Ugh . . . 😦
I have missed doing the things i love, like writing for this blog . . . Past few months have been annoying! I refuse to say hard because overall i'm living a good life and is now grateful i'm healthy again . . "now" is the keyword. Last time I chatted with you I was … Continue reading IBD is annoying . . . .
As I embark on my 31st first birthday tomorrow, I'm reflecting on how 2017 has been so far , and it's been a busy year. In addition, I've been eating what I want, not exercising, candy/soda galore. It was like YES! I'm on Remission so I'm going to eat everything I've denied myself for two … Continue reading IBD back at it again . . . 😦
It's been a week since my last post and not a good one. A very stressful, exhausting week it has been. New job has officially started to stress me out, but for the first time in my career its not over drama, just a lot of freaking work. But with my condition any amount … Continue reading A Flare attack and Black & Blue . . . .
I'm starting to get worried, I have had severe fatigue all week and no matter what I eat nothing is coming out. It's been two days since I've had a #2, I guess around five days is when I should be concerned?!?! I drink water all day and ate oatmeal yesterday, still nothing . . … Continue reading Ruff week! . . .
After my brief hiatus I wish I could write about good news, unfortunately the blood is back. It's been back for weeks and what is a temporary fix? Predisone! Thankfully due to my personal pharmacy I have an abundance of leftover pills, more money in my pockets for now. When I noticed the blood wasn't … Continue reading Two steps forward . . . . ten steps back
As I wait sitting to see who I thought would be my GI, of course he's not avaliable, seeing the physician assistant instead. And I have gained 8 pounds since my last visit, so over these steroids. It's not going to be a pleasant doctor visit.

A very active group that I follow on Facebook, check them out when you get a chance 🙂 In honor of World IBD Day I am wearing purple and made a donation to the CCFA. It's not a lot but something is better than nothing right? 🙂 This world of IBD … Continue reading World IBD Day! . . . 🙂
I'm starting my weekly follow-ups with my GI this week, something I never anticipated, but I guess it needs to be done in order for me to get to remission. During my appointment last week when my GI asked if there is a possibility I could be pregnant or plan to have kids anytime soon, … Continue reading Deep thoughts . . .
I went grocery shopping yesterday and was so excited when I found the gluten-free section. Unfortunately, because it's gluten-free does not mean it is FODMAP friendly. I have discovered that soy, onion, and garlic is in EVERYTHING!! Did you know soy is in kool-aid packets? I could not believe it! And yes I have removed kool-aid from my … Continue reading FODMAP struggle . . .
