For Day 2 of Gastroparesis Awareness Month I wanted to spread the word of how debilitating the nausea can be. For me, Gastroparesis has forced me to have this feeling every day. Sometimes it lasts for just a little while but other times it can last all day… sometimes for days at a time. A majority of the time food is the source. There’s some days though where I won’t eat anything at all and I still feel like I’m going to vomit at any given moment.
It’s hard to function when you don’t feel like yourself, let alone if you feel like you’ve been spinning all day long. In the image below, I have included an imagery Exercise to allow those who don’t have Gastroparesis to take a Glimpse into our world. To close your eyes and force yourself to walk a day/week in our shoes.
