I am 22 years old and started losing weight about 3 months ago. It was unexplainable because I am so active and was always in such good shape. About 2 months ago, I started getting extremely dizzy, stopped eating, and was very nauseated and began throwing up anytime I tried to eat. I was diagnosed with GP 6 days ago. I have had a hard time accepting this chronic diagnosis and started eating foods I wasn't supposed to because I didn't want to accept that I had GP. This was NOT a good idea, it only made things worse! Since then, I have learned to accept that I have a chronic disease and am reading literature to manage my syptoms. If you guys haven't read the book "Living (well!) with Gastroparesis," read it! It's extremely uplifting and gives many good recipes with GP friendly meals. I look forward to reading all of your posts and following fellow GPers stories about acceptance, management, and support.
