Hitting the gym this morning but not pushing myself too hard and feeling a little annoyed. As I’ve mentioned, I hadn’t been feeling so great the past month or so. My back and joint pain had been doing a number on me throughout the year and although I had days where things were better and manageable than others I had requested for some blood work to be drawn. The good news is that my iron and B-12 levels are great especially since my iron levels had a big improvement. However, my Vitamin D levels came back really low and below normal range just barely. Also, I discovered that I was deficient in trace minerals as well prior to these tests being done and that was the reason why I had these requested. I’ve had 3 Vitamin D deficiencies within the last 3 years and I now know when they start up and it always seems to start when I get lower back pain which I just blew off as aches and pains from the work I do. If you’re feeling pain or fatigued or just not right in general, do your best to get things checked ASAP! I’ve made it a habit to try and see the doctor for anything no matter how small or trivial it may be. Living with a chronic illness has made me more cautious and maybe a hypochondriac at times but it’s better to be safe than sorry 💪🏼💜

Microvascular decompression (MVD) is done to relieve abnormal compression of a cranial nerve
•
The skull is opened (craniectomy), the nerve is exposed, and a tiny sponge is inserted between the compressing vessel and the nerve
•
Potential complications include stroke, seizure, venous sinus occlusion, swelling of the brain, and CSF leak. We especially monitor for bradycardia intraoperatively  due to the nerve stimulation
•
Patients stay in the ICU over night for close monitoring 🧠

As humans we are curious by nature. 
I get asked so many questions about my health and can I just say I love to share everything there is to know about it. Yes, it is hard to talk about it & yes I sometimes get awkward, nervous & even upset inside remembering certain things but I keep my smile on my face & share what I know because I think it is so good for people to know everything they can about anything, especially if it can help them one day help themself or someone they know.

With this being said, just remember that when someone is sharing information with you about anything & you think it all sounds bearable - not everything is being shared with you, I know personally there are certain things I can never speak of with anyone besides my family, those are the really tough moments & struggles that I wouldn't know how to talk about if I tried.

Another thing as humans, we are not ready to hear about really tough realities until we are living them.

Day 99. At times it seemed like I was surrounded with no way out. Through this journey I've been reminded of the truth...God had me surrounded with his love.

It was a long hiatus because of my setback of my chronic illnesses and becoming immune against my TNF-inhibitor medicine (the Remicade). But today i felt I could try to actively work on my condition a little bit by, very carefully, doing some easy exercises I learned while on my recuperation-program at the hospital in the beginning of last year. 🏥
.
This is the place where i do these exercises. De Fitfabriek (literal translation “The Fitfactory). It’s a gym where regular people come to do their workouts. I feel like an elderly person when i do my exercises while all these other people work themselves into a sweat! But i am there to work on myself, not to worry what other people think of me. 🏋🏻‍♂️
.
So, i hope i can continue this. It’s an uneasy balance with having almost no energy to spare, yet trying to become a little more active so my health doesn’t deteriorate more. Today i can be proud I tried and could do my exercises, even if it was a short while and with almost no resistance on the fitness equipment. I did it! 👊🏻

This pic seemed to open a floodgate of questions, but I love when people ask questions! Maybe it's the teacher in me, but it brings me joy to impart wisdom, erase doubt, open minds, and break stereotypes. Plus, the #IBD community is so open and supportive; I'm happy to chip in! So hear we go:
✔Why two IVs?
Due to 20+ years of IVs in my hands and wrists, either my skin or veins or both scarred making it difficult to find a "good" vein. For the past 4 years, IVs have been placed in my "elbow crease", but now those veins seem to be giving up too. The one on the wrist worked for the 1st hour of the infusion before it started hurting and turning red. Along came the 2nd IV...
✔What caused your allergy?
The medicine that keeps my illness under control also has several side effects. You've all seen pics of my eczema and some of you know I get sick for about two or three days after #Remicade day. I also get headaches, brain fog (also due to #Crohn's), and #jointpain. An allergic reaction is to be expected, which is why they premedicate with oral Benadryl and/or Tylenol. This is the 1st time I've had a reaction after Benadryl, so from now on it'll be in IV form instead of oral. Sweet dreams for me! :-p
✔How many more infusions do you have?
Loads; it's forever! Well, as long as my body can tolerate them. Some people have been on Remicade for years, but others have to switch meds since the body can reject it at any time building antibodies against it. My last bloodwork showed an increase in antibodies, so there's a chance there will be a switch at some point.
✔Is that a regular IV or chemo or what?
Interestingly enough, Remicade was designed as a chemo drug for cancer, but was ineffective in treating it. It does work as an immunosuppressant, though, so it's used to treat #autoimmune diseases.
✔How long do you have to sit there?
About 3 hours. The 6 hours this last time was only because of the reaction.
✔How often do you go in?
Every 8 weeks. My doctor tried reducing it to 6 weeks, but my body wasn't too happy with that. It has a mind of its own... #ibdwarrior #crohnsdisease #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #uc #crohnsandcolitis

