So . . . it’s less than an hour until the New Year and everyone on social media are posting New Year resolutions and all these positive messages “out with the old, in with the new!” etc. But let’s be real, its not like next week is going to be amazing and wonderful just because it’s a new year. Since I was diagnosed I told myself to let go, because me having this disease was completely out of my control. I finally learned you cannot control your life, just gotta… Read more Happy New Year! . . . Ugh . . . 😦 →
I know . . . it’s been a minute, but for the first time in over two years I can say my tummy has not been the cause of my woes, which is amazing right!! I am in full remission, GI is amazed and I’m in denial. For the first time in years I am on no meds, only thing I’m taking are vitamins, I guess Humira was my saving grace, it worked for me. When my enthused GI was in amazement in how everything looks good including my blood work,… Read more Sigh of relief . . . →

I don’t know why I find this so funny, but it’s soo true! I have now accepted that my symptoms will always persist.
I have been dreading February 2016 for the past 6 months. It was the month of my first big conference at the new job. ( I guess I did well since I’m still employed).

You are correct! Remission has been gone for the past month, and I’m being irresponsible because I have not told my… Read more Glad February is over!!! →
You would think being snowed in for 5 days would be relaxing! Not for me! I’m over it, and not talking about the snow. . . .
Another busy stressful week, can’t wait until this conference is over at my job, so exhausting. As a result of the stress I saw blood for the first time in months . . . sighs . . . can’t sleep, felt nauseous for a few days and hard to breath one day. I think I was about to have an anxiety attack. So I started drinking some wine and taking a nap whenever I can and that has helped, and I haven’t seen blood since. I really never know what’s going… Read more A bad day can be really bad . . →
In my uber ride to the airport in DC my driver said you have to eat real Mexican food when you’re in Texas , make sure you eat tacos. With IBD?, ill try . . We started today with breakfast tacos at Rudy’s, to be safe I got one taco and substituted a corn tortilla for the regular flour as a way to be “gluten-free”, with bacon and eggs. Other than gas pains I’ve been okay. For lunch we went to a Mexican restaurant called chuy’s, I thought soft tacos with rice, and I ate a… Read more #7daysofIBD Day 5 – Taco,taco! →
