Shayfo, thanks for the yoga pose! Very helpful! I too am a massage therapist, and took Advil to get through each month. I also had the stomach burning as you described and urinary tract bleeding. I just thought I was sensitive to coffee. It was probably kidney damage:( yuck! That went away when I stopped a few years ago.
I switched some of my days at work to a different place where I am an independent contractor so that I could rearrange appointments myself. I totally get it:)
I am glad you healed your ulcer! Treating it early probably helped a lot. I might have to invest in some aloe plants this spring!
