I’ve neglected posting for two weeks due to being so busy and honestly having what I call a brain fart. I couldn’t think of anything to write!Whenever I did think of something I discouraged myself. Well, it’s always okay to take a break from all things once in a while.
From resentment to gratitude.
Many of my days prior and post diagnosis were spent in resentment. Questioning why this was the fate chosen for me was a constant thing for 3 months. Irrational thoughts infiltrated my brain – I was almost on the verge of giving up. I could easily say it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever endured or ever will matter of fact.
Somehow , during this dark, depressive, bleak time. I lost myself , and found myself in ways I could never imagine. I have become so resilient , compassionate and above all GRATEFUL for every experience. I beat the odds placed against me and beyond. My new found perspective of life has given me so much genuine happiness and joy .
Being diagnosed with Crohns Colitis was the most unpleasant wake up call for me. I now have to go extra lengths to make sure I stay healthy ; consuming a balanced diet, getting the right amount of sleep every night ( people with autoimmune diseases will be able to relate to how fatigued we are all the time)
- Currently , my disease is inactive , I have been in remission for almost three months now meaning I haven’t experienced any related symptoms.
- 6 tablets a day of Mesalazine daily which my body is responding to very well.
- ANNNND I get iron infusions every other month.
- My hospital trips are still frequent and will be for a while.
Although I can’t speak for all. To anybody who has been recently diagnosed , this is sooo cliche but it DOES get better. Just like all things in life, time shifts and new circumstances are created.
