One morning  in March 2020 I made my coffee like any morning, not knowing that things would completely change in my life. I poured my  half and half as normal and within 30 minutes I had it thrown up. I totally dismissed it at day just thinking my body was being weird. But that was only the beginning and I started to feel more and more sick.   We started taking dairy, gluten, and sugar out of my diet. But very slowly my body started to reject really basic foods.  My weight started to fall and I was started to run out of ideas. Now almost 11 months later, I cant even count the amount of time I thrown up since then. 
Ive had two hospitalizations so far. October 2-8 2020 and January 19-25 2021. There is diagnosis yet. Only a really long list of symptoms.
 Ive had NJ tube placed for a month and now have a GJ tube. My weight is stable which is a win! 

Every day is really different but the goal is manage symptoms and really adjust to my new norm. I remain hopeful for getting a diagnosis and cant wait to get back to being healthy! Cant wait to eat big burger again!
