I woke up at 2:00 am this morning with terrible, burning acid reflux, and started coughing from its making its way up my esophagus. I took a good quantity of Gaviscon after rinsing out my mouth and all, and then after an hour sucked on some ice chips to hopefully get the burning in my chest under control.
I finally fell asleep again around 4 o'clock, and woke when the alarm went off at 5:30 am. Still some burning in the chest and throat, and some coughing.
Anyway, suffice to say, the day is going to be a long one, I'm still suffering from the aftermath of the acid reflux, and it hurts to talk so I'm a bit...raspy.
Back to work. And a nice, soothing cup of peppermint tea.
Life goes on.
