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.

Friday Vibes

Good evening! I hope you all had a great week. No matter what you go through, you can choose how you'll respond. In all things, choose to be joyful. No one can take that away.

HPN Awareness Week

It's HPN Awareness Week!! I have been on HPN since Sept 2019! This has truly been a lifesaver. I have more energy and have even gained weight back on it. So thankful for HPN (TPN)!!!

I am a Gastroparesis Warrior

It's getting close to the last few days of Gastroparesis Awareness. Had a telephone appt with my GI specialist. Time to schedule with a colorectal surgeon. Not saying that I need surgery, but I need some kind of help. It's all in the life of a Gastroparesis patient. 💚💪🏽

Still in the Midst of Gastroparesis Awareness Month

We are still in August. As such, I'm sharing a sad side to Gastroparesis. It's horrible when you have an actual grief and memorial group, but we do. We've lost 25 members this year. People can die from complications such as, but not limited too: line infections, tube infections, Sepsis, malnutrition or other difficulties that may arise such as liver failure from TPN.🥺💚🙏🏽

An Accomplishment

Hi there. One of my illnesses is Gastroparesis. Well, it's Gastroparesis Awareness Month. I received the Gastroparesis Awareness Month proclamation from the mayor of my city on Tuesday afternoon. I was able to share my story and enlighten her on the disease as she'd never heard of it. I love bringing awareness. #gastroparesisawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #oleyambassador #TPN #patientadvocate
