You have what???….My journey with UC

Comfortably Happy

I used think eggs bothered me… too much sulfur

I used to think maybe avocados bothered me too.. too rich in fiber

I used to think white bread was secretly rotting my insides.

This long journey has taught me not to fear trying anything that might make this disease more comfortable.

And I’m comfortably happy eating all these foods again & more. I have to say Humira has been a game changer.

Old Fashion

Call me old fashion… lol but I find a whiskey old fashion a refreshing alternative when traveling for work.

U Did It!!

I have to say this made me smile tonight…new sharps container in the mail has this flippy message thing on the lid I had not seen until just now. The jab hurt more than normal… only Humira folks understand and for all the obnoxious material that AbbVie sends… I’ll keep this one : )

Running into a road block.. 👟👟

At this point I am 100% convinced that stepping up my running game is a flare trigger. It’s really hard for me to not intensify my workouts when it becomes easy or not challenging. I still believe In Humira, hopefully this is a quick bump in the road. This journey is definitely not a straight road!

Not So Cool…

My poor mans travel pack for my Humira Pen was flagged by TSA. Note to self… the $1.00 ice pack purchased doesn’t cut it. They let me through but explained weak ice packs if thawing is not a good idea. It could be portrayed as something else.

“Iffy”

Oooo when that “iffy” feeling creeps in…Thank God for workout videos, Target’s selection of yoga mats & hand weights!

Something different I am trying is that I vowed to go super slow in regaining my fitness health once I found a prescription cocktail therapy that I responded to. I tried too many times to exercise hard only to have my symptoms get worse. If only I was “more fit” it would go away. Um no.. farthest from the truth. Its easy to get wrapped up and compare yourself to those who do not have an autoimmune disease like IBD.

New Year – New Strong

Something is different this year. Even the geranium is blossoming in January!

I am learning a new strong. Learning to recognize what and how healthy feels good again. Its not always that easy but I am excited!! I feel for nano seconds of the day I forget I have IBD… crazy! : )

Pants That Fit…This is New

Small issue but its real. It feels weird! I am actually uncomfortable, but my pants fit like they ‘re supposed to I think. A lot of us with IBD tend to be under weight. I’ve been used to my pants, shorts or skirts always to be on the loose side & I admit I secretly liked it. I wanted to share because I can’t be the only one with this new beginning of my road to remission 🙂

Keeping in check…

…How good days never should be taken for granted. A quick hike in the woods on this crisp Dec morning. Though my bladder said I should have gone before I started…lol… but whose complaining? Happy Sunday to all.

Winging It

Knowing the window of time between your first cup of joe and getting on the plane. Traveling doesn’t always allow me to be on “schedule”… especially for a 7 am flight…I accept that more times than not I have to just wing it and keep my fingers crossed all goes well.
