I was diagnosed with GERD a couple of years ago ... and I absolutely hate, hate, hate it. Yes, I know ... my Mom told me that it was not nice to use the word hate (just like your Mom did too I'm sure). But I hate it. I had an absolutely yummy cheeseburger tonight, and instead of looking back on it and remembering how good it was ... I get to live with acid creeping up into my throat for the rest of the evening. I won't be able to sleep in bed tonight either -- I'll be stuck in my chair, pretending to be comfortable. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!