Today’s view. Pain has been escalating gradually over the last week and yesterday it was just too much so I’ve retreated to bed. Fighting the feeling that I’ve ‘given in’. I’m doing what I need. I’m taking painkillers, I’m lying down to take the weight & pressure of my fistula. I’m hating every minute and I’m done with this dumb ass disease. I’m done with fighting. And that’s ok. I’m angry. And that’s ok. I’m tired. And that’s ok. It’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok. Fingers crossed the hospital get back to me after trying to contact them every day for a week. I can’t wait to kiss this bowel goodbye now. For all those fighting and in pain, I see you ❤️

Morning! 
Quick upper body workout, 3 rounds of 10 push ups and 5 ring rows. I wanted to do more ring rows but the rings were adjusted to hanging quite low and I couldn't be bothered to fiddle with them!
Nice back and shoulder burn! 😀
(Please ignore the pyjamas 😳😂)

I am so lucky to have hubby that understands that this is my mood almost every day, but especially on days like today. 
My joints and stomach were acting up a little today after coming down with a cold. 😭 But my husband made sure to take care of me with lots of tolerable foods and affection. Check out my story to see how else he spoiled me today. 😍 • • • • •

Returned the rest of the #capsuleendoscopy recording equipment to my GI’s office after the 8-hour procedure today, and now I’m finally back home and able to eat/drink/rest! •
Going to try some @gleafmd #blueberryskunk to help with my nausea and blerghness to see if I can really get myself to eat something decent tonight, especially after only being allowed to eat 1 rice cake and 1/2 cup of water today. 🤞🏻Really looking forward to hopefully sleeping more than 2-3 hours tonight!! Hope your dreams are long and sweet! 💜❤️
•
P.S. Seeing the blinking capsule pass in the toilet at the end is totally creepy and bizarre like some alien vessel landing from infinity and beyond. Sooo weird. 🛸

The #reality of #chronicpain is no joke. It can be #overwhelming, #defeating & weigh us down with #depression as we hide from the outside world
BUT...
We can enjoy life despite the presence of #pain. We can learn to do more than simply exist and actually LIVE and THRIVE!

LIFE UPDATE🌹‼️ today was a big day! i finally had my post up with my surgeon after 6 long weeks. my incisions healed great and my stoma looks good. unfortunately i will have to continue with the course of antibiotics (cipro & flagyl) for the next month and potentially longer. I am facing the very real possibility of removing my rectum and having a permanent ileostomy. as sad as this makes me, i am just looking to get back to my healthiest self. i would like to postpone this until i graduate university, so we may be looking into biologics soon. despite all this, i’ve been feeling better and at least have the beginning of a plan to get me better. all in all, i’ve decided to just take this recovery day by day and celebrate all my little victories as they come👍🏻☀️

It is amazing what a little Prednisone and a lot of rest and love can do! This time last week we were getting discharged from @houstonmethodist after spending 6 nights there with a mini-flare in my small intestine.

•He still has a a math packet and summer reading project to finish. 😬
•My oldest son is on his way home from Colorado.🎉
•My daughter keeps bringing up the fact that she’s leaving in 3 weeks for 3 months.😢 I’m actually so excited for her. I wish I could go with her. Not in a helicopter mom kind of way, but as a friend and fellow adventurer.
•Football practice has already started for Cole and I’m excited about watching him play. He’s playing 8 man football so that will be something I’ve never seen before.
•Very happy that we’ll all be together for a few days!

