently I had a fever and a terribly soar throat and in the middle of that the stomach started up…that’s still not right though the fever and throat are better. Recover quickly I pray my friend.

    Hope you feel better soon, Juli. After my first spinal surgery I was unable to lie flat because of the &#$%@!! stiff cervical collar I had to wear 23.5/7 for 104 miserable days (I was allowed to remove it when I showered). I spent nearly 4 months sleeping in a recliner then had to learn how to sleep in a bed again.

    BTW: When my neurosurgeon told me I no longer had to wear the collar I took it to the range and blew it to smithereens with a shotgun MWAHAHAHA!
