In One Moment …
In one moment, someone’s life will be changed and affected by a digestive motility disorder. Symptoms are usually absent from social conversations and, yet, they are very real and paramount in the sufferer’s life.
It can be challenging to balance all the emotional and physical consequences that may result from living with digestive motility disorders. Not being able to eat normally, maintaining employment, raising children, finding and keeping relationships, going to school, medical insurance issues, financial difficulties, social engagements and trying to live a quality life may all be part of the patient and family member’s struggles. Many feel very much alone, isolated, lost and frustrated because no one can understand what they are going through.
It is the quest of AGMD to provide education, information, resources, advocacy, support and hope to all those impacted by digestive motility disorders.
