Hello! My name is Logan Miller and I am a recent college graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Go Heels! While in college I developed a illness called SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth) which essentially has sent me to the emergency room about 20 times in the past two years. A majority of the time I am a healthy and functional girl, but once my sympotoms flare up, I will begin to horrifically vomit anything in my body until I am just throwing up stomach vile. At that point, I will be so dehydrated I soon pass out, but what keeps me conscious, unfornately, is the extreme pain that I have in my intestines where the overgrowth of bacteria has formed.
I am so excited to have found my new doctor, Dr. Jason Klop and his awesome team! They are helping me discover the "trigger" foods that cause the bacteria to ferment and therefore cause the inital pain in my intestines to begin. They are also helping supply me with the best supplements that will hopefully erradicate this excess bacteria over the next several months. They are a miracle team and I am so excited to one day be fully healthy and to be the adventerous eater I used to be without the extreme anxiety that I may be consuming something that could send me to the hospital.
As I mentioned earlier, I am a recent college graduate, so I am unable to raise all the money to pay for it myself. I am currently working 3 jobs, one full time and two part time jobs, to help raise the money for my medical bills, but I am falling a little behind. Any donation would be appreciated! Thank you all so much!!!
