A Win: Day 4 #100PositiveDays

“Success will never be a big step in the future: Success is a small step taken just now.” – Jonatan Martensson

In case you don’t already know, it has been a rough couple years for me in terms of stomach issues. I have had complaints of stomach problems for 8 years, but it wasn’t until 2 1/2 years ago that I went gluten free. Even after going gluten free I have never completely felt 100% better. Recently I tested positive for fairly severe gastroparesis, which means I have delayed gut motility. My dietitian also thinks I have something called small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, which frequently occurs in patients with gastroparesis. The treatment is a sugar-free diet. Sugar-free, as in, no carbs, no ketchup, no pickles, honey, or cereal, or fruit juice… or happiness. Just kidding 🙂
