In the process of diagnosing my celiac, the gastroenterologist noticed that I have GERD. Now that I know it, I notice it too. And caffeine is indeed a trigger for me.
No, not the coffee! Not the tea! And not the chocolate!
There are decent herbal drinks that taste coffee like – but they are made out of barley, which has gluten.
So, I’m cutting down to two cups of coffee a day, hoping that’s enough. I already have a tilted bed. If it doesn’t I’ll cut down to one; then none. At least that way I won’t get headaches.
I’m looking for a joke to put here – or something profound. I could learn something spiritually from this? Since I have to ‘fast’ anyway, it could…nah.
OK, a joke; yarn is still caffeine and gluten free.
But for both money and time, it still has to be budgeted. I think I’m still looking for the spiritual/joke part. I guess I’m just a middle aged grown up and I have to eat and swim like one, without pouting.
Oh that sounds boring.
