If you’ve been keeping up, you know that I don’t sleep. At least not lately.
Yesterday, I felt tired early. This was good! The kids were knocked out, I was studying and falling asleep. I set my book aside and laid it down hoping to drift off fast and for long.
I kept watching the clock. Tossing and turning. I was fidgety.
And then I felt this burning sensation in the pit of my stomach. It crept up. And sat. Sat right there. Right in the center of my rib cage. HEARTBURN!! I don’t even get heartburn!! But I did last night. And it was relentless. It wouldn’t stop. It wouldn’t go away.
I googled remedies, but I wasn’t about to drink vinegar or eat a spoonful of baking soda. So I planned to wait it out.
Any other time I’ve had heartburn, it lasted maybe an hour. I figured it’d be gone soon.
I still have it.
I fell asleep around 6:00am, watching TV One. Me and the late night shows are best buds now. I had to be up by 8. So here I am…up. And so very tired.
