Never take for granted what is before you

What is my daily life like living with gastroparesis?

It’s like playing cards. You have an ace in the hand. You feel like you may win today only to find out that ace is a club to knock you down.

Nauseating moments, pain sucking the energy out of you, and being hungry and full at the same time is all part of the game.

I have moderate gastroparesis and a higher tolerance for illness due to other issues. I know mine is not the worst. I know my issue is not the best. My thought living with disease is this….

Never take for granted what is before you. Something as simple, but important, as eating and not being sick is not a given, it is a blessing. So, I deal with it and hope every day, I can do something to play MY ace.
