I do want to explain what has been going on with my family and why I haven't been on as much as I should. My two year old nephew has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. They did surgery but they aren't sure they got it all. You can actually read about it in my blog along with the type of cancer he has.

I'm trying to raise money for my step father's plane ticket to go out there and spend some time with River because I do not think he has a lot of time left. He starts chemo soon and I'm just struggling with the entire thing. I wish I could take it from him because I would, no second thoughts or questions asked. If you could, please share my blog entry. I would appreciate it, more than you know.

Information about the vagus nerve, what it does, what it controls, and why it causes so many problems other than ‪#‎gastroparesis‬ when it's damaged.

I wrote this today. I hope it helps some of you, who are mourning the loss of loved ones. It's my own rituals and things I do when I lose someone, since I can't really go to funerals and things vomiting. Having a chronic illness is hard, especially when you lose someone to one and you have one yourself. I hope this helps and I want you to know you're in my thoughts:

This is part one of my gastric stimulator article. This article includes personal stories from people brave enough to share their experiences with me. Part two will be more about research about the gastric stimulator. However, here are people's experiences, so far, good and bad:

There has been a lot of stigma within the #GPCommunity of bullying, tearing people down. and just overall #GPShaming. There is not a scale for how sick you are - it's not a competition. It's also NOT a number's game for "support" groups ... it shouldn't be how many people you can recruit, it should be able helping those people. I've been bullied several times online by so called "support" groups and it's horrible and makes you question yourself. It's hard to be ganged up on so I wrote a blog article about it:

http://www.emilysstomach.com/2016/01/gp-support-groups-vs-gp-support-groups.html

I want to take steps to get rid of this stigma and the bullying in support groups. This shouldn't happen. Support groups should be for support. <3

I have made a new group, a sister group to this one. This group is a support group for GPers who have been abused/bullied in some way, by a relative, spouse, friends, etc. I want to say that this include online bullying as well. It's hard to be ganged up on and it hurts. This group is a safe place where people can share their stories, vent, and receive support from one another so that they can move past horrible things that have happened to them. The group can be found on Facebook:

http://www.facebook.com/groups/gpabuseandbullying/

If you are having issues with abuse and/or bullying, and need a safe space to talk about it, we invite you to join. We are trying to help those who need it and get rid of this stigma of bullying in the ‪#‎GPCommunity‬. This is one, of many, many steps to do just that. Plus, we want to help you because you're NOT alone! <3

This is my friend Melissa's blog.  

I have also made another blog entry about strife within support groups and #GP being used as a competition:  http://www.emilysstomach.com/2016/01/gp-support-groups-vs-gp-support-groups.html

Please share. <3
