Putting out the Fire
Earlier this week I had a really, really bad bout of heartburn. Really bad. It kept me up for a couple of hours at night which is bad when you have to go to work the next day. As I was walking the hallway trying to find some relief from the fire in my chest, I decided that everything mentioned above is going to be cut out because I value my sleep more than I value any of those things.
Cutting out spicy food isn't a problem for me but soft drinks and chocolate, that hurts. But I haven't had heartburn since Monday, the day I stopped everything. So I guess it's working. Sleep has been better too since I don't feel like I'm on fire any more. It just amazes me that I now get what my mom's generation was talking about because I am that generation now. How time flies.
