KRISTEN'S PERSONAL STORY

November 16, 2016 Gastroparesis
City : Houston PostalCode : 77018 

Hi! This is partly my story, but really my son's story. See my 2 year old has gastroparesis, a redundant colon, reflux and a dairy intolerance. Gosh, i feel like a GI specialist now!


I don't know where to start and I really don't know how to keep it to 500 words.


It's been a long journey the past two years. We have been to every urgent care and ER in the city. I don't think I've slept in two years either. 


But, I don't want to talk about that. It's our history now. He is 2 and he is fine. I tell myself this at least three or four times a day.


He is fine.


He is chronic now, so my hope of it going away isn't possible. But, we have a great doctor (this is key) and it is managed. He takes medication 9 times a day and that's not counting the medicine for his asthma or iron deficiency (fun little by-products of everything else).


He is fine.


If I say it enough it will be true. But in all honesty he is. His growth is normal, hovers around the 30th percentile mark for both height and weight. He started daycare a few weeks ago and he loves it. No one would know if we didn't tell them. He hits al of his milestones. The doctors say he defies all odds. I say he is stronger than anyone knows. He is full of life and such an amazing person to be around.


In my darkest hour--when I don't think things will be fine--I imagine him being 25 and living in NY (because he's a model of course). I call him to find out if he has pooped for the day and he gets made at me for asking. I laugh at this and come back to reality. And I'm able to carry on. 


I hate this disease. It's silent and it's debilitating.


My heart goes out to any new parents going through this and I would be happy to help in any way I can.

Good day Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com OR call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
