I never thought I would see the day when you wouldn't be enough to sooth my constant pregnancy heartburn and indigestion. You've been so very loyal and consistent up until now and I've alway relied on your ability to quickly deal with my regular acid build up.
Unfortunately things have changed and I don't think we can continue on this journey together any longer. The chalky minty taste of your tablets that are forever getting stuck in my teeth have now become unbearable. I think if I'm completely honest with myself, I've probably had too much of a good thing. The excitement I felt when I discovered I was able to have you for FREE (good old NHS prescription) was close to euphoria (you don't get out much when you're pregnant). I was able to have you at close reach at all times and maybe I abused that, I suspect that I did.
I now finding myself waking up in the night with severe indigestion and reaching out for you but you're no longer soothing my discomfort. It's so sad that things have to end like this and I really thought you would be by my side until the end of my pregnancy journey but it's not meant to be.
So long Gaviscon, you served me well for so long, but I need to find something new. So for now I'm going to put you in a drawer for the day I might need you in my life again.
Remember it's not you, it's me!
