You are not a burden

Recently NY Times released an article titled “Is it OK to Dump Him Because of His Medical Condition” (which you can read here). While the letter writer seems to be in a new relationship, her concerns are valid. I think anyone entering into a new relationship where they may not have any experience with somethingContinue reading “You are not a burden”

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”

I’m going to Europe!

Guys this month has been so hectic. Last month of school for kids is always a gong show, meaning long days and energy levels next to nothing. But we got through it all and on top of it all successfully weaned off of prednisone! It’s been officially three weeks and I haven’t regressed. This drugContinue reading “I’m going to Europe!”

Where did time go?!

Clinical Trial Series: Week 16

Well the day has come and passed and we have lived to tell the tale of yet another colonoscopy- except this time it was a sigmoidoscopy.

That enema fleet they giveContinue reading “Clinical Trial Series: Week 16”

This has been the longest I’ve been on prednisone consecutively. Normally I am able to start weaning off of it after 2 weeks, but because ofContinue reading “Things you should do if you are on Prednisone”

Tales from a shower cry session

Two posts in one week, I’m getting a little wild here. But jokes aside, I had a lot of my mind and just feel the need to get it off my chest. Keep in mind, I am super emotionally charged today, so this post may end up not really making sense or having an exactContinue reading “Tales from a shower cry session”

All we need is a little love

YOU GUYS. I have been a little M.I.A hey? So many things have been happening and for once all of them exciting and good. The clinical trial seems to be going well. I even had moments were I didn’t poop for over 24 hours. It was the craziest feeling. The first time it happened IContinue reading “All we need is a little love”
