Another Day, another “you should start a blog” type comment.
Originally from close friends, then from my mum. But today, it came from a nurse. I don’t know why but this one pushed me to do it.
I’m engaged to Tom. A 6ft10″, 27 year old with a chronic condition. Usually when someone says chronic condition you think of illnesses such as Cystic Fibrosis or Asthma.
You don’t think of Gastroparesis.
Gastro – paresis. Literally meaning Stomach – Paralysis.
Tom has gastroparesis. Our lives are filled with sick buckets, doctors appointments and tubes. Lots and lots of tubes. Our living room looks like the store room in a hospital and our little boy, Archie (2), has an obsession with nurses.
Tom also has a strange habit of turning the simplest tasks into incredibly funny stories. So I’m gunna share some of the funny, and not so funny, stories with you.
