Life is hard enough

I suffer from gastrointestinal problems and have recently been diagnosed with gastroparesis but after only trying medications that did not work the idea was changed. Based on what sounded like very little knowledge. I am home and struggling because there isn’t enough research out there to help diagnose these things let alone treat and maybe cure. I have suffered since I was a child with the same problems, now age makes it difficult to handle. I have a daughter who just turned 12 years old. I have a life to return to. I’d rather be worrying about my daughter than fighting and getting frustrated and depressed because I am afraid I may pass before she turns 18. I cannot afford a life change life is hard enough without the uncertainty of life.. please raise more awareness, look more into it. Spread all these stories. I’m broken from having to watch my daughter shed tears every time I return from the hospital as if she’s expecting me not to return one day. She’s scared and she’s young. Please.

About the author: Gastroparesis: Fighting For Change Admin

We created this website to provide the public with additional information regarding Gastroparesis. It is our goal to connect users with our Facebook advocacy group, “Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change.”

Our Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change Facebook group was formed to unite people with Gastroparesis and other digestive and motility disorders to work for change. It is not a typical GP support group, as we do not discuss personal medical issues. Rather, we established this as a place where members can discuss ideas regarding our mission, vision, goals, needs, services, and resources to work toward solutions. So if you want to make a difference for our GP community, we encourage you to share your ideas! Additionally, we need you to help us fight for changes in legislation! Also, you can help raise funds! Finally, you can help spread awareness! Please join our main group. We would love to have you!

You can find links to our Community Page and our Advocacy Group on our Resources Tab.

In order to accomplish our goals, we will be sharing many ways you can get involved on our Campaigns Tab.
