A Letter To My Healing Body

Dear body, Where do I begin? On Tuesday we had our colonoscopy and finally heard news that we have wanted to hear for a long time. We are nearly there. No active inflammation, but we do have quite a bit of healing to do. But we are almost there! Woo! While I was drugged upContinue reading “A Letter To My Healing Body”

2020 what is going on? Update on life & COVID-19

My friends, I can’t even begin to explain what a whirl wind the last few months have been. I had felt so good with the start of 2020 and just feeling like “yes, this is MY year”.

What is a flare up?

As my journey to remission seems to becoming closer, I started to wonder about the future. Will I be symptom free? What does remission feel like? How long will it last?
