Summer time sadness

crohnsgirlinpain:

The sun is shining and the birds are singing but I’m on the sofa with a hot water bottle.
Anyone else find winter is much easier to be sick in?! I know that sounds weird but when it’s winter I don’t feel guilty for being indoors and all wrapped up. Summer time for me is guilt time.

I know what you mean. In Winter everyone is wrapped up indoors!!

Mental Block

Okay guys, I’m having a very bad problem.

I was meant to take my Humira on Thursday but when it came to having it, I froze up once I put the pen to my leg.

The last time I injected it hurt more than usual and I really didn’t like it

I had never had a problem doing it until now.

I think that the bad injection I had 2 weeks ago has caused me to lose all confidence doing it.

Has anyone else experienced this?

How did you overcome it?

Every time I go to push the trigger my brain just goes, “no, nope” and I freeze.

Then the more I think about it the worse it becomes.

Eating for an active lifestyle

Okay, I may have missed an update last week.

This week I’m having an issue. Now that my crohns is under control I have become more and more active to the point where I am captain of a university football team, karting and going to the gym regularly. In the summer I play cricket as well as running when I have the time. 

One thing I am struggling with is trying to eat clean and healthy without upsetting my crohns.

I am also at uni, as some of you know, so I need meals and recipes that are quick and easy to follow.

Does anyone have any suggestions of recipes or where to look for them?

Stay Strong!

nomadic-mantra:

If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth. 

Beautiful

Kidney Stone?

I’m currently laid in bed with pain in my right side. It doesn’t feel like my strictures as there is no digestive noises.

The pain comes and goes and feels like something might be moving but I can’t pin point it.

I’m not nauseous, sweating or in severe pain but I am struggling to sleep.

Has anyone else experienced this?

The more it goes on, the more I think it feels like a kidney stone.
