THANK YOU to everyone for making yesterday a record setting day for Adventures With Gastroparesis! Yesterday, the blog had the most visitors and views since it’s inception (only a few months ago). We’ve also passed over 100 Facebook Likes and over 160 followers through all mediums (Facebook, Twitter, & WordPress). The blog has also had views from over 15 countries!
A couple of months ago when I started this blog, I was hoping that it would help a few people. I was hoping that it would help people be able to better communicate what daily life is like living with Gastroparesis. I wanted to share the Gastroparesis ups, downs, fun, painful, happy, sad, and everything in between. No holds barred. No punches pulled. A realistic window into how Gastroparesis changes every aspect of your life.
So often our caregivers try incredibly hard to understand what we go through. Why not provide them with something that they can read to understand? We get so tired of talking about GP with our caregivers, so why not provide them with something that only takes 5-10 minutes a day to read in order to gain a better understanding. I was hopefully that I could achieve effectively communicating what a GPer life is like. However, I never dreamed that I would have so many followers from so many different countries in such a short amount of time. I also never dreamed of all the heartfelt comments and encouragement I have received from all of you!
All of the support and encouragement has made me realize that sharing my adventures is making a difference. It has made me realize that there is a purpose to me having Gastroparesis. It has made me realized that I am just beginning to discover and unlock my true purpose in life. It has made me realize that my goal in life is to increase knowledge of Gastroparesis and what our daily life entails.
Thank you to everyone for believing in me! Thank you for following my adventures! Thank you for sharing my adventures with others! Thank you (most of all) for making me realize that I am accurately portraying what a GPer life is like!
I promise not to let you down!
