Two of the biggest symptoms of Gastroparesis are nausea and vomiting. These two symptoms can be debilitating to a person and make it unbearable to complete otherwise simple tasks.
For me, Gastroparesis had forced me to have this feeling every day. Sometimes lasting for just a little while but other times 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.
Remember to spread the word about Gastroparesis. You could be saving a life by acknowledging someone’s symptoms. #GastroparesisAwarenessMonth
