I couldn't wait for my summer to begin last year! My Girl Scout troop had worked hard to raise money for a week-long trip to Europe, so I was all set to kick off my break by touring the Eiffel Tower and Buckingham Palace with my friends.
But in late April 2015, something just didn’t seem right with my body. My abdomen looked really bloated, and I could barely eat a few bites of food without feeling full and getting heartburn. I had pain just breathing, and felt like my stomach was going to burst.
