Getting together for a ladies night out after having kids is quite a challenge. I’m sure you’ve seen memes circling the internet about planning a girl’s night out and then not being able to find a date where everyone is available and has a babysitter until months later. I’m fortunate to have a group of ladies I love and adore, and we plan such events. The more kids we had between us, the more challenging it was to find a date that worked with all of us. Between us, we now have 10 kids, and while having a sitter on hand isn’t always a big deal, last minute issues come up like a child being sick.
A few weeks ago we finally had plans to go out. I was ecstatic about it until my friends started talking about what foods they couldn’t wait to eat from our favorite Sushi restaurant. The dishes they mentioned stirred up my own emotions when it came to saucy foods. You see, I’ve suffered from heartburn for years, and while I love Sushi, it usually causes my heartburn to flare up. I’d rather deal with the anxiety of getting a sitter versus anxiety about what foods I’ll be able to eat and enjoy my night! My heartburn comes in spurts- some months it’s tolerable until it’s not. This was one of those months where I knew I had to take care of the issue before I felt like a fire-breathing dragon.
I was on Nexium before it was available over the counter, and every so often my doctor will recommend that I start the two-week over the counter course of Nexium 24HR to tame my heartburn. Nexium 24HR is sold as a 2-week course with 14 capsules in the bottle. It’s available at your local drugstore, Walmart, etc. Nexium 24HR isn’t for your occasional heartburn, but rather, for people like me who suffer with heartburn two or more times a week. Before starting any medications, be sure to consult with your doctor first, as everyone’s experiences vary.
Taking Nexium 24HR leading up to the evening, I got my heartburn under control. I would say our ladies night was a success! We laughed, joked, cried, and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company.
