Happy Thanksgiving “MY DEAR FAMILY 2006”
I am bringing y’all forward with us to The Thanksgiving 2017 and praying / hoping our #GPReporting #Advocacy can bring positivity & optimism with love to all this year!
In March of 2006 I received a permanent Gastric Electrical Stimulator it was a part of my #ChronicLife with #MotilityDisorders #Gastroparesis #CIP #ColonicInertia #MitochondrialMalabsorption #POTS My “Gastric Pacemaker” wasn’t a fit for me because of my complications and complicated issues with these diseases! I do not think my issues should dissuade someone else from their chance at a better quality of life! A chance at a life without debilitating nausea, vomiting, pain, and less dehydration & malnutrition!
So, in 2006, I took the opportunity to express what I feel like should be an everyday THANK YOU!
I also wanted the family, of which y’all are now a part of our #GPFamily, to know ->Thanksgiving is not about the food! It is the joy!
We are engaging in the most amazing holiday ever! Especially, if we can reinforce the main course! The visiting with the Family! We actually could skip the shopping altogether! If we could exchange names during Thanksgiving and agree to just do the kids and our “one adult to take the “Pressure” off and increase the joy of the holidays!”
Allowing us to go back to the core of the holidays and their meaning would be phenomenal!
May you all be blessed with comfort and strength<3
This was my letter to my family in November of 2006,
