Thank you all for the kind welcome and support. It means a lot to me, especially right now. Sometimes, I do feel alone in this. It's like no one else that I know, understands what I'm going through. It's nice to see that this forum is busy throughout the day. I was on another forum that was getting 1 or 2 posts per day, which was getting discouraging.
To reply to some of the posts:
I'll try and look into the thyroid issue and also get a referral to a GI doctor.
Stress and anxiety, I feel, is the hardest thing to overcome each and everyday. After talking about
it today with a few friends, acceptance of the condition and talking about
it helps a lot.
If only I could have ice cream tonight. lol.
I'll look into taking the Protonix everyday, at least for the 30 days.
I went out earlier today and looked for some sleeping pillow aids. I bought 3 large circular pillows and putting them in a triangle with my regular pillows felt great. Let's see how this works before I get into raising the head of the bed or blocks.
I've tried some breathing techniques today and it really helped through some stressful moments. Eventually, I forgot what I was thinking about
and moved on to finding something to keep me busy.
I went driving around town. lol. For some reason, driving helps me forget about
