Happy Holidays

Dear Readers,

   Well, my Fall edition fell through, my apologies. These past to years I have been fighting Gastroparesis. My stomach longer can empty properly. This cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, heartburn, and weight lost.  You also fill up fast on food after just a few bits of food. 

   September saw me for the first time with these symptoms lasting longer than a few days; truth is we are now on week nine and I have lost nearly twenty pounds. I have been trying to power through this but fell a tad short.

   There are some new things changing here at the Purple Rose, as you may have noticed I took down my Akathisia story. In its place I will be sharing my Gastroparesis struggles in a journal like form. I hope this will do like Akathisia did and provide a human touch to someone out there. This does not mean I don't want you to stop sending in your stuff. I enjoy hearding from those of you that write into me.

Happy Holidays,

  Christyne Anne
