You changed my life without even trying, and I don’t think I could ever tell you how much you mean to me. I can’t imagine what things would be like if I hadn’t met you.
This is something I would love to say to Bernie. My Crohn’s might be the thorn in my side some days, but I am learning to try and be grateful for the pain and joy it brings me. Yes, my Crohn’s brings me joy! I wouldn’t be who I am without my Crohns. Lots of people have come and gone in my life since my diagnosis; and I’m sure there are many more to follow, but I will always have Bernie with me. I have to grow to love her; appreciate her and most of all, listen to her.
