You Don't Look Sick: Running with Gastroparesis

I was suffering from unrelenting nausea and excruciating pain when this picture was taken at runDisney's Princess Half Marathon. In retrospect, it probably wasn't the best idea to try to run a half marathon after I had a feeding tube surgically placed just days before. Even though I was struggling with gastroparesis, I didn't want this chronic illness to stop me from living (and running).

Are you living with gastroparesis or another chronic illness?
