Catherine Hughes

As I sit here, hundreds of miles away from my home, family and friends. Waiting for more appointments tomorrow, hoping that this time I will get answers. Feeling very discouraged after several years of battling an invisible ailment that I may never feel like I used too, again or actually get help. The people who love me have watched me literally waste away because as much as I want to eat and am hungry my body hates anything I put in my stomach, I have lost 65lbs in my struggles to eat. I live with a fever everyday and constant debilitating pain. After exhausting all of the resources in my own state my cousin has generously driven me somewhere else in a desperate search for help and answers.  I want nothing more than to be able to eat food again, and go back to work, and help my husband take care of our house, and actually be able to leave my house without fear that I'm going to be doubled over clutching my stomach the whole time praying to vomit but it never coming. I refuse to give up, I will feel better, but any support is always welcome. Much love to you all
