I am infatuated with Starbucks. Not in the sense that I dream of Starbucks while sleeping or in the sense where I carve my name into a heart alongside the Starbucks logo onto some tree trunk. Infatuated yes, irrational no. But Starbucks is one of the few spoils that I actually crave. If a coffee product is on my mind, it immediately morphs in to a need for Starbucks and Starbucks only. I will pass any number of exits posting signs for coffee until I see one with the sign for Starbucks. My husband does not understand this behavior even in part although I have patiently explained many times why Starbucks is a higher order.

While classic acid reflux disease will cause heartburn, at times it may only cause upper abdominal pain. When it does, the pain is usually located in the upper epigastric area, the region just below the breastbone in the center of the body. Classic gallbladder pain is present in the right upper quadrant, below the ribs on the right side.

In around fifty percent of patients with gallbladder disease, the pain can be in the epigastric area instead of the right upper quadrant.
