Today is #ibdawarenessday
. inflammatory b***l diseases, like crohn’s disease, which i suffer from, are chronic and incurable diseases. they can be managed, but not always to the best effect, and oftentimes at a high cost, both financially, physically and emotionally. sometimes it feels like all we do is work hard at managing our disease. the doctors don’t know much more than we patients do. that can feel very lonely and scary. ibd is an invisible illness, meaning we don’t look sick, and therefore oftentimes we are treated with disbelief or lack of compassion and understanding. please take a minute to learn more about ibd. it’s the only way we can ever hope someday to find a cure. thank you for your time.
