ALYSON'S PERSONAL STORY

November 22, 2016 Gastroparesis
Satate : Texas 

My name is Alyson, only 21 years old and very recently diagnosed with gastroparesis. I'm hoping posting my story will help me connect with others who can offer me a little hope to my life. Ive had on and off symptoms of IBS my entire life, but it wasn't until a couple months ago I started getting awful bloating to the point where I found it hard to move, the extreme nausea that followed, the painful acid reflux and heartburn and the weight loss. As a petite girl who has never weighed over 100 pounds, I definitely couldn't afford to lose 20 pounds. But nonetheless, I have. After all the lab tests done, an ER visit, an upper endoscopy and X-ray, they have concluded I have gastroparesis. i see a lot of people saying to remain hopeful, but honestly this has already taken away many aspects of my life, its extremely difficult to have even a glimmer of hope. I had to take a leave off work, I never take my dog out, I hardly leave the house, I have to take 4 different medicines each day just to be able to function half way. Can anyone tell me it gets better? I guess I'm just terrified that this is going to be my life forever and I'll have to quit my job and stay at home for the rest of my days. I'm very scared, everyone. i love my life and I wish to have it back. Please offer some hope.

Hi Alyson, I am a survivor of gastroparesis and hope to help you. It is very hard to get over, but its possible. I had it for a little longer than a year and a half, and at first it does seem to take over your life. I missed several months of school, couldn't get out of bed, and eventually almost stopped eating and drinking completely, losing weight rapidly, and was threatened with a feeding tube. I almost lost my friends and became severely depressed, but I'm glad that I went through it, because it showed how strong I was. But nevertheless I'm sorry for what you are going through, no one should have to go through it. The hard thing about gastroparesis is that it's unpredictable, you have good and bad days, you have different severities, and gastroparesis can last to as short as a couple months or a life time. However, I will say with proper dieting I was able to overcome a high severity of gp (gastroparesis.) But I do know that most of the battle with gp is mental, because with my depression it made it several times worse. What I suggest I on a good day, write a note to yourself about how strong you are and how you know you'll be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel (and if you belong to a religion, than you can incorporate that in there too.) Now when you are having a really bad day, read that. This helped me so much, along with writing my feelings down in a diary. Another thing is to keep caring and understanding family and friends close. While they might not understand, they can still help. Hopefully this helped!

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. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
