I Cooked Dinner Today

Good news: I had more energy today than I have in a long time! I took advantage of it by cleaning the bathroom, tidying the living area, making dinner for the crew, and helping with the Messy Mondays video a little bit. I realize that’s not a whole lot for one day, but for me…

Doc Report

Currently, I’m.. Relieved That all the initial consulatations with new doctors are over with. Meeting new doctors is so stressful! From now on when I go to the doctor, I will know who and what to expect, and that will really help my anxiety. The appointment with the surgeon this morning went as well as it…

Sad and Boring

Man, all week I’ve just felt pretty rough. Every day I wake up feeling a little bit worse. I wish I could snap my fingers and skip the next two months! Just snap my fingers and be mostly recovered from surgery and on a new Crohn’s medication that keeps my symptoms under control. Sure, I’d miss…

Making Lists

One Woman’s Boredom is Another Woman’s Luxury

I had enough energy today to get lunch with my family and then watch the football game with Josh’s family! It was a really nice – it’s not often that I get to see every member of my families in one day anymore! But man, it wore me out. I’m staying up to take a pill at…

Drop of a Hat

I wish I understood why I suddenly started feeling so rough after a pretty good week all last week, and why it’s lingering so long. I was being so healthy & proactive last week! It’s frustrating that my health can turn at the drop of a hat like that and I can’t even pinpoint what…

Therapy Session

Days like today make me regret this daily blogging project, because I don’t really know what to say on days like today. I went to bed before the election results were called, but I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t believe the outcome! I wasn’t thrilled about either candidate, but…

Trying to Trust

Last week’s goals: 1. Stick to food plan: A I did a little bit of adjusting on the fly as things came up during the week, but honestly I thought it went really well! 2. Daily exercise: A I did a workout video every day, as part of an accountability group of ladies on facebook.…
