I have been super positive lately and feeling better but the past few days I have had a severe burning sensation in my chest, worse than normal and I’m pretty sure it’s another damn ulcer. I am going into the doctor tomorrow to get it checked out before I head to Long Island. Will probably have to do another course of Nexium to clear it up. I keep getting ulcers. Two years ago I had 4 ulcers at one time. I think it’s just stress honestly. I am constantly stressed out about my health. It’s such a vicious cycle.
I picked up some Lemon Balm gel caps at the store which are supposed to be really helpful with digestive disorders as well as anxiety. I also got some homeopathic drops and stress balm to put on my temples and wrists before bed to calm my nerves.
Ugh I am just in so much pain right now. Sometimes typing it out makes me feel better. I don’t know why.
I am off to make some Slippery Elm tea to hopefully coat my stomach and give me relief even though so far nothing is helping the pain and burning at all. I just want it to stop.
Happy movies time and heating pad.
I am going to end this entry with a positive quote as I never want to end anything in a negative way. I have to stay positive. always.
“Once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
