  • WHY?????????????????

    Life just really sucks sometimes. I have been sick what seems like forever. This week has been particularly horrible. I was in a meeting where there was pizza and salad which I could not eat so I figured I would just have a sugar cookie. Turns out the cookie wasn't a sugar cookie but a lemon cookie. Didn't find that out until after I ate a bite of it. I had to leave my meeting utterly embarrassed and find some baking soda. I was in even more pain all of thursday night. Friday night I ordered a sub from the pizza shop. Not only do they forget half my order but they put Dijon mustard on the sub. So once again I was runnning around campus looking for baking soda. Once again I was in pain all night. Did I mention that i have two papers due on Tuesday and meeetings from 4:45-10:00 because once again I have over extended myself. I hate whinig and complaining but if I don't then I am jsut going to fall apart. I just want my life back. [img]frown.gif[/img]

    Have you tried Prelief? It really helps take the acidity out of foods. If you contact them, they will send you some samples to try. You can scroll to the top of this page for the link to get your samples.
