Embracing Change

First off I would like to say thank you. I felt terrible for the lack of updating my blog (which I will explain in a bit) and pondered if it was worth continuing to write in this blog. Although a part of me started this blog to help myself during this journey, I also startedContinue reading “Embracing Change”

Sorry not Sorry- Being Unapologetic

I’m sure anyone with a chronic illness has been there. Where you find yourself apologizing for everything and excusing yourself for things that are usually out of your control. I find especially with invisible illnesses, it’s a lot trickier to tread around this. By definition I have a disability. Do I look like it? No?Continue reading “Sorry not Sorry- Being Unapologetic”

Getting Caught in the “What if’s”

I saw my doctor yesterday for my usual monthly follow up. We are down to 7.5 mg of Prednisone and I finally got the okay to continue weaning off them. We seem to be teetering on this point where I am not quite sick but not quite better. So he kind of just threw hisContinue reading “Getting Caught in the “What if’s””

Happy 1 Year to Me

Well, today is officially the day where one year ago I underwent a colonoscopy and was officially diagnosed. Although I made a post not that long ago about first being sick, your diagnosis date is a pretty monumental day.

ButContinue reading “I went to a support group & it was great”

Happy 1 Year of Being Shitty Colon !

Can you believe it’s already been a year? Because I can’t. And let’s get specific here. It’s been a year today that I first noticed there was something off with my body, so technically the first day my body decided to show me that we were sick. I know most people are thinking “why wouldn’tContinue reading “Happy 1 Year of Being Shitty Colon !”

#mentalhealthawarenessday

Mental health has become something so popularly talked about in the last 10 years. It seems to be on the rise! Does that mean more people are getting sick or that we’re just talking about it more? Maybe a bit of both? I’m currently doing my masters in counselling psychology and have always had aContinue reading “#mentalhealthawarenessday”
