great! i am happy for you
me too i just have a hard time sometimes eating the right food, specially since i eat out all the time, you get some dish that wasn't supposed to be spicy but it is, or too greasy or has cumin, I've been going to the Whole foods since it is a lot healthier and i can choose like a piece of chicken with broccoli and that is it.
What i find hard also is to eat smaller meals, sometimes i am too hungry and i eat as i used to and i feel it more, the doc says that GERD makes stomach emptying slower so that is why i have been feeling so full after eating and gives me shortness of breath, but I can tell it is definitely getting better.
I guess this will teach me to eat better, have less spicy, less beer, less coffee, and be mindful of what i eat.
You are right stress is a major factor when it comes to GERD, what triggered it for me was a situation at work. I found someone doing something criminal and had to speak out and it got big quick. It was horrible for me, although i felt better that i did something, but it took a toll. Now i want to relax for thanksgiving, be in nature, eat small meals, and take care of myself
Good luck, hope you feel 100% better soon
