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.

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! : )

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.

Yogurt Schmogurt

I’ve fallen off the Yogurt wagon

I’ll buy the plain
I’ll buy the organic
I’ll buy the Greek
I’ll make my own
I’ll buy bulk
I bring it everywhere
Mix fresh fruit
I have never ever had a craving for yogurt!
I believe in it
I mindfully forget it’s in the fridge
My love hate relationship for yogurt continues

The small lessons count more

This ole guy can get me to walk him in any weather condition…. He really is quite stubborn and set in his ways. I was going to skip today..it really is just a bit too humid, BUT he got me! He teaches me all too many times to enjoy the moment and be present more often. I hope I am active, happy and grouchy as he is when I turn 12 ( 80 like in people yrs )
