My GERD started a few months ago and reading others personal stories has given me some hope. For me, my reflux is all day every day. I dont get a break from the pain. And being a mom and a wife I feel like I'm failing lately because I've fallen into a deep depression and becoming distant. I'm constantly having anxiety with my heartburn hoping and praying it goes away, I'm on strong ppi's twice daily to help but so far no luck. I'm uninsured and struggling financially right now with all the tests they want me to do. I hope you all find some relief soon. I wouldn't wish this upon anybody.
