My birthday was a day like all other days. Just came and passed. I am blessed to have friends from Canada, U.S. and Australia, who actually remembered that day, althought they live thousand miles away! I didn't have a cake (LOL) but we did have lots of ice cream (chocolate with caramel fudge) well, not too healthy, I admit, but I love it. These days I eat only soups and salads (adding daily just a small amount of carbs & protein) because I found that the only food my stomach can digest (due to gastroparesis). I guess that is the reason I love sugarfree & lowfat ice cream and yogurt.
My gastroparesis is a complication that first occured 10 years ago. I felt sick to my stomach (nausea), it hurt and I could digest very slowly (it took 18h for a light supper). Nowadays, my forgotten complication came visiting my life again. I have the same symptoms all over again. I am somewhat disappointed but I try to stay optimistic. I guess I blame my psychological "state of mind" (stress) the last 6 months, for all that (I tend to think that everything is my fault!) but sometimes I see no way out to my situation. Who knows, maybe brighter days will come and my gastro will forget all about me.
