I was sitting here at work, been here for an hour, minding my own biz-ness my biz-nass when allofasudden my lower back went ungggggghhhhh and ow it's all sore or something. And then I think I might have a little indigestion or something? All at once? I think I'm dying. Is there some sort of fatal condition which is evidenced by sudden lower back pain accompanied by mild indigestion? Cuz I think I've got it.

In related news, I do not look forward to getting old and falling apart, because I am such a baby about pain. Last night I had indigestion or gas or heartburn or something -- by the way, how the hell am I supposed to know which is which? I was absent that day. I feel something in my chest, I know I'm supposed to take something Tums/Mylanta/Pepto Bismol related, but I'll be damned if I know exactly what I'm experiencing. Also I hate saying that I have "gas", it sounds so gross, even though it isn't really, it's just really severe chest pain. I was watching Harry Potter last night (finally!) (it was okay) and whining to myself about my terrible gas. The last time I had indigestion (see? I'm just going to call it that) was when watching the first LotR movie with my mom, so maybe my mom's DVDs give me gas. Ha ha.

I always wondered what heartburn was. Then one day I finally experienced it, which was not a good thing. It felt, literally, like a kind of burning, high up in my chest, near my heart. Below throat but above stomach.

Indigestion, by my definition, is a stomach-or-below thing that is not a burning but more cramping or stabbing or piercing kind of pain. Heartburn is a more spread-out and irritated pain.

But ... we all work in differen ways! I think the best separator (and someone's totally free to call me on this one) is the stomach - above, it's heartburn, below, it's indigestion.

So what's GAS?

I typically lump gas in with intestinal distress of any kind, however, when it's at its worst (once again for me personally) it's a very-low intestine thing and very sharp piercing pain. Like ... you know that diarrhea feeling? Where your gut is all oogy and you need to go? Remove the urgency from that and run a sharpen filter, crank up the intensity. That's gas pains for me.

I equate gas with feeling like you're just...full. And NOT of food. Like you really need to explode or something? Stomach aches (and trust me, I'm well versed on these -- I had regular stomach aches for YEARS that the doctors eventually diagnosed as "growing pains") are more sharp pain, more localized. Scrow is right that when you get heartburn, you know it. It IS higher and it's kind of an acidy, gross, burning feeling that's spread out.

you insult my style!
My middle finger is so mighty that it does not need the assistance of it's index and ring counterparts.

Why do I get a middle finger? That's rude.

Don't be offended! It's just how I communicate.

Just happened upon your journal from the Bonnaroo community and saw the icon of my idol, Dr. Thompson.

I went to the festival last year and am going again this year.

I'm from Long Island, NY.

Isn't that fucked up?

Isn't what fucked up, that you're from Long Island? Nah, tons of people are from Long Island.

Re: who lives in a pinapple under the sea......
That is not my hat! That is Hunter S. Thompson's hat, as that is who is in the icon. But I'm sure he thanks you.

Florida isn't on the way to Tennesee from Jersey, unfortunately . . . it's too bad you won't be making it this year.

And add away! I wish you better weather. It's been rainy and cloudy an awful lot up here, too -- and the few days that are beautiful never seem to fall on a weekend. Such is life.
