Gastroparesis Warrior

27547644_15179617370_r.jpegHi, my name is Michelle Anderson (I go by Meesh). About 8+ years ago I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis,  which basically means my stomach doesn't work..it takes for ever for it to empty and I don't absorb nutrients well, if at all. I have a gastric stimulator (stomach pacemaker) that is suppose to help, but so far it has not done much good. I'm constantly sick with nausea and vomiting and in pain. I'm 5'10 in and I weigh 118 pounds and the weight continues to fall off.  The doctors dont know how to "fix" the problem and ive been told that I have one of the most severe  cases of this "disease". My life is full of doctor appointments, they talk of sending me to SLC but I can't afford that.  Also doctors here in town don't even want to touch/ help me because my disease is so complex. At one point they were going to put a feeding  tube in me but decided that would do more harm than good,~ Long story short, I'm starving to death. And I'm scared because not only do I have my health to worry about, I have a tremendous amount of medical debt to deal with, along with regular "normal" debt.  I live off Social Security,  which barely covers my rent. Bill collectors have become my best friends, in fact this year they are on  my Christmas card list. I have a beautiful  granddaughter who means the world to me. And a daughter who is my love, life, and my light. I'm just not ready to leave them yet.
Ive never done anything like this before, ask for help, and I  don't expect much because I know times are difficult for so
many people right now. What you can manage for a donation,  I can tell you it will mean more than words can say, i will be eternally grateful. It will help me pay the electrical Bill, catch up on some medical bills (right now doctors won't even see me because I have Bills at their offices).  Anything helps and  is much appreciated, thank you for taking the time to even read this.. I wish you all love, light, happiness, and good health my friends.
