I'm new to the gastroparesis diagnosis. I believe it was just last month that a gastric emptying test confirmed it for me. I've been in and out of the ER for quite a while with abdominal pain and no answers, so I'm glad to finally have a diagnosis. It's been a difficult diet adjustment for me. My dietitian recommended a liquid diet for a month before trying anything else. When I do eat anything else it's painful. I'm frustrated with it. How did you get past the diet change initially?

      It's a process. And as mentioned above it's always a struggle. I've had allergies and gut issues my whole life and it's interesting to look at how I've changed. I think my advice for recent changes is to give yourself some grace. The second is find new favorites. Experiment with juice flavors. Find what joy you can in that. I know that seems crazy but if you look at it as a way to make yourself better and have some fun, it so helps. Now that I'm back on solid food I can have about 20 ish foods? I eat pizza, tacos, stir fry. Lol my friends laugh because it looks nothing like those foods to them but they do to me and that's all that matters!

      Unfortunately You Don’t Get Over The Changes. I Am a Glutton for Punishment…I watch The PBS Cooking Shows. And Live Vicariously
