Fun Facts: Went to the @thewoodrackcafe  yesterday and their Chai Tea Lattes are so good! .

Another Fast Fast:  Today marks 5 years since I had my second surgery for my then Ulcerative Colitis. I don't have any pictures of myself during that time cause I was so self-conscious and didn't want any evidence or reminders that I was sick. But I have come so far and overall I'm really proud of myself. Though this disease has knocked me down, I keep getting back up. I think it's because I have amazing friends and family that are so supportive. Especially when I need them the most. 💕

They know who they are 😊❤️😘

Happy 1 Year of being shitty colon 🙄 today marks the day where I first showed physical symptoms of having ulcerative Colitis, even though I wouldn't get diagnosed until 3 months later. I woke up a bit sad & of course my body also decided today would just be a rough day physically. But we are in this together for life colon, whether I like it or not. Although it's not something I want to be celebrating, this journey has been monumental and it is for life so why not get myself a cupcake and have an impromptu photo shoot by myself with it 😂 make the most of each moment,  appreciate what you have learned, what you have gained and what is yet to come from any journey. I did blog about today but here is to us colon. Now let's get our shit (literally and figuratively) together and get into remission, okay?  Happy one year colon, you little bastard.

Imagine having disabling symptoms but nobody believes you. Imagine that on top of finding it embarrassing to discuss those symptoms like diarrhea, blood in stools, tummy pains and anxiety you are told it's bcz of stress. IBD patients look normal from the outside but they suffer frequent debilitating symptoms that can significantly impact their daily life.

It's #IBDAwarenessDay today so I'm reposting this photo of my last Remicade infusion. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2005. For many years my illness was pretty in control, my medication (4pills 3xs daily) kept things in check. Besides a random stress induced flare up every once in a while I felt as normal as someone can with a chronic illness. When I got pregnant I was worried about how my body would react to carrying twins and thankfully all those crazy pregnancy hormones kept me feeling great. Then I had my girls and things went to shit, literally. Over the last year I've been on a real roller coaster. I had to go on steroids for months that caused a lot of hair loss, tooth sensitivity, insomnia and caused me to pack on a solid 25 pounds. I've had endless moments of not wanting to or being able to leave the house because I wasn't sure I would have enough time to get to the bathroom or was worried I couldn't be guaranteed access to a bathroom when I needed one. And of course I've been on a whole host of new medications. The cocktail I'm on now, 3 pills 1xs a day and an infusion every 8 or so weeks seems to be working so far. Fingers crossed that stays true. Bathroom habits and pain aren't things people often talk about and because of that I think a lot of us with IBD sort of suffer in silence and try and just

It's #IBDawarenessday & in honor of it I thought I would show you guys how it changes your body physically in more ways than you can imagine. These photos were taken less than 2 months apart. The #moonface is real. Luckily I'm down to 1 pill of #prednisone so hopefully I start getting back to my old self. (Also my best friend is a babe). I wrote a blog post also in honor of today ✌#ibd #ibdwarrior #steroidssuck #ulcerativecolitis #colitis #spoonie #chronicillness

Imagine feeling constant pain in your intestinal tract, having to work your social life around bouts of diarrhea or discomfort, and being severely limited in what you can eat without causing that pain? For #IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) Awareness Day, I spoke with three of my friends who are affected by IBD. Two are living with Crohn’s Disease and one with Ulcerative Colitis. 
Read our conversation about when they were diagnosed, how it has impacted their lives, and their daily regimen to manage the symptoms. (Link in bio) #IBDAwarenessDay

IBD can result in surgery if the case is severe enough. There's many different kinds of surgery a person can have to help things, such as getting a section of badly diseased small intestine removed. Another type of surgery is having an Ostomy bag. I have an ileostomy bag and in my case I had all my large intestine surgically removed, my rectum removed and part of my small intestine pulled out through my abdomen. I wear this bag over it to collect the output. Basically, I have no butt and poop into that bag on my stomach 😂 This has given me a much better quality of life! Although I'm not cured or personally not healthier in anyway, it has improved my life amazingly! For others after having surgery, their symptoms drastically reduced and some no longer have to take any medication!

Today is World IBD Day, it's a day to raise awareness & to celebrate how far we've all come on this journey together. There are 2 main types of IBD, they are Crohn's Disease & Ulcerative Colitis. I have Crohn's Disease and the BIGGEST thing I want to raise awareness of is that IBD isn't a 'pooping disease.' Yes, one of the main symptoms and biggest problem is having to use the toilet urgently and multiple times a day.. but it's much much more than that! It's excruciating stomach pain, joint pain, mouth ulcers, weight loss, malnourishment, muscle weakness, major fatigue and MANY more. Dealing with a chronic illness also gets accompanied by Mental Health issues. It can cause you to lose friends, lose your social life, lose your job/leave education and that can make you feel low. I've had people ask me what Crohn's Disease is and then other people answer for me saying it's a 'shitting disease.' And it's honestly much much more than that.. IBD can't exactly kill you, but the complications from the illness certainly can be dangerous and super life threatening! There is no cure for IBD as of yet.. But hopefully one day there will be!
