    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)!!!

    Dysautonomia Awareness Month

    I know this month is full of awareness. For me, it represents Dysautonomia Awareness (Autonomic Dysfunction). It affects lots for me such as Orthostatic Hypotension, Hypoglycemia, Gastroparesis, Migraines, temperature dysregulation, Neurogenic Bladder, and much more. Check out the article for more information. www.dysautonomiainternational.org/page.php

    I'm a Warrior

    #chronicillnesswarrior #gastroparesisawareness #socialhealth #patientadvocate #TPN #rarediseaseawareness

    Yesterday I had several procedures done 3 hrs from home. This picture was taken on my way. I have Autonomic Dysfunction which causes many issues. I had to have my esophagus dilated again, an endoscopy to recheck a gi bleed, g tube for venting switched out, and colonoscopy due to polyp history. Thank goodness no more polyps this time. My throat is sore, but will get better. My g tube button was starting to become buried, according to the dr. My colon was significantly tortuous. Will be seeing a colorectal surgeon soon to discuss options. Make it a great day everyone!!

    No More Medical Gaslighting!!

    Just read, or should I say, listened to, a great article on medical gaslighting. It explains it the best I've ever heard. Many do not even realize what's happening when dr's are dismissive. Women and ethnic minorities are more likely to encounter this. If you do, find another dr. Do not let that dismissive dr, cause you to prolong the proper diagnosis, or overlook your symptoms.

    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.🥺💚🙏🏽
