A Burp! A Burp! My Kingdom for a Burp!

If you have a baby that has or has had colic, could you please go pick them up? Whisper in their ear that Mrs. Spit feels their pain because she has had the adult version of colic since Monday.

Turns out what I thought was food poisoning . . . isn’t.

It’s, well, it’s gas.

Which is embarrassing, and I could live with the eruptions of gas, if that is what would happen. Except, it turns out that I’m in pain precisely because that isn’t happening, and I have to tell you – I would sell my very own soul to be able to burp.

I don’t care about being lady like (obviously, I’m writing about the mysterious plumbing of my intestines in public). I would belch like a college student reciting the alphabet at a keg party – if I only could.

While you are talking to that baby of yours, ask if they would share the gripe water, would you?

I’m pretty miserable over here.

    I have been there & it’s not fun. :p I think stress has a lot to do with it. Whenever I get all stressed out & cry, a good belch often makes me feel better. Go figure. (((hugs)))

    this sounds soooo uncomfortable. I hope it all gets resolved soon. My grandpa once had hiccups for something like a week – he couldn’t sleep – it was terrible!

    for – you know, the other way of getting rid of troublesome gas – my grandmother used to recommend lying on your tummy, then propping your bottom up in the air, to kind of change the position of things (gas is supposed to rise, isn’t it?) and that sometimes brings relief …. from that end.

    Does peppermint help?

    Had something similar 2 years ago, but food poisoning was involved, and in the end it was diagnosed as a partial bowel obstruction and 3 d in the hospital. Being an American, I had to fight with the insurance for about a year to cover my hospital bill. Makes you wonder how these administrators sleep at night.

    Stress, yes, and bad diet contribute to this sort of thing. Hope you feel well enough to post cat pix soon.
