Wow, never in a million years did I think this blog would take a totally different turn. I can assure you this, I will still run. In fact, running with Gastroparesis is actually good! Running aids with digestion, and I need all the help I can get.
I have taken the past two weeks to accept the fact that I have a chronic illness. However, it will not define who I am. I am a child of God, wife, mother, friend, sister, runner, who happens to live with a chronic illness.
I know that there will be good days and bad days, and I will try and make the most of each one. I have recently switched doctors and am meeting my new one, at the end of the month.
I am not going to lie and tell you this was easy to accept. There were many tears shed and "Why me?" moments. I have to trust God and know that I have GP for a reason.
Bless her heart.
