I'm not sure how many times I can say this but, "where did the time go?!"
This year has been a busy one between traveling, work, organizing the GP Walk, home life, and of course my own self-care. The summer is coming to an end and I hope to have some time soon to share more stories, updates, and photos. However, today I have a wonderful giveaway and event that I am very excited to tell you about!
What I have learned over the years during my journey with GP is that no matter what kind of diet, medication, procedure or alternative therapy I try (trust me, I've tried a lot!), none of these things will make a difference if I'm not managing the emotions of it all. Learning to cope with gastroparesis, learning to live without fear and anxiety about what has, is or could happen is so incredibly necessary to living our very best. It is not easy but with the right guidance and support I promise it's possible.
Coming up on Saturday, September 26th, Crystal Saltrelli, from Living Well with Gastroparesis, will be hosting The Coping, Stress, & Anxiety Online Summit. What is so great about this event is that anyone can attend online right from the comforts of their own home! It takes place from 9:30am - 5pm EST and includes 6 expert speakers, 2 live Q&A sessions, a chance to talk with other attendees, video and audio recordings, event booklet, plus books and product giveaways throughout the day.
Here is what Crystal has to say and I'm sure many of us can relate to at least one of these.
Crystal will be giving back by donating 10% of proceeds to the Digestive Health Alliance as well as offering a free ticket to someone who can't afford it for every ticket that is purchased. In addition, all members of the military (active or retired) as well as their spouses/partners can participate for free.
PLUS she has generously offered 2 free tickets for me to give away!
To enter leave a comment below on the following:
- What has been most helpful for you when coping with the challenges of GP? This could be as simple as a nap, cuddling with your pet, reading a book, being with someone you love, hobbies, or taking a deep breath. OR What is something you would like to include more of in your life that may be helpful?
I will also be asking this on the FB page where you are welcome to leave a comment to enter as well (1 entry per person).
***Congratulations Heather and Ruth N., you both have a ticket to the upcoming summit!***
Thank you everyone who shared what has helped you cope with GP, both here and on FB. Be sure to check out the details on Crystal's website and hope to see you at the event!
