Yo dudes! I’m Gastrosaurus, Ro for short, bro. I’m the Gastroparesis monster. Green is my favorite color 💚 and I like to practice sick moves on my board! 🛹 Sometimes I can’t ride though. I have trouble eating and I get really nauseous 🤢 because of my Gastroparesis. Bro, it can really harsh my mood.

Most of the time when I eat I feel like I’m going to hurl. It’s so whack! 🤮 Even when I don’t eat I still feel sick. I can’t win! My body doesn’t digest my food the right way so I’m easily malnourished too and yo, it’s not fun at all, bro. 🥺

Oh, and newsflash, bro, just because Diabetes is the most common disease associated with Gastroparesis, everyone thinks you have to be Diabetic to have it. Not true. You can have Gastroparesis without being Diabetic. #TrueStoryBro

So, like, this is stuff about me, bro:

Name: Gastrosaurus

Nickname: Ro

Represents: Gastroparesis

Favorite Color: Green

Superpower: Can go for days without eating

Prone to: Malnutrition, nausea, vomiting, reflux, loss of appetite
