Helllllo! 🙂 On this day of love – and not because its just today, but because I do – I am in love.. with myself. Finally, after a couple days of good news and continuing to be pain free, I am fab. Things might not always be perfect, or even great, but as long as I know I can get…

Understanding

“I dont want you to be sorry, I just want you to understand” Is this asking too much? I dont want to put all my eggs in one basket and rely on someone else to make me happy. I want to do it for myself.

Hello! My name is Louise and I have Crohn’s Disease, a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

I was diagnosed in September 2011 after months of symptoms that didn’t really make much sense. In the years since; I’ve had many hospital admissions, tried all of the medication options open to me at the time but chose to have surgery in 2016 to remove a large narrowing in my small bowel. Three months later, I had my colon removed and I now have a temporary ileostomy.

MRI Update

A couple weeks ago I had my final investigative scan, my rescheduled MRI scan, mentioned in this post. I received a CC-ed letter from my consultant today stating that my scan “showed a considerable improvement on the changes previously noted on CT (of the small bowel). This is reassuring but also mirrors the general improvement in condition and blood tests.”…

Work. Life. Annoyances. Complications. Frustrations. Admissions. Guilt. The usual.

Reading

I follow and read alot of blogs by people who suffer from Crohn’s. Being a relative newbie to all of this ‘crohnic illness’ stuff, I find the words of others, their experiences and opinions very reassuring. But it does make me wonder. I really don’t mean for any of this to come across as ‘bragging’ about how ‘easy’ I’ve got…

You know you have Crohn’s when…
