Holiday Health — The Pharmacy! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year — almost! It’s the holidays and with that comes stomach issues. Eating foods we don’t normally eat. Visiting friends who say, “Come on, it’s Christmas, have some!” Our brain says, “NO, don’t do it, you will suffer for it! However, we cave in to the festivities and end up in stomach pain.

For me, lately, espresso coffee/alcohol does not agree with me. I spoke to my mother. She’s been having stomach issues too. In fact, 83 years old, she had terrible stomach pains and ended up in the hospital having her gallbladder out. We both talked about having the same kind of pain. Interesting, right!

THIS IS FUNNY — I went to the pharmacy. They didn’t have what I needed on the shelf. The pharmacist said I needed to press the Customer Service button, then someone would come to assist me.

I innocently pressed the button. I thought a light would flash and someone would come over. NO, worse, I hear on the loud speaker, “CUSTOMER SERVICE NEEDED AT STOMACH REMEDIES – repeat – Customer Service needed at stomach remedies.”

Why is this funny? Imagine if I was in the tampon or condom isle and the loud speaker goes off. Certainly, no privacy in trying to make a purchase. A teenager would be mortified that’s for sure.

I could see this as a comedy skit on Seinfeld. Miss that show.

So, moral of the story… Be careful what you eat / drink on New Year’s Eve. Don’t over indulge; otherwise, you will be pressing that Customer Service button.

I wish you a blessed and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      1. Over time you’re body adapts. The gallbladder helps digest fats. The first year after surgery I had to watch my fat intake as too much fat would cause a stomach upset. For a few months I went fat free on food as much as I could. These days I don’t have any real diet restrictions, but I still avoid very fatty foods. Except for the small scar, you wouldn’t know I had surgery.

  1. Happy New Year! I won’t be indulging in any more of that mulled wine – even the non-alcoholic kind bothered my stomach – too much acid……same with the mincemeat pie. I’ll have to toast the New Years with ginger ale. PS. I’ve never seen that in any pharmacy here.
