Anxiety . . . please go away . .

I found this awesome article on BuzzFeed titled, “What you say to someone with chronic pain, and what they hear”. . It displays images of typical conversations that people with a chronic illness have with “normal” people everyday. I loved the article because I could relate, but then I thought, “why isn’t it okay for me to take people at their word? Why must I think more into it?”  I have my many reasons and have been suffering from anxiety and insecurities long before I was diagnosed.  . . . But being diagnosed with Crohn’s (Yes, I am accepting this crohn’s diagnosis for now) which is a chronic illness and how my life has dramatically changed in the past 9 months, these images spoke volumes.  I’m always questioning people’s’ intentions.  It’s the reason why lately I no longer openly discuss my illness outside of my immediate family, unless someone ask.  I can just imagine someone rolling their eyes when I talk about my illness, even though I have never seen it happen, I can just imagine it or expect it to happen. . . I know  . . .a sad, exhausting way to live that’s why at times I hate being alone with my thoughts.

BuzzFeed posted another interesting video “what anxious people actually hear”,  of course it has a comedic twist, but I’m sure many can relate 🙂

You gotta laugh :) . . . That one time . .

I love BuzzFeed. They always have videos that everyone can relate to, and one thing that everyone does is poop. Unfortunately for us IBDers it happens more often, sometimes uncontrollable, painful, and many other things . . but I won’t get into all that.

Anyway, this video made me laugh. I believe everyone has had “That one time  . . ” moment. Unlike the average Joe, people living with IBD have learned to be well prepared, that’s a good thing right? . . . I know I’m stretching it, but trying to see the positive! 🙂

I’m packing my “emergency kit” for my car now after watching this video.

You gotta laugh – The Perfect Poop? :)

My blog has been really intense lately so I need to lighten it up just a bit 🙂 I found another very interesting and funny BuzzFeed video titled the perfect poop? Have you guys ever heard of the “Squatty Potty”? Would you buy it?

It’s about $30 on Amazon and made in the Good ole USA 🙂 lol
