Bored And Fed Up

I'm bored tonight and not really in the mood for stitching so been playing about with my blog template. Had had enough of the bright red and wanted something a little less in your face. What do you think?
I'm fed up because on Thursday night I had a wake up call. I've had problems before with getting indigestion and heartburn a lot but on Thursday evening within half an hour of having our dinner I was in agony, doubled up in pain in my upper abdomen. I couldn't keep still and was sobbing with the pain, I really thought I was in serious trouble. DH rang my mum and then went and picked her up so she could watch Erin and rushed me straight up to A&E where I waited 2 hours before even being seen by the triage nurse. DH was getting more and more wound up and I kept having to rush into the toilet to be ill. Anyway the outcome, after downing Gaviscon liquid and having an injection in my bum, is that they think I either have gastritis, or more likely a stomach ulcer. The fact that I have had problems for a while makes it more probable it's an ulcer, which means I may have to have tablets for a couple of months to help heal it, but mostly I have to change my diet drastically as I'm so overweight and avoid stress haha!
So for now I'm downing Gaviscon and eating and drinking very plain things to try to calm my stomach and see how I go from there. Yesterday I was scared to eat at all in case the pain came back as bad, but today I'm fed up because I can't help thinking this is NOT going to be fun. Two choices, unbearable pain or giving up most of the things I love to eat. I know I will get used to it and in the long run I'll probably be thankful I had this kick up the bum to make me do something, but right now I'm fed up....
