My first hand personal expeiriences with gastroparesis.
Gastroparieis has been a diagonses for me for the past 5 years. When I started Mommies Quiet Place (This website) I was just diagonsed and bed rested because I would wake up in the middle of the night in major pains under my ribs and I would vomit and puke so badly I would chocke in my sleep. I seem to have mastered the diet plan of gasteroparies suggested by the dr who treated me was to eat soft bland mushy foods basically anything given in a old age home to older people I am okay with digetsting foods. Gasteroparies is an inablity to digest foods properly. I foods stay in my stomach for 3 hours at a time sometimes just sitting there not moving along the digestive track. I have over the years blogged about the treatments and such experiments from smoothies I had a popular smoothie that I posted I dubbed the poop smoothie till this day a lot of people try looking it up I see the search term for it on my website. I took it down because a lot of people like to take off with the topics I write about as ideas for their own and although flattering it sucks becuase I would much rather the post be shared, liked or commented not just talked about among others in a private chat group as I've found. I had a different name and discovered things being said and found out that people were jealous of my illness of how it effects me of how I cope and manage to come across as being together. I really am not put together, things overhwilmed me as much as the next person infact sometimes more so and it's a daily struggle sometimes to force myself out of bed but I do it daily at 6 am and movicate my mini me out the door to the shcool bus. I am loosing my teeth from the acid and it does not matter if I eat how the doctor suggest or not it just is a slow painful natural part of this process because I didn't have the insurance to deal with any of the issues that was minor because I was focued on the major issues that my daughter was having. Now at 36 I am taking care of me fully living life having a social life, doing things for myself and even taking the time to connect with support group out side of the house so I wasn't alone. it's nice to know you are not alone and that is why I keep this blog up not for my glory or to even get credit but it would be nice for others to give credit where it is due. So often clinics start to watch bella and I for years and follow up on us because we are a rare few who have Digeorge and other issues that go alone with things not typical to digeorge. My daughter has a mild form of cp and I have gastroparises. Together that makes life intersting. Today I went to the dentist and I have a tooth infection I am on antibotics and then next friday I will have my tooth pulled out. I have done all that I could but at this point it's a loss cause. I have been working out going to the gym and working on body building repairing my muscles in my legs I can leg press 115 pounds. My arms I can only lift 10 lb. I run 2 miles daily for the past 8 days and I haven't thrown up I also haven't had much time to eat excess foods. I eat dinner with family and then out the door I go to work out. I'm still trying to find that life balance house is falling apart all around me and soon Adam will start his new position and I need to sit and figure things out and how I am going to manage it all. Bella has been a handful she's turned into a teenager she will be 12 April 27 and she is getting rather mouthy some days at bed time and in the am. The trigger times of the day where not to many people see the adhd issues unless they come into the home and see it all in action. To the outside blogging world people become jealous I am married with a kid and have a happy normal existance in their minds. I learned not to explaim mysel fto anyone. People form the foundation assume that I don't have mamy issues and I let them think that if they want to know I have my website where I share about most of the stuff I have gone though. I am done with writing my book. It's in draft form and I'm just not sure if I want a publisher to get credit where it's not due or to sell it as a ebook and others get credit where it's not due by them selling copy's of it marking it up or down. Publishing is challanging and I'm not sure I'm ready to deal with that world. I think I might just stick to publishing on my blog. If I find the right publisher some day I will know if that happens but I never step out to do this blog to earn a dollar off the syndrome. Infact my readers have helped my daughter get to top earner for her school which I am so excitef for her they had her come up during march's reading month and she was so excited and a litle emotional. I love seeing her many emotions I'm reminded to be thankful for her spunk and zest for life and determination. With that she's inspired so many others. I have showned her that along with my husband. 14 years together and bella being 12 now I have been coming into contact with a lot of others from the past often reminded of how far I have come. Thanks so much for reading and the support.
