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”. Nah, bish- this apparently is no one’s year. First of all my motivation to get back to thisContinue reading “2020 what is going on? Update on life & COVID-19”

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.

As such, I thought it would be a good idea to create a series or thread specifically for the clinical trial where I talk abut my experience. I think it would be important because a) this is very likely a drugContinue reading “Clinical Trial Series: Intro”

Happy Holidays

Hello dear friends, I hope everyone’s holiday season has been well so far. If you are like me, then you are probably thinking the same thing “Thank god we survived”. Holidays are so magical and I love Christmas with every fibre in my being, but it is freaking exhausting. Boxing day was spent in aContinue reading “Happy Holidays”

I survived another scope & lived to tell the tale

But actually. Scopes are a terrible experience. And a sigmoidoscopy? JUST AS TERRIBLE. At least for me it was. So here is the overview. Leading up to the weak of my scope I felt. I mean a little more off than usual, but that was because I was off my routine. For 5 days IContinue reading “I survived another scope & lived to tell the tale”
