Scans

Its been a while since I had a scan – of any type – done for my Crohns. My last ‘attempt’ was my failed MRI in early December, and before that it was a very rushed second ultrasound during my last hospital stay. In all honesty, I don’t mind the scans. Or the tests. Just knowing more about my condition…

Paying the Price

So, after much festive munchies yesterday – including a massive Christmas lunch, second breakfast and second lunch – I went to bed with mild Crohn’s symptoms last night. Waking up today at 7am wasn’t hard – been up for a hour or so with miserable gut ache – but feeling ‘happy’ and ‘perky’ (much like I have been feeling for the…

And on the Eve of all Eves

.. I am sat in festive pjs, under my delightful duvet. Things are good. Actually, things are really good. Things are working and doing their jobs. And for the first time in months and months, I feel settled and myself once more. It is the most surreal feeling; of being so ill and then gradually getting well again. It feels…

I told a lie today. Instead of being truthful, and saying how I actually feel, I used that ‘oh-so-typical’ line of “oh, I’m doing okay”. There is some truth in that sentence at present – I don’t feel sick: both in the nauseous feeling and being unwell, I’ve eaten and drank today, taken tablets, been out and had social interaction…

Everything is such an effort, taking every fibre of my being to do, requiring everything I have. It never used to be this way, and that continuous thought hits me…

I don’t know how I ever did it before. I really don’t know.. how. I’m sure that I didn’t ignore it on purpose, that I used to listen when it was necessary to, but it just feels so odd. That I can’t not switch off from listening to my body now. It constantly feels.. something. I never not know what…

48hrs

Thursday. Friday. Two horrible horrible days of inconsistent stupid drug related problems. High temperature. CT scan. Ultrasound. Generally being poked about. Too many talks about drug treatments. Question after question. But most of all my IV steroids thought it would be an excellent idea to bottom out my mood, take away all my positivity and turn me into a broken…

Today is a bad day. Spent most of last night between my bedroom and the bathroom. Woke up with no stomach pains but dry mouth and a headache. Now, the nausea is here, and my bloody tongue and taste buds are gone. Tomorrow I go to the hospital for my first clinic appointment. I am so damn tired already. I…
