Day Four – I Write about My Health Because…

I write about my health because… Reflect on why you write about your health for 15-20 minutes without stopping. I write simply because I enjoy writing. Alot happened to me in a relatively short space of time. I spend most of my hospital time in a isolation bed thinking far too much, wondering about everything and anything. I went through many emotions and I had hardly anyone to talk to. I felt alone. I felt completely and utterly destroyed by the news of Crohn’s. I wondered if I was the only one. I know now, that I am just one…


Day Three – Superpower Day

Superpower Day. If you had a superpower – what would it be? How would you use it? I had a tremendously crappy day. My post today comes with alot of inspiration from the lovely hispteralice and her post on the same subject. Fearlessness. I would very like to fearless. To be able to live my life without doubt or regret. To take everything in my stride and continue on with whatever is sent my way. It is a very indulgent thought to want to be rid of fear, but it’s more about bravery. We as a group of individuals come together…


“Because of Crohn’s I…”

thecrohnsfairy said this exact phrase to me, when I was contemplating my ‘acceptance’ of my own Crohn’s disease. She said that she rarely used it in the negative sense – ‘I can’t do… because of Crohn’s’ – instead using Crohn’s to give her the encouragement to do things, make plans, live. I don’t mean to dwell on things – and this might just because of the day I’ve had – but everyone else has lived with this for a lot longer than I have. And I am in way and by no means having a rant or a go at…



I feel very apprehensive writing this post. Mostly because I am little scared about admitting and working through my thoughts on my counselling sessions. I can openly talk about my Crohn’s and its effects on my life, but everything else? That might be too much, right? I had my introduction session with my therapist, Wendy, today. She asked me a whole bunch of questions, most of which I nervously tugged at my tights when answering them. I didn’t want to be nervous, but there I was, sitting in a doctors office, talking to yet another stranger about my life. About…


Day Two – Quotation Inspiration

Quotation Inspiration. Find a quote that inspires you (either positively or negativity) and free write about it for 15 minutes. “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” I am a ‘newbie’ in Crohns sphere. I’ve only been diagnosed 7 months now and I am physically scare free. I’ve had nothing more invasive than a flexiscope and MRI scan, so I can’t even begin to image someone cutting me open and scarring my skin (though, I do this on a semi regular basis with tattoos..). But, I do believe that everything that…
