I'm over it. It's just the most painful sickness and never ending. Just as you think you might be over it, the pain comes back full blast. I've done everything right. I've eaten all the right foods. ( which is barely enough to feed an ant) I've taken the meds. I've stayed quiet, tried hard not to be anxious, taken little walks... Can't for too long as I live in Thailand with the unbearable heat and pollution. Had no pain for two days then bang, hits me like thunder in full force. So to top it all of I also have Bronchitis... Both I've had now for 6 weeks and I'm not even half way better. Great combination, enough to make me potty. I'm at my wits end. My cousin is sending some stuff from Australia which she said works wonders. Here's hoping as I've really had enough.

Ok over with my rant... But truely I feel for all of you who are going through the same crap. It is just painfully unbearable.

    Jackie, let us all know what your cousin sends you from Australia.  The most debilitating and depressing illness ever.

    I used to get gastritis and was hospitalised with it a few times. Licquorice sorts me out.

      Georgia, what kind of licorice. I wonder if I can find it in Thailand . Yes I've heard good things about it.

      I suck on licquorice juice sticks and you can get licquorice sticks to chew in the UK. I think they sell them in ebay if that's any help.

      Just make sure it's genuine licorice and not a flavoured candy.  Also, licorice is contraindicated for some people.  I won't take it, for example, because of family history of haemorraghic stroke.  I think it has some effect on blood pressure, among other things.  Also it interacts with certain medications.
