Hi

This is the first blog I have written. i have a contition called Gastroparesis or paralasis of the digestive system. It causes severe pain, nausea, severe vomiting,bloatibg,belching, malnutrition.
I have suffered from this since 2008. At first the hospitals said they didn't know what was wrong with me. I was told by one Dr that they may never find out what was wrong and I would just get worse until they would have to put an NG tuble in to feed me. I went home devastated...

Had a little mini-vacation at my sister's house for about a week, and am back in time for school to start. Just sent the kids off for their first day. My youngest tried on at least three variations of clothes until he settled on one. And my eldest was disappointed he couldn't wear one of his new pants because the washer didn't get all the "sticky stuff" off from the size sticker on the back.

I guess I will have to make sure there is food on the table earlier, but life isn't perfect. And, my husband who is a diabetic, more than likely was going through a similar problem, although if his BS is high, he can be a tyrant, too. Well, you can guess the chaos that ensued.
