Fun with Gastroparesis

I spent yesterday in agony and so queasy I wished to throw up just to get it over with. Never happened of course, so I went to bed still feeling like there was alien spawn break dancing inside my belly.

Woke up this morning not feeling sick and I just had a little bowl of cream of wheat. Thank the Gods for this golden, creamy goodness, it made the tummy happy, not sick! *Does happy nekkid Pagan dance*

Gastroparesis is a form of neuropathy, it is damage to the nerves of the stomach, making it unable to break down food as it should. The food sits in the stomach and rots, until you either vomit or have a nasty case of the runs.

The pain is unbelievable and for those in the advanced stages of the disease, it means being in and out of the hospital.

I am in the early stages and I know it will get worse, but I won’t be giving up, I will fight this as hard as I can, I refuse to just give up.

To all my GP brothers and sisters, I love you all and will be here for any of you, just as I know you all will be there for me.

  1. Are you still able to work? Mom in the early stages as well but I haven’t been back to work since before I was diagnosed.
