    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is browneyedbaker. I'm here because I feel like I keep hitting dead ends for help with chronic stomach pain and nausea and it's pretty lonely sometimes. I am hoping to find others with tip on how to feel better.

    Night Terrors

    I have had night terrors since I was a child due to PTSD. I’m 46 years old and the nightmares are still with me. I will wake up screaming , soaked with sweat. On a really bad night I will wake up screaming, soaked with sweat and I peed in the bed. They have been so bad lately that I refuse to sleep. I will do this for days until I’m so exhausted my
    Body just gives in to it. Any suggestions about how to prevent or something I could do to help the anxiety at night or stop the nightmares. I’m on Prazosin to help prevent nightmares. I don’t know what else I can do. I’m so tired. #Night Terrors

    I just got diagnosed with Gastroparesis

    I just got diagnosed with Gastroparesis. Doc said it's a really bad case of it. I currently can't eat any solids. I'm feeling miserable and in pain. I'm so scared. #Gastroparesis

    Hi, my name is magicalmustang. I'm here because I just had a gj tube placed last week, and there’s so much to adjust to that isn’t shared or known by professionals. Like travel tips, skin irritation creams, do I need to keep my “food” cold in the bag, and just how do we do this?

    Best Gift

    I have Gastroparesis and the sloth is the animal used to represent it as our digestion is excessively slow, like a sloth. This shirt was a Valentine's gift from my son. It just arrived and I love it.

    The death process is so hard💔

    I’m sitting here in the veterans home with my dad who doesn’t have long with us and my heart is so broken. I lost my baby brother, 55 years old, in June, had lost my oldest brother in 2011, 54 years old and then it was me and my daddy. He lives on my property and was very independent, on December 7th he fell after coming back from the grocery and broke his femur, he is 89, and has declined since. I just needed to put this in writing, kind of like having all of y’all to talk to. I ask please, that y’all will keep us in your thoughts and prayers, that he will have a peaceful transition. I will miss him so very much💔

    Hi, my name is Wendymitch66. I'm here because I am coming to the end of my rope. I have been diagnosed with gastroparesis. I also have fibro. I can handle one of these, but not both. I miss my food!