🦋💜 Milestone day! Today I started out on a brand new career path at my new job. After a three month break from work which included eight nights in hospital and the start of a major recovery journey (which is still ongoing and working out better than I could have hoped!), I’m so excited for this huge career change. I ended up making this decision after thinking about my long term health and realised that a different working environment would be kinder on my body (which has been through a heck of a lot in the last few years...). Can’t wait to get stuck in to this new challenge and I’m damn proud of myself for passing my first interview in four years and being offered this position when I still wasn’t feeling 100%! Thank you so much to everyone who’s supporting me and recommended me for the job, you know who you are guys! 💕

Down 5lbs in one week! 😊I have stopped my late night snacking, I have 3 meals a day 500 cal or less per meal and 1-2 snacks! I also did 3 days of 30 minute cardio workouts!

Took my oldest to the high school to get her locker organize for her freshman year, Then we went to the dentist 2 of my 3 got their molars sealed!  Then we had a for farmers market and bought some fresh green beans, watermelon and peaches!  Now we are at the play place with my nephew who is 3 to run some energy out! So I opted for some grilled chicken! 2 pieces is usually around $4! Fast food is never ideal but this is my go to when we do stop! #weightlossjourney #weightwatchers #freestyle #itworksifyouworkit #wwsisterhood #accountability #foodjournal #wwindiana #wwmoms #chicken #healthierchoices #gettingfit #trytomakechanges #whatiate #beyondthescale #breakinghabits #trytomakechanges #ulcerativecolitis #autoimmunedisease #invisibledisorder #ivegotguts #unfortunatelytheyredefective #ibd #ibdwarrior #takingcontrol #tracking #lowresidue #lowresiduediet #ibddiet #wwfastfood

🎶Strudel strudel strudel 🎵

Yes I am singing a little strudel song, and no it's nothing at all to do with the fact that I just swam my little heart out and am now soooo happy to remember that I have a portion of strudel left for after dinner 😄

Today for the first time side I started back swimming I really felt like I got into the rhythm of it, and I managed more lengths in less time than I have so far, so I can already see my fitness improving yay 😊🏊🏼😴 Now for a little nap!

☝️Barnens frukost som även blev mellanmål i form av glass 🙊 Inte direkt de ingredienser som man vanligtvis finner i en glass, men barnen och jag sluka varsin snabbt. Ebba åt med hela ansiktet, kolla min story 😅
Jag mixade:
3 stora frysta grönkålsblad
2 avokado 
4 dl frysta blåbär
2 stora frysta gröna bananer
2 dl glutenfria havregryn
2 msk chiafrön
1 tsk vaniljpulver
250 ml kokosmjölk
1 dl vatten

De ni! Den glassen hade de kunnat få äta varje dag 🍦

All I wanna do is zonk out in the fetal position with Josie... but I gotta keep this camera pill going on its scenic tour of my guts so around the house I walk! I’m actually proud of all the walking/shuffling I managed to do at the mall with my dad. It was eerie to be there before most of the stores were open though lol! #capsuleendoscopy 💊📸 #screwpain •

“Didn’t I know that it would solve all my problems so easily if I would just listen to her, darn it? Sally Smarty-Pants, I’m sure that rubbing some sparkly cream on my earlobe and spinning around in a circle 25 times every blue moon will cure all my ails. I know it’ll transform me into a luscious unicorn and it’ll whisk me into some magical fantasy land where I’ll live happily ever after. But would you let me figure it out for myself sometime? Everyone seems to have an opinion...”#linkinbio 🦄😒

Can I just say how awesome #freedombars are? They're #SCDlegal, taste great, are easy to take anywhere (important for my stereotypical #mompurse when we're out & about, but also convenient for my #crohnskid to take to school for snack), and bonus: they were invented by an #IBDwarrior. Doesn't get much better than that for this family!

