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…
