Hello, everyone. Welcome to the blog portion of the site. Within each blog I will talk about tips when dealing with Crohn’s, personal experiences, hair loss, self image, depression and even sometimes funny interactions with others. There will also be interviews with others and their experiences as well. I make Youtube videos as well which are posted under my “Videos” page on here. Those take a little longer to be posted, so chances are there will be more blog posts than videos.
I am very involved with writing and absolutely love doing it so I figured why not start a blog as well! My whole life has changed since being diagnosed and I’m going to be very positive and really just want to help others while they deal with it too. Crohn’s is a very difficult and frustrating disease. I personally see a therapist and I’m in a support group and if you are suffering from Crohn’s and struggling, I highly suggest doing the same. My support group ison facebook and for women only, and truthfully, I’m not sure what I’d do without those beautiful lovely ladies. They have some amazing advice and I’ve met some wonderful people. Everyone with Crohn’s experiences different things. We all have our own story, so please feel free to reach out to me with yours if you’d like to just talk to someone or if you want me to publish it! I’d be happy to do it under anon as well if you don’t feel comfortable with your name on here. Just let me know. We all have a story and they should be told. You are not alone!
I’ll also be tackling some depression subjects for I have suffered from depression since I was twelve. So I’d love to talk with you about that as well. People with Crohn’s are 3x more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety. I also will go into talking about my infusions. Every 8 weeks for the rest of my life I receive infusions from an oncology center where the pump medicine into me for a few hours. I happen to be on Remicade.
I’m not a professional anything. I’m just merely a young girl wanting to share her experiences and journey through a sickly life. Thank you for following along with me and I hope I can help. (:
