Hey Dudes! My name is Gastrosaurus, Ro for short, bro. I’m the Gastroparesis monster. Green is my favorite color ? and shout out to Missy (Misdiagnosis monster); she’s super cool, bro. I have trouble eating and I get really nauseous ? all the time, bro. Super harsh!

When I eat, I often feel nauseous and have to throw up, so not cool. When I don’t eat I am nauseous too. Because my body doesn’t digest my food I’m easily malnourished.

So bro, just because Diabetes is the most common disease associated with Gastroparesis, everyone thinks you have to be Diabetic to have Gastroparesis. Bro, it’s simply not true!!

I enjoy cruising around on my skateboard?, it’s much easier to get around that way. It costs me less energy than walking.

This is me dude:
