  1. That’s awesome that you are able to keep a full-time, fast-paced position! I have not worked in some years and I’m trying to get back into the workplace, even if it’s only part-time. I have mild-idiopathic GP but it took 7 frustrating years before I had a correct diagnosis. So far I’ve been having a flare-up now every 3-4 months as compared to everyday to once a week some years ago… but I still go through periods that I get nauseous and while I might not vomit like I did I still feel awful for a day or a couple. Frustrating it still is…

    • Hi Jen,
      I also have idiopathic GP. The flairs have been becoming more frequent, longer, and worse. I am hoping to continue working & feel lucky to have an employer who truly works with me when I flair.
      Thanks again for following the blog & I’m happy that you can relate to it!

  2. Great blog! I love this post and also get massage therapy from time to time that helps so much. I’ve never had the castor oil massage but have used packs at home for relief. I noticed you are trying acupuncture soon, something else I’ve found a wonderful component to our GP “toolkit.” For the first 5 years of my diagnosis I managed pretty well and even starting health coaching others. Recently went downhill and working my way back up with the help of TPN.
    I have a blog to at http://www.journeywithgp.com and would love to share this post soon when I write again. Hang in there and stay strong!

    • Thanks Stephanie!
      I’m glad to hear that acupuncture is helpful. I will definitely be blogging about it once I try it.
      I also enjoyed checking out your blog! Feel free to share anything you would like from here.
      Stay strong!
