Can strength be a weakness,
while some weakness is a strength?
Being brave while frightened,
yet frightened because I "seem" to be so brave!
Fearless about the journey and future that lies ahead,
yet thinking about the future fills me with fear.
Speechless about the everyday non-stop pain that I feel,
yet not enough words to express the pain's reality.
Crying over the loss of friends from this rotten disease,
yet friends I've met as a result help keep me from crying.
Reaching out for a hand I can hopefully help,
while also stretching to find a helping hand for myself.
Striving to force nutrition to increase my energy,
yet all my energy's exhausted from trying to increase my nutrition.
My body and mind can only handle so much before reaching the breaking point,
but can reaching the breaking point finally heal my body and mind?
Taking risks to find positive value in life,
yet heartbreaking devastation when risks fail.
Searching for answers for so many questions,
yet the only answer may simply be, who asks the right question!
Determined to be an inspiration for others,
when others' inspiration are what keep me determined.
Fighting with all I have to help find a cure,
when lack of a cure is what actually enables me to keep fighting.

Today marks the beginning of Gastroparesis Awareness Month. Our advocacy group has been busy the past few weeks requesting Proclamations from each of our states. (NC did approve request for Gastroparesis Awareness Week)
In the spirit of raising awareness, I chose to create my own personal video this year. The purpose of the video is to show how Gastroparesis can unexpectedly and drastically impact someone's life as well as the rest of their family. This feat was not easy. In fact, it was a difficult task because I hate seeing myself in pictures or on videos. However, awareness is so critical.
