Chronic Illness Can Go Kick Rocks

Standard

Today was a rough day, as they all have been for a couple of weeks now. My Crohns Disease seems to have left the Remission parking space it had occupied for almost a year.

Don’t get me wrong, I had a few “mini-flares” but nothing longer than just a couple of days. This weekend though, it progressively got worse and today I called one of my doctors. I was lucky to get in to get some IV fluids, potassium and steroids, and I’m hoping that will kick me back into remission. We shall see I guess.

It’s like my body just wanted to remind me that my Crohns is still around, I’ve been dealing primarily with my heart crap, I almost forgot about IBD. So there I was, getting back to normal life, and my intestines nope-ed right the hell out of normalcy.

Ah well, everything else in my life is going pretty nicely. If anything, I’ll just use this as an opportunity to appreciate what and who I do have in my little world. Nothing like a shot of reality to help out with that.

Here’s to another 30 years pushing forward! Happy Birthday to me! Last day of 29 will be spent reflecting. :)

  1. Happy birthday. I hope the Crohn’s gives you a spontaneous remission as a birthday present. (Yeah, I know.) And welcome to the 30s. They are so much better than the 20s.