Gratitude has become a bit of an obsession of mine lately. Not because my life is perfect (whose is??) but because it makes me feel happy and hopeful. ☺️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes, when we aren't where we want to be in life yet we can get caught up in the 'have nots.' All the things left to do, all the resources we don't have, all the things we wish we were. It can easily get overwhelming. 😳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gratitude takes work, but once you get into it, I'm willing to bet you won't mind. When you're focused on all you've already accomplished, all that you have, and how far you've come, the next step doesn't seem quite so insurmountable. 😅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chronic illness often forces us to move through life at a different pace and in different ways than everyone else. But we still ALL have things that are good in our lives. Get into the habit of seeing them, and watch how they multiply! 🤓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Snooker professional Ali Carter (“The Captain”) has “been to hell and back” in the past with his health. 
Having not only suffered with #crohns since 2003, Ali has also had both testicular #cancer and lung cancer. His demanding travel schedule all over the world can make eating good quality food all the time much more difficult. 
While he still has ups and down in how he feels, he is now medication free, and feels “a million times” better than he did even just a few months ago. 
In this video Ali tells us more on his story with his health and how we’ve helped him to turn things around. To find out more about our programmes then visit www.IamGregWilliams.com/programmes

Exhausting night. Up most of the night with another “blockage” of some sort. With my usual tricks I was able to get Pearle to cooperate but not before she ruined the plans I had for the last night here 😔
.
.
I’m here in Nashville for the weekend - exploring, drinking, eating lots of BBQ (😳) - so I almost expected this to happen. It has been so so hot here and we are outside from 8am until dinnertime. Yesterday was especially taxing in the heat so I think that just sent me over the edge. I’ve been trying to pace myself in terms of activity and hydration but it’s been tough. I’m horrible at listening to my body when all I wanna do is normal people fun activities 😒 I try not to think of it as I’m being punished for having fun but that mindset seems hard to avoid lately. Ugh.
.
.
On a good note, my Stelara got approved! As soon as I get back to Boston I’m going to set up the loading dose. Anyone have any experience with Stelara?? I’ve read up on it some but would love to hear personal opinions.

Random post but, @mat_north you’ve been right all these years. Cream cheese + mango chutney = FLIPPING YUM (doffs cap & bows down) It’s my 3rd attempt at breakfast as my others went ‘missing’ (looks to tiny despots accusingly) .

•LUNCH SNACK• 
Sweet potato chips
Crispy kale chips
Kim chi 
Hommus 
Avocado smash 
Method: 
I cooked the potato chips in olive oil. I cooked the kale with a drizzle of coconut oil & sprinkle of salt. Kale chips only take a few minutes to cook once oven is hot so be wary 🤗✌. I made the avo smash with chopped onion & a squeeze of lemon juice. I bought the hommus at the shops 😄 because I was feeling lazy 🤣. Kim chi courtesy of my roomie @freyaprumm
thanks for the probiotics girl 😉👌. This was yum! Enjoy it if you make it 🤘🤸‍♀️. ✌

•LUNCH SNACK• Sweet potato chips Crispy kale chips Kim chi Hommus Avocado smash Method: I cooked the potato chips in olive oil. I cooked the kale with a drizzle of coconut oil & sprinkle of salt. Kale chips only take a few minutes to cook once oven is hot so be wary 🤗✌. I made the avo smash with chopped onion & a squeeze of lemon juice. I bought the hommus at the shops 😄 because I was feeling lazy 🤣. Kim chi courtesy of my roomie @freyaprumm thanks for the probiotics girl 😉👌. This was yum! Enjoy it if you make it 🤘🤸‍♀️. ✌ ☆ 💪 #thewellbeingmovement  #smartcarbs  #healthyguts  #simplefoods  #dairyfreemeal  #plantbasedcooking  #vegetarianfoods  #veganfrotherz  #gcfoodie  #antiinflammatorydiet  #vegetablechips  #tweedheads  #coolangatta  #healthymealplan  #healthyveganfood  #healthybowls  #holistichealthcoaching  #yogifood  #yumandhealthy  #ulcerativecolitisfighter  #ulcerativecolitishealing  #ibdwarrior  #colitiswarrior  #iinhealthcoach  #selfheal  #vegetabledish  #healthyfoodchoices  #weightlossrecipes  #countnutrientsnotcalories  #healthierhabits 
Got the day off today so luckily no Monday blues for me.
🙌
Instead I’m going to be planning LOTS of holidays for me and the bag to go on.
✈️ Time to book some flights for Vietnam in December, budget for Everest in March and google everything to do in Florida in May.
😍
Need to get my bag it’s own little passport....
💩
Hope everyone has a perfect Monday to start their week off.

