Hi there and Welcome to Healingwell,
I am glad that you have found us. We are like a big family here and we all look after and support each other through the hard times. I think that is what makes HealingWell so popular.
I too have a chronic illness. I suffer from epilepsy and it is very unpredictable at times so I can understand how frustrating it can be at times. We have some members who have lost faith due to depression and refound it so please dont think this is the end of the road. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I jus cant tell you how long the tunnel is.
Thanks so much for repying :) It helps to know I am not alone. I have been suffering with gastroparesis and GERD for 4 years now, and it has not gotten better only worse. I really thank you for listening i feel so alone with this...thank you
As Karen has said, you are certainly not alone. We have over 53,000 members on healingwell in total and Depression is one of the biggest forums. Have you looked at the GERD forum? Here is the link if you have not: http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=45 They provide some really great support over there as well. You may also find some support for the gastroparesis as well since I am guessing (no, really... I am guessing!) that the 2 go hand in hand.
Feel free to vent here any time you like.
