More than this is an actual question, I just wondered if anyone could relate: I've been dealing with severe GERD for 2.5 years now, but for the last 6 months I've been going through an insane flare up of symptoms to the point that I am now only drinking formula because all other food causes me pain, and I regurgitate it. I often wonder though (and wonder if anyone can relate) if I could fix all of this? I've realized I have hit a "comfortable" point in all of this where, although I am in pain and only drinking formula, I am too scared to move forward because of fear of moving backwards if that makes sense. But I think a lot about, what if I pushed myself harder? What if I tried every solution I know there to be to heal my body? What if I forced myself to be in a routine every day and forced myself to temporarily be in more pain for the hope of a better outcome? What if I started stretching every day, started natural supplements, started adding acid back into my stomach naturally, started taking walks every day, started going to sleep earlier, started eating again even through the pain? MORE than anything, I just hope this post is relatable to others out there because sometimes I feel like the only thing really holding me back from healing is myself.
