Day 4 — Roller-coaster of a flare

Day 4 of ‪#‎GastroparesisAwarenessMonth‬! Once you find a management plan that works for you, a lot of symptoms can subside or at least can allow you to become more functional in society. But even if you do the exact same thing everyday, there are other factors that can provoke a‪ #‎FlareUp‬ of your ‪#‎Gastroparesis‬ symptoms. Since there is no ‪#‎cure‬ we are still working with band aid solutions. The symptoms are very‪#‎debilitating‬ and can hinder your normal activities. What you could normally do with ease can actually take every ounce of energy during a flare-up.

It’s very frustrating not being able to get off the rollercoaster and it’s awful living in fear, always second guessing every move you make. But you eventually learn to reserve your energy for what’s important because you know not everything can be accomplished on the low energy you run off of. 

We need to ‪#‎CureGP‬ and spread ‪#‎awareness‬.
Help spread the word. Thanks!
