This sums it up. Nobody in my life understands. I keep getting advice from the same people ‘Don’t eat that, don’t do this, take this medication, the doctors need to cure you’. I know they mean well but every time I explain that it doesn’t work like that I get a blank look back! Sometimes having Crohns is frustrating but you know what it’s my Crohns and we’re going to be stuck together forever so we may as well try to be friends right? #crohnsdisease#crohnsquotes#crohnswarrior#crohnslife#crohnsfighter#crohnsawareness
So I’ve just had to bring my next appointment forward to this Saturday. I cannot deal with the constant pain, the nausea and feeling exhausted! I seem to be going downhill and it sucks. But, on the outside I look perfectly healthy! Having an #invisbleillness is so frustrating sometimes trying to explain to people that I have to leave work early and they look at me like ‘you look fine’ 🤦🏼♀️😫💩💜 #crohnsdisease#chronicillnessquotes#chronicillness#crohnsquotes#crohnslife
This sums it up completely. There is someone I have to see everyday and they always have to have something wrong with them a headache, backache, cough. That apparently is worse than my Crohn’s Disease. I normally don’t let things like this effect me but when you see it everyday it’s difficult. Does anyone have any advice? 💩💜 #crohnslife#chronicillness#chronicillnessquotes#crohnswarrior#crohnsquotes
“I want to live, not just survive”
I’ve never read something more relatable to my life than this. If you know me, you know how Crohn’s has always been my life. It’s all I’ve ever really known. I’ve learned to make adjustments when I go out, how to be prepared in the car, always know where every single bathroom is every single time no matter where I go because that’s what I know.
I also know what it’s like to stay in pajamas 24/7, not be able to eat for days, lucky if I can even get a shower done! I was honestly just trying to survive in hopes my pain would end. I hoped that one day I can have a “normal” life. Run errands all day, work, just be useful instead of useless.
Because of Beachbody, I’m able to live my life. Do I still worry about something’s from my past, of course because like I said, it’s all I knew but I’ve also learned to embrace it. I’ve learned to embrace the fact that I am able to be “normal” one step at a time.
It’s not always easy, but I remember how far I’ve come and know I don’t deserve to ever go back. Beachbody isn’t a cure for anything at all but what it has done for me I’ll never go back to that girl who was just trying to survive. I just want to live my life the best I can and you deserve it too.
