Living with Crohn’s

20140405-112014.jpg
I’ve gained
15 lbs
In one month
That puts me at
157??
Now I’ve
been at this for three months
It feels like
This working out thing
Isn’t working out
But I feel great
So that’s something
And I’m hungry
All the tiiiime

But I will tell you this
Everyone tells you
‘eat what you want You’re young’
This is a lie
You are what you eat
I almost died
twice
because of what I was eating
The American diet
Will kill you
I had no energy
I was depressed
And no appetite
But I am finally enjoying
Energy
And
I feel great
If I could tell you one thing
It would be
Surround yourself
With people who believe in you
We need human contact
Isolation will not help you
“These are the days that must happen to you” -Whitman
Use them to make memories
Live your life
You only get one

  1. I don’t get to eat what I want… I have IBS and am perpetually anemic with Raynauds. Beautifully written and told. I know how it feels.
