11,000 Views ~ Thank You!

In 13 months we have reached 11,000 people in 60 Countries at   Even though we haven’t had much time to keep posting articles and information for you, we are happy to know that people keep finding us and coming back for more info.

One reason that we haven’t been so attentive to our website is that we have created a second one!  You can find it at   This second site will run along side this one, but it will not have the personal blogs that you can find here.   It will also be aimed more for a professional look and feel, as we have found out that some medical professionals are giving out our website.   The options are limitless (almost), so feel free to take a look and let us know what you may want to see on there.

thank you 11000

Thank You 10,000 Times!

Thank You 10,000 Times!

In 1 year we have reached 58 Countries and reached 10,000 viewers! All of this could not have been done without all of your support. You are what drives us to keep going, to keep up the research, to find products that may help all of us and most of all to spread awareness.

For those of you that are on Facebook please ‘Like’ our page to keep up to date on even more GP info as well as inspirational quotes and jokes to keep us going:



With our year of posts at coming to an end soon, we are flabbergasted at the amount of support we have received.

We will continue to research different topics to bring you articles that you can count on and trust to help give you tips/ideas.

Of course we will also toss in a few personal stories, since you enjoying knowing that you are not alone on your journey.

As more ‘fighters’ send us THEIR stories we will continue to post them as well under the ‘fighters’ tab.

Lastly, when more resources come available we will certainly let you know and add those to the appropriate tab as well.

Birthday 2014


My birthday was on Feb 13th, but I wanted to extend a big hug to all of you for the birthday wishes.  Seemed like something was always getting in the way of me doing this post!  Better late than never?!


Anyway, for those of you that follow me on Facebook, I had a little over 100 Happy Birthday Messages, some with pictures and a few with videos!  I tried my best to respond to each and every one of you.




I never dreamed that I would receive so many, you almost had me in tears.   Several of you sent me cards in the mail which were greatly appreciated as well.  Even one was of my own creation that I sell on my store (a 12 pack is less than $1 per card).Image


So a belated round of thanks and hugs for thinking of me.  I plan to catch up on my blogging very soon!  But first a couple days this week I will be out of town, then a week home before I go on vacation for 2 weeks.   I will be blogging about that and taking some pics when I am there.  WE can’t have too much GP Awareness!!



Thank you 8,000 times!



We’ve reached 8,000 views!  It has been a long time since I have posted and I hope to get back to around May.  Your continued dedication and spreading the blogs that I write to others is greatly appreciated.  Also welcome are the wonderful comments and stories you write to us.  We love to know that you have walked away from an article that we write with having learned a little something new.  That is what we strive for and aim to help not only the Gastroparesis Community, but an person that can benefit from what we do here.  Thank you again!  We hope to not keep you waiting too long for a new post from us.

I have been so busy with the store (, working a few days a week, all the holiday stuff and sadly not feeling too good, that I have not had time to do the over-haul I wanted on here!

There are several ‘fighters’ that need to be added to the tab on top and a few tabs that need to be modified, among other things.

So thank you, for your continued support while I have been away. Now that the majority of major holidays are past us, it is my hope to be able to get more done here!

Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!!

A Thank You to the 6,500 Visitors and update on what I have been doing.

A Thank You to the 6,500 Visitors and update on what I have been doing.

I didn’t expect to see so many more visitors that showed up to this page in my absence. So a BIG “Thank You” for your continued support.

As you may know, we moved. That was not an easy move for us to make, which required a U-Haul, pickup truck and two car trailers driving for 2 days to our new home. I have yet to have time to blog about that. But it is on my ever growing list!

In the 2 months we have been here, I have picked up a part time job. Bit off more than my GP would allow me to work, so I had to cut back on hours. The place I work for KNEW about Gastroparesis, so I didn’t have to go through the whole spiel. The even better part was they understood I didn’t know what my limits (for hours) would be to maintain a good GP Lifestyle for me. We tackled it one day at a time and after all this time, I think we found what works for me.

If trying to work again wasn’t enough, along with learning a new town, getting everything under the sun changed address and new state wise, I decided to open up an on-line store with items I craft. So add store sales and crafting to my weekly chore list as well.

Sadly, my blog has taken a back burner and I am very sorry. The good new is, you can find me on Facebook where I have my Profile and 2 Pages. The one page is “Tats For Gastroparesis and Inspiration”. Which I am currently in the process of holding a contest for the ‘Best Inspirational Tattoo”. The other page is mostly to link my store and post the new products as they come in, with occasional jokes or inspirational pics. My FB Profile (mostly open to the public) is for the medical updates, supplement suggestions, coupons, jokes and personal stories, etc. Click on the CONTACT INFO TAB to find links.

I am also helping out G-PACT with their Pinterest Page and a few other individuals on Facebook for Gastroparesis Awareness and Moderator for a few groups.

Then on the days off that my husband has, we travel around to explore near by towns and just spend time together.

So, as you can see with all of this going on, I have fallen a little short on time to Blog. I really do miss it and I must get back into it!

Stay tuned for more and again THANK YOU for your continued support. I do receive a lot of heart felt messages and you are the reason I continue to do what I do!
