"This illness is to fatigue,
what a match is to a nuclear bomb.
It's an absurd mischaracterization!"

The waves have been big lately. I haven't been able to eat for over 3 weeks. This is the worst gastroparesis flare I've had in many years! I know how to deal with a flare that lasts a week. Usually they last 2-5 days. It's hard not to focus on the waves and panic. In light of that, I thought this was a great video to share today.


  1. Beautiful song, truly. But it makes me sad to know how awful you've been feeling lately. I love you, Melanie. <3

    1. Thank you Linda! It's a pretty rocky uphill climb in my journey right now. Love to you too!

  2. Oh, Melanie, I'm sorry. That is so hard. I will be praying for you.
