#Gastroparesis a #DigestiveDisease
#ChronicWarriors use many methods to
uplift our spirits –
We are NOT our diagnosis. 🙂
WE ARE our unique Beautiful. Courageous, Advocators,
#GPReporters, seeing ourselves as cogs
in a big wheel of advocacy.
Yet, we live in our lives as our truth in our real
World. A world where touch, in person, communication, matters even more than it did before our diagnosis. Are you saying to yourself? I thought you said, “you are not your diagnosis?” You are correct! If a bull almost ran you down in the middle of a town, did you become the bull? Or did your situational awareness increase? I believe this is how a lot of Chronic Warriors live. We are, out of necessity, better at research, more discerning of the information given to us, and the largest lesson? We learn doctors are not all qualified just because they have a medical degree. Time teaches you.. When deciding upon a new doctor or a procedure speak to three people who have knowledge of the Dr/procedure/ doctor performing the procedure or surgery. You are interviewing the person in care of your life. The thing you have only one of and your due diligence will be worth your thoughtful preparation.
We must spend more time in conversation about our lives
outside of our diagnosis than in our diagnosis..
Why? Because I Believe our cells act differently w/
positive, inside a body of multifaceted conversation,
filled with touchstones of uplifting thoughts all still centered
around service, goodness, kindness, and doing unto others as
you would have done unto you. #warriors #spoonies