Had the time of my life at the @taylorswift concert last night!!
•
First off, everyone needs to see this concert. It will blow your mind! 🐍 I’m seeing her again with my husband in New Orleans in 6 weeks. 🙈
•
I met up with two friends from college in Atlanta this weekend and we had the best time catching up and seeing Taylor Swift in concert.
•
Last time I was in Atlanta was April of 2017. I was terribly sick with UC and ended up having an accident in my friend’s boyfriend’s apartment. It was totally humiliating and probably one of the worst moments throughout my whole UC journey.
•
This weekend, I didn’t have to worry about that! We had Mexican for lunch yesterday, drank champagne while getting ready for the concert, grabbed some appetizers at a restaurant before the show, got to the stadium and got some frozen sangria margaritas, and smacked on some stadium french fries! Was my jpouch perfect? Nope. Did I go to the restroom a couple of times? Yep. But you know what, the fact that I could control when that happened was incredible. For the first time in a long time my health didn’t hold me back from doing a single thing this weekend!
•
I’m still having a slight issue with leakage. It usually isn’t too bad, but I always have on a panty liner just in case. I’m really paranoid about this. When my stool gets loose, that’s when the leakage seems to get worse. I’m still trying to figure out how to control that. I’ve continued doing kegal exercises in hopes I can strengthen those muscles more and prevent any leakage. The leakage is getting a lot better though. In the beginning I was having pretty bad leakage daily, and now that bad leakage usually only happens once every week or two. Eventually I am really hoping that stops completely. I feel like it will stop since I’ve already seen a lot of improvement in the last 3 months. This is a SLOW recovery, and for an impatient person like myself, that’s hard to accept at times.
•
I’m reminding myself everyday that I’ve come so far, and I’m really proud of that and proud of my body for enduring everything that it has for the past 3.5 years.

Haven’t played around on spin in awhile and it shows 🙈 video sped up because it was like turtle spin pole 🐢

Honestly, who says that weekday work breakfasts need to be a shitty bowl of cereal?
We have gluten free whole meal toast, wilted spinach, fresh tomato, sharp cheddar cheese and two poached eggs (microwave style). This gives me purpose to my day.. not a shitty bowl of cereal 😂 -

The small things are so much more significant now compared to before UC. I wore jeans today (for one hour). Significant because I haven’t been able to wear any style of jeans since October.
-
I’m feeling very fortunate. Despite the difficulties. I do have my days of “why me”. But I’m doing my best.
-
I couldn’t wear anything with a waistband for all of October because it was my worst UC flare. I had been on Remicade, seeing if it could work, but once I tapered off Prednisone again..that was it!😳 I had excruciating abdominal pain around the clock. In my opinion I have a high tolerance for pain, and I couldn’t move at all.
-
So I headed back to the man who is my amazing surgeon. I broke down in his office, in front of my mom, where I shared the main reason I was pushing myself through the pain was so that my family wouldn’t have to lose me😔. At that low point, we scheduled my surgery. Immediately I could breathe. I laughed a little - simultaneous fear and joy. Somehow I stayed positive - thinking that I was handed an experience I could get through and survive. We’re really tougher than we realize.
-
Back to the jeans👖. Couldn’t wear them after my 3 surgeries. My abdominal muscles (and most of my muscles) aren’t very strong, so now my newly arranged, traumatized gut sticks out a bit - It’s partly my small intestine, which is dropped down in the new set-up. If I get stronger ab muscles, it may help to pull organs back in. One step at a time! I want PT next🙏.
-
Jeans are a milestone for me. Sending my deepest support to those who need a moment like that - Let’s hold on tight to the hope for many milestones to come for everyone.

“You can’t fall if you don’t climb but where’s the fun in staying on the ground the whole time”
I couldn’t have enjoyed my day at the #pinnaclesofberea more if I tried 
It was such a blast climbing rocks and running through the mountains with my love @queen.of.longing 
I can’t believe the quality of my life and heath has gone up so much this year 
Meditate, eat clean and create happiness
