I’m back. I know you didn’t know I was gone. Now you see what had happened was; my stomach took a turn for the worse as I typed the words Pepto Bismal. So I had to pause for about five minutes to go to my thinking booth (bathroom). Man it’s all good for now, I feel better and am a bit lighter.
But seriously speaking, on yesterday, Christmas Day, I was wrapped up lying on the couch in the fetal position because my stomach was upset. I was also very nauseous which was at that time my #1 issue. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced a nauseated stomach, but if so you know just as I do, that you really can’t do much other than lye down until it passes.
Now for me, I have these unpleasant experiences almost on a daily basis, sometimes more than once a day. I can be feeling just fine, up and about, actively doing things and all of a sudden without warning I’m leaning over my sink or cabinet or whatever I can lean on at that time to keep from falling over.
I thank God for Pepto Bismol. I keep myself stocked up with it at all times. After I empty a bottle and am down to one, I buy another one so I’ll never be without it. The five main symptoms that Pepto Bismol help with are nausea, heart burn, indigestion, upset stomach and diarrhea. And you can be rest assured that it works. As a matter of fact, I’ll be taking a dose after I finish this blog because my stomach is upset right now.
So, several hours later after taking the Pepto Bismol and napping, I woke up feeling much better and was finally able to eat some of my Christmas meal. Yummy yummy, it was good.
Now some of you may be experiencing some of the symptoms listed above because you over did it on Christmas Day. Over did it- ate too much, drunk to much or ate some thing that just didn’t set right with you. If you don’t already have some Pepto Bismol in your medicine cabinet, then get up right now, (if you’re feeling up it) and run out and get a bottle (liquid) or package (pills). Pepto Bismol is sold for both children and adults.
When you are feeling better click on the link and sing the Pepto Bismol Song. And if you’re not a singer, enjoy this commercial. What ever you do, remember what the cause of your discomfort was on Christmas Day so you won’t have the same experience on New Year’s Day.
If you continue to have discomfort in your stomach read this article by Healthline to get advice on things you could have around your kitchen to help you feel better. They even give you advice on what to do if these problems continue.
But in the mean time, I think I’ll go open this new bottle of Pepto Bismol and take the recommended dosage so I’ll start feeling better faster and sooner than I did on yesterday. Here’s to a healthier you.
