A wonderful visit :)

I’ve been feeling kind of down lately and my current flare up proves it. Stress is definitely a trigger for me and I almost had an accident a couple of days ago to prove it. Not really appealing at 31 years old but I digress lol Whenever I’m down I’m not the most happy person to be around and I start to feel like I’m living in a fog and just frustrated with the world. Not really a pleasant feeling. I had a dream last night that featured my favorite… Read more A wonderful visit ūüôā

Empathy vs. Sympathy . . . .

When you tell someone you have a chronic illness what is the typical response? “Aww I’m soo sorry, but you don’t look sick?” “You look good and at least you’re skinny” have been common responses for me. ¬†I always felt ¬†the need to change the subject as soon as a person say , “but ¬†you look really good”.

GI is sweating . .

I received two responses to the stern message I sent to my GI’s office. The first response was from the PA who stated, I have forwarded your concerns to Dr. F. and he will see you from now on for treatment. Thank you!!

Then I received two responses from my GI, and he started the first message soo well!! “Hi Crystal”, thanks for spelling my name wrong! lol But I can’t be mad, when I… Read more GI is sweating . .

Sick of biting my tongue . . .

I think I’m an amazing actress! For the past month I have been bleeding everyday, severe bloating often, severe fatigue, and insomnia but¬†somehow I am able to commute and work 40 hours a week, all with a smile on my face. ¬†I should win an Oscar because I don’t believe¬†the average person can do that. I’m surprised no one at the new job has asked if I’m okay, but I guess I use all the energy I have during the work day and pass out when I get home on… Read more Sick of biting my tongue . . .

Bad customer service! . . . smh

I sent an email last week to my GI updating him on my new symptom of joint pains, specifically in my knees and my hips. It’s getting harder to stand up from a sitting position in the past couple of weeks and today I woke up with aches in my legs, hips, and back. I know stress and fatigue are¬†factors since I worked 10 hour days this week and have not been able to sleep all week. 4-6 hours of sleep is not enough. Anyway, their immediate response was for… Read more Bad customer service! . . . smh
