A bitter pill to swallow

Well Dh and I got up yesterday morning ready to hit the road for Canton's First Monday Flea Market. I went about my business as usual, getting ready, doing my hair, and taking my vitamins and my 1 prescription medication. That little pill got stuck in my Esophagus and began to dissolve in there. Which must have burned my Esophagus, because I started to feel the worst heartburn I've ever had. It quickly escalated to become some of the worst pain I've ever been in. After about an hour of this I finally threw up and began to feel a bit better. I slept till noon and then was able to get up and do stuff, but I felt like I had a lump in my chest all day long. Today it is better but I still feel something sometimes when I swallow. I found this article on Drug-Induced Esophagitis. Needless to say DH and I did not go to Canton yesterday. But we decide to try again today. He said, "now do everything like you did yesterday, but when it comes to taking your pills, try drinking some water this time". And So I did, and all went well. Lesson learned the hard way.

So we headed to Canton this morning and here is my loot. I was not after anything big, and it had been pretty picked over but I got a few items for my booth.

Those white hands are glove molds.

Those goggles are blindfold goggles, probably for some sort of fraternal lodge innitiation.

I also found this great necklace, that I was able to get a picture of, and I plan to make one. It's a cocktail fork, or baby fork, can you see it there?

And I loved the way these painted desks looked all in a row, very artsy.

today was a good day, Yesterday...not so much.
Remember to drink lots of water with your pills!

Thank you for the information. My son has been complaining about his throat, and he just started taking new medicine right before bed.

Thank you so much!

Oh girlfriend, I can't take any kind of pill w/o water! I was having to take a HUGE vitiman C pill for awhile - those suckers are hard to swallow no matter how much you drink!
Glad you are better were able to make it to Canton today. Nice loot.

Maybe that's the reason the bottles always say to take with a "full glass of water"...

Oh that sounds painful and awful. Sometimes I take my vitamins with apple sauce...seems to slide down better.

Love the necklace! What a great idea!
