Hey everyone! So I’ve decided to start a blog, as you can tell, to share my experience, day to day life, inspiration, and a few good chuckles about my life with Crohn’s disease and what it’s like living with an Ileostomy! My main purpose isn’t to talk about myself to gain sympathy, pity, or to say “poor me”, but rather to let others in the same situations know that they’re not alone, they can get through this, and to never give up- no matter how hard it gets and how badly you want to.
Day to day life with an incurable disease, or a bag of literal shit with you every day is hard. Really hard. Mentally and physically. But it’s doable, and that’s what I’m aiming to do, help those living through this, live through this! As well as help those who AREN’T going through all of this understand what it is we go through on a daily basis. How you can be supportive without annoying those who do, because trust me- there are times we just have to roll our eyes and say “yeah, right, please just shut up and go away because you have NO idea.” But I’ll discuss those in a later post!
I truly hope that my future posts DO inspire others to just smile through all the bad shit (pun intended), and rejoice in the good.
