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.
Together, let’s find the common denominator and take it down! Consider this post as a forum if you’d like to join the discussion below.
