One Year Without Crohn’s

Crohn’s Disease has been a major part of my life, so much in fact that it had become synonymous with me.  That’s very subjective and that’s simply what I thought, of course, but I believe that I was in the hospital so much when I was younger that you could have just pegged me as ‘that guy that is always sick.

However, I guess, just as the seasons change…I have changed.  Where there are harsh winters, there have been challenging times that I have had with my Crohn’s Disease.  Also, there are springs and summers and now I am feeling great!  I know that I persevered and I simply won’t have problems with my Crohn’s disease moving forward!

That’s not to say that I won’t face challenges and adversity in other aspects of my life.  Believe me, at this point in my life I feel that everything is going terrific, but I feel that my ‘winter’ will come and things will become challenging once again.  Although I find that to be truth, I know that I will be more prepared and that the next challenges I face will be nothing like the ones I’ve overcame thus far.

Having dealt with Crohn’s, I’ve learned how to manage my stress and I’ve eaten a lot better!  I’ve prioritized exercise and I’ve stopped neglecting my body.  With this achievement, I have to share that it has been a full year since I’ve been sick and in the hospital due to my Crohn’s Disease.

That being said, I feel that I’ve gained knowledge and wisdom in battling my illness.  I want to help in any way that I can.  If you need advice with your Crohn’s Disease, eczema, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Fibromyalgia let me know.  I feel that we are all in this together and that these diseases seem to have a lot of the same root problems.

Crohn’s and Eczema UPDATE

Hey guys!

I just wanted to give you an update on everything going on with the Crohn’s Disease and eczema.  I’ve actually been successful in reducing the symptoms of both!

I barely have any eczema at the moment.  I have a small outbreak on my back and I’m not really about to complain about that!  I know with hard work and dedication(and a lot of research) you can treat these illnesses and become better!

For now, I’ve been focusing on using a hydrocortizone cream that I rub onto my head and face where I’ve broken out and that has worked really well!  In an effort to reduce inflammation and prevent the CAUSE as well as the symptoms I am trying to eat less processed junk(as stated before).

All in all, things are going rather well and I know that I’ll be looking like a brand new man in a few months.

My cutting season is also just starting so I’ll give you more updates on that soon.

My face is a lot clearer than what it was!  I had an eczema break out on the side of my face and now the symptoms seem to be completely gone. :)
