Radioactive eggs

I ate radioactive eggs for breakfast today. Intentionally.

It was part of a medical test that took nearly 5 hours and determined that I have gastroparesis, a digestive disorder that slows or stops the emptying of food from the stomach.

Gastroparesis is why I feel like I have the stomach flu 365 days a year. It’s also why I struggle to eat anything and always feel nauseated. Though it sucks to rack up another chronic illness diagnosis, I appreciate having an answer to why I feel so awful all the time. There is no cure, only treatments to help mitigate symptoms. But still, a diagnosis is progress.

These fellow chronic illness warriors get it.

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was radioactive eggs! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!
