Vile Bile

Okay, last night I was in bed, asleep, minding my own business, probably dreaming - I love dreaming.   Then, all of a sudden, I felt it.  It.  That vile, disgusting regurgitation coming up my throat . . . in a big fat hurry.  Like it had somewhere important to be.  A party, or  perhaps a job interview that it was late for.    I sat up with a start.   And sat there, making that kind of face that only a sour lemon . . . or vile bile . . . can evoke.   Once it passed, I got up, brushed my teeth, popped a couple of Tums, and went back to bed.   Sitting up . . .  Afraid . . .  Very afraid . . . of the vile bile that might make a return visit.

  2. Bless your heart. I know exactly what you mean. I've had a hiatal hernia and GERT for many years, so chronic indigestion has been a way of life for me. (If you have the problem often, you should check with your doctor.)

  3. I feel your pain...and discomfort! I can't tell if I feel nauseous from being overtired, or overtired because of the yucks! That good old chalky goodness of tums!

  6. That's starting to happen to me more and more too. :( Except mine's like a stuck burp or something. Not comfy. Thank you for the reminder to put Tums on my grocery list.

  9. I understand it's part of aging. Keep an eye on it and if it gets to happening more and more you'll want to do more than just take some tums after it happens.

  11. I love dreaming too. Lately I have been dreaming about several things, but they all leave me feeling like I am in a bunch of trouble. Not at all sure of what that means, but it hasn't stopped me from wanting to dream.

  12. Age, stress, spicy food...we can all relate, but I agree with Susan...if it continues...tell your Doc.
