I get very jealous too of what others are able to enjoy. I can't not want those things too. Going out to eat without the fear of an upset stomach or nausea(thus leading to panic), having drinks with friends, eating anything you want, not taking a pill everyday....
It's going to be a tough rest of the week. I'm drinking some decaf green tea in place of my usual coffee. I don't have a headache but I feel so sluggish, like I don't want to do anything or think about anything. I think, well tea is super healthy(I don't drink black tea anymore, just ginger, green, and tension tamer, anything mild and decaf). Maybe I could go on a super health kick. Instead of drinking a beer, have a bottle of water, clean up my diet. Be a health nut. It seems like it would make me feel better if I was doing it with a purpose instead of feeling like I was giving things up.
And too, I've noticed that my acid reflux is worse when my anxiety is worse and my anxiety is worse when I'm upset about things. I either need to work on my anxiety and emotional state or take anti-depressants. I'm afraid of the side effects though.
Anyone get real nauseated from their GERD or acid reflux? Even if your stomach doesn't necessarily feel upset?
