  • Mrs.

    Please pray for the 10-year-old boy next door, Quinn, who was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis. He has been having severe sphincter spasms and cannot get into the hospital due to the corona virus. Please pray that our Savior, Jesus Christ, who healed the blind and raised the dead, will heal him so that his family can go on to live their normal lives again.

    We ask this in the name of our Heavenly Redeemer. Amen

  • gastroparesis/constipation... losing weight fast. I am Scared.

    I am in Need of someone to pray for me. I pray myself everyday. I am in bed all day everyday. I go to doctors, but am told there is nothing that can be done. I am losing weight. In pain under my left rib. I try and eat. I don't know what to do anymore. I am a widow with a 16 year old autistic son, who is as scared as I am. I am so depressed and all the doctors tell me is that I Need to take antidepressants, and I will get better.. I have tried a few, but they made me worse, and I now have such severe anxiety, that I can't sleep but an hour or so, before I wake up in pain and panic. I have no one. just my son. No friends to ask for help. No family to ask for help. My husband is passed. I am scared. I am dying. I lost 50 lbs in the past 4 months, and all I am told is, that it is in my head. I had the emptying test done, and was given meds that caused me extreme body movement issues. I shake. I am tired all the time. the pain under my left rib and the acid coming up the back of my throat is horrible. I was told to rub bengay under my rib. I also have a tumor they found on after a CT scan last year in my left lung. I wonder now if that could be causing alot of my pain. I am scared and I don't know what to do anymore. My son has told me he is tired of hearing me say that I don't feel good. And he wishes he knew what to do to help me. He gets so mad, when the doctors have said there is nothing that can be done. No one seems to know what to do. I am getting weaker and weaker, and my son is watching me die. Just like we both watched his dad die and couldn't do anything about it. I am so scared and getting sicker. I drink boost to try and get something in me, but that even isn't sitting right anymore. PLEASE GOD HEAL ME! My son Needs me! I wonder If I will make it to my next birthday. I am 55 yrs old, and I so NEED for this to go away. I hate how I shake. I can't think right anymore, and that is why I was told to take antidepressants. my stomach isn't digesting food, how the heck do the doctors think I am gonna digest an antidepressant. I already take levothyroxine for my thyroid, and i wonder if that is even digesting correctly. I feel so alone. I feel so sick. I want my life back. This all happened to me last year after I have a colonoscopy and edg with biopsies procedure. but I was told that, the procedure had nothing to do with my gastroparesis. then why am I suffereing since then with this. PLEASE PRAY for my healing. I can't handle this suffereing much longer. Sorry for my rambling. I don't know how else to deal with this. PLEASE HELP ME!
