Thank you Bobby, Mari, Addy and Bizi for posting to me. Thank you for caring and for remembering me.
Mood-wise doing a little better and family wise more back to normal, though not fully. I always have the walking on eggs feeling.... it just feels less in my face, but still very present.
Esophageal trouble continues despite the omeprazole - that is the proton pump inhibitor (PPI) MD gave me. i am not being a good patient. i require caffeine to stay awake. i gave up coffee this time but am drinking tons of tea which seems to bother me unless smothered with honey, the tannins perhaps.
So, although i did initially lose the couple kilo's i'd put on from depression, now that i am attempting beverages... all that honey is bumping up my caloric intake to prolly my normal amount if not more. i reduced as of today. (i dislike alternative sweeteners.) i tried coffee again it was ok - i think that is what i had when i went on the diet earlier this year, without even a PPI on board.
at night, i sometimes have infusions which i drink plain. Mauve
infusion is especially good for the gullet and tummy.... coats all your insides and protects them.
I'll update my other thread wrt therapy in a bit. I have updates. And lots of appointments. I put them in a list in my phone. They were on scraps of paper and I was afraid I'd lose them. I'm not the tidiest person and right now worst of all - even more likely to "set something down temporarily" end up with other stuff on top of it and then forget where i set it.... bye bye scrap of paper.
