This blog helped me learn to cope with several difficult diagnoses. While I’m still learning, it doesn’t seem like as much of a struggle anymore. I feel like I’ve adjusted… found acceptance within myself.
To that end, I feel that this blog has served its purpose. I’m now moving on to other projects, more creative ones that I’ve put off because of stress or pain or just plain old fear of failure.
This blog will stay up for the time being as it may contain useful information for those learning to live with Gastroparesis or needing to know others have gone through the multi-year search for help and understanding. I can finally accept that I have Fibromyalgia, that it’s a real thing and see how so many of my other already-diagnosed problems are tied into it and are recognized symptoms of Fibro. I hope others reach this acceptance stage in their journey, too.
