recently diagnosed with GERD/GORD. Really changed my life. Turned everything upside down. So hard to cope. Have three little kids. Wake up thinking what life is going to be like. Will i be able to do my job? will i be able to be there for the kids. Trying to keep it together and stay strong. Everything i read is such a downer, make me depressed further. Can someone please share a happy story - that we can defeat that bustard of GERD and if not that we can have a good life and be there to raise our kids the way they deserve. Sorry to pour my gutts all over it. I am really lost facing it all. Thanks for the good news.
