Gastroparesis Awareness Month, 2018


August is Gastroparesis Awareness Month. This year, I want to celebrate those who have fought relentlessly against this illness, because it IS a battle. 

Please post pictures of yourself wearing green in support of those who are battling this illness. You can post them to the wall and I will make an album to put on my page and I would also like to include it in my blog (www.emilysstomach.com).

I am also asking GP Warriors for their stories from the Emergency Room, Doctor's visits, Pharmacy visits, and anything that will bring awareness to Gastroparesis Warriors being treated like drug seekers. We need awareness to this issue. Most of us are in tons of pain, we vomit, we have no energy, but everyone is different and that's why it is so hard to find proper treatments and a cure. Here is my request for ER and Medical Stories: http://emily-scherer.squarespace.com/erstories/

Please help us during this awareness month to get awareness out there. Social media is a great way to do that!
