Cez, I can totaly relate to the wanting to eat things you shouldn't and yes I actually do it too sometimes. It makes me think twice now though after this asthma attack because when my stomach is upset by things I eat it affects the asthma. I got the asthma because of the GERD, so try to resist the chocolate and other irritants to the GERD. I know it's not easy. Hang in there. My botss isn't always so understanding and that was why I didn't call her when I got sick and was hospitalized. I called her boss instead because I knew she could handle her and I couldn't handle any more stress at that time. We had a long talk today about
it and she said that was better I had done it that way and that her boss had told her how upset I was about
it all and even cryed knowing there wasn't any thing I could do. You are very lucky to have such an understanding boss. That in it self is a great thing. I know what you mean though about
working and feeling normal. I think sometimes that is the best therapy for us. I know I feel a whole lot better being back at work again. I hope you continue to improve and get through this. We are here for you when you need us. Barb
