Take a Breath

New Page 1

So, in my ongoing epic struggles with my stomach, and/or intestinal ulcer, after having completed this year's round of antibiotics, Prevacid, and then one month of pain with no acid inhibitor, I go in for a breath test to see if there are any remaining H. Pylori little asshole muther fuckers in there that are still eating away at my GI lining.  I can tell you that there are, even without the test, seeing as my stomach hurts every freaking day and its been over a month since I finished the antibiotics.  I stopped taking my pre-natal vitamin because that seemed to exacerbate my pain and for the few days I have not taken it, I think its helped.  I have no idea what a breath test entails as last time I was supposed to take it, a year ago, I was in Jordan and missed the window.  But what I do know is this, I can't have anything to eat or drink this morning, and my stomach acid is churning and hurting.  This also means no coffee over which I am VERY put out.  I am feeling the no coffee crankies to be sure.  I can go in as early as 9:00 a.m. to have the test done and I am going to get there as soon as humanly possible so as to not draw out my decaffeinated torture any longer.
