This post is just venting. Sometimes you just need a space to complain.
This gastroparesis is a real learning curve.
What does my body like? What doesn’t it? Are these symptoms from something I ate a few hours ago or is my tummy mad for other reasons?And I keep forgetting to take my Reglan before I eat, like a dummy.
I know its going to take more than two weeks for me to figure this out, since it took me over a year (at least!I have no clue how long I’d been blaming these symptoms on my endometriosis) to be diagnosed, but I get fleeting moments of feeling good again and that only makes me notice the pain and discomfort so much more. I hadn’t even realized how much pain I was in until it stopped (thanks to following GP dietary guidelines).
I meet with a dietician on Monday. I really hope she’ll be able to help me get a new handle on my body, and the food I can provide it.
I have a feeling I’ll be relearning my body for a long time to come.
