umm it’s too cold . .

At my current job the air has always been an issue. Since last July I have had to wear a fleece in the office in order to stay warm. But the past few months have been ridiculous. For some odd reason, when it was 40 degrees outside a couple of weeks ago, the AC was on in our office. Why is the AC on in March ?!?!? I remember heading outside and realizing the our office was slightly warmer. As a result everyone in my office has been sick at… Read more umm it’s too cold . .

Positive vibes . . . :)

The past 3 weeks have been a new low for me, but I am happy to say for the past 24 hours it has been a good day! And this beautiful weather is totally matching my mood.  I’ve been out running errands and even attended my first crohn’s/colitis support group through the CCFA.  It was a very positive experience, and to meet other young people of difference races with this disease, it was very comforting. It was also great to talk about symptoms in graphic detail without grossing people out, that… Read more Positive vibes . . . 🙂

My body’s schedule . . .

I believe I jinxed myself in my last post. The pain returned the next day, and I have been on Tylenol extra strength ever since.

In the past 3 months I have noticed… Read more My body’s schedule . . .

Remaining hopeful . . .

I am currently experiencing my first BAD flareup. After 3 days of hell, I am now starting to feel better. To have intense cramps all day and going to the bathroom at least 10 times a day, I feel so relieved that the pain has stopped.  I also feel safe to eat again, earlier today I was scared to eat anything just to avoid any more pain. I prefer hunger pains any day over severe abdominal pain. But even though the past few days have been horrible, it could be worst. I found… Read more Remaining hopeful . . .

So sick of . . .

I am so sick of seeing white walls . . . the walls of my doctors’ offices, walls of my pharmacy, walls of my job. I’m so sick of paying for co-pays, prescription re-fills, and medical bills.  I’m so sick of medical assistants with bad attitudes, I’m just done lately. I went to see my primary physician the other day and she also wants me to get blood work done.  My doctors are like vampires . . . this disease is like a vampire, sucking the life out of me.… Read more So sick of . . .
