Life Takes Guts - @reneesfight

Patient Leader

Since being diagnosed with Gastroparesis caused by Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Dysautonomia, I have gone into Gastrointestinal Failure and now rely on a surgical feeding and drainage tube, and a central line going to my heart to deliver Total Parenteral Nutrition and fluids daily. So this is my life. It is different, it is scary, but I am here. I felt so alone until I met some amazing people online who are going through the same thing as me! I realised that nobody around me had heard of my condition, so I spoke up to educate. Even some doctors were clueless. Here I am, advocating for myself and others, sharing the ups and downs, and showing that you can still LIVE despite being cureless
