Gender Female

Introduction I am living with idiopathic Gastroparesis with has affected both my stomach, small intestines, colon and bladder. I was diagnosed in May 2008 after experiencing symptoms for over a year. I am a licensed pharmacy technician and worked for a non-profit humanitarian organization. I have the support of my husband Jacob as well as my family. I have learned more about life and myself through my diagnosis than any textbook could provide. Each day presents a new lesson for me, whether it be patience or perseverance. It may not be easy but who said life was suppose to be?
