Day 1 of Gastroparesis Awareness Month!

It’s day 1 of ‪#‎GastroparesisAwarenessMonth‬! With more ‪#‎awareness‬ we can spread the word, help others, and find a cure for ‪#‎Gastroparesis‬. Help spread awareness by sharing with everyone you know. Someone may be suffering symptoms and not even know how to approach their situation.

I dealt with my symptoms for 7 months before I found a doctor that could diagnose me correctly I spent an additional 5 months suffering through symptoms, different medications, and side effects before I had a pacemaker placed. Then 2 more months until I am where I am today– finally being able to eat on my own again. I still have good days and bad ones but without that doctor’s help I would be under 100 lbs and slowly ‪#‎starving‬ to death. It sounds dramatic– but that’s because this #invisibleillness can become extreme if not correctly diagnosed and managed. Help spread the word. Thanks! #CureGP
