I was diagnosed with gerd 5 years ago, I wasn’t funny at first because I knew nothing about it, I had heaviness in my chest, difficulty breathing, back throat mucus and all the discomforts. My main fear was when I started having anxiety and panic attacks, I went off food because I was scared of eating, I lost weight. Nobody knew what I was going through, my family don’t even take my condition serious. I am just left alone to go through this. At some point I had a flare up so bad I couldn’t swallow, I went into depression and anxiety and is still going through it. I wish I could have someone come to my aid. It’s never been an easy journey. And in my country not much is known about it and what foods to eat or avoid.
