Milestones

All post that signify a milestone in my Crohn’s adventure

December 2018

Anti Climax   Stoma wise; increase in some particular issues – such as watery output, green output and some blood. However, now under control and explainable by the new medications and questions about my ovarian cysts and semi blockages; they have only resulted in a couple of sore moments and increase in my usage. Luckily, I’ve been well prepared and…

2018 – Year in Review

Hm. It’s been a bit of a wicked one hasn’t it, 2018? It’s been a weirdly complex year since Day One, to be honest. What can be taken from 2018 is that I can take quite a fair bit of the ‘rough’ times; but let’s be honest, rough times shouldn’t be the norm should they? I’ve had to do alot…

2019 Goals

At the end of 2017, I was recovering from a low blow my health dealt me a couple of months previous and wrote this about my goals for 2018. And whilst I am still a goal orientated and goal driven person, I know that ‘goals’ don’t always fall nicely into a calendar year, nor do they always feel complete. With…

November 2018

Well well well.   Stoma wise; it has been abit more consistent this month. I got my defective products replaced and decided that ordering for Christmas was probably going to be a super productive idea. In theory it was, but it happened to come in three parcels and they were not light at all. And I’ve yet to unpack them…

October 2018

October; the new LIFE chapter   Stoma wise; it’s been leak city of late. Probably due to a box of defective bags; of which I’ve finally taken out of my supplies for good now! And whilst it’s been like this, I’ve been able to handle the watery output, the soreness and the very full bags during the night well too.…

September 2018

Oh September, you are my new August.   Stoma wise; this little one has not causes me one ounce of grief. Honestly, she has held it down when my IBD was flaring and causing my output to vary so damn much, but nope, bag stayed put and I ever got a few of days more out of several  bags when I…

Oh ‘August’, Why do You Hate Me?

August, oh my. Patterns emerge when you’ve had your chronic illness for a while. There are some things you enjoy seeing the patterns towards; like when you can anticipate some symptoms or you get a click moment of clarity. But there are some patterns that do nothing but chip away at your emotions. August is that for me. Trigger, for…

That Seven Year Itch

Yesterday, I made my way to work; another Thursday commuting through town. Nothing special, nothing new, nothing different; just the same old routine. The same thing I’ve been doing for months over the summer. I scroll through my phone, enjoying the Throwback Thursday as I do most Thursdays, to find myself fixated on the date. My Timehop shows me everything…
