Not Random at All…

Part of coping with IBD is having a sense of control with the what ifs…. I cary a travel pouch full of items for my what ifs. I recently left mine at the hotel and had to build a new one.

Tums, Imodium, bandaids, lady items, prescriptions, Pep-to, sinus stuff, flashlight, bathroom spray, Tylenol….

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 : )

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.

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.

Soup Season My Friend Has Arrived

Its official! Soup Season has arrived : )

I have such a close relationship with soup. Like today, on a chilly fall Sunday, just making homemade soup in the kitchen I find comfort. Even from a can, soup has always been my best friend in the lowest of IBD days. There is something so healing about a bowl a soup. Today Asiago cheese : )
