If you are overweight, that would make reflux worse, It would be prudent for you to consult a GI doctor for esophagitis and advice about nutrition. Read more

Remember that hangover is multifaceted. Be well. Read more

My sister committed suicide from a drug/alcohol overdose. I know it depends on the drug (s) & amount of alcohol. Would this been a painful death?

Usually not: People who have witnessed such deaths describe them as peaceful. I'm very sorry about your sister and whatever it was that caused her to decide life wasn't worth living. Our minds play tricks on us, and each of us has times when we are not ourselves. I hope you'll cherish the memories that you had together, and live your own life richly and well. Read more
