How Crohn’s Made Me Love Myself!
Last updated: September 2021
I’ve suffered so much pain and anxiety, enough for 100 lifetimes. I have experienced every complication, infection, uncomfortable procedures, so much crying, so much darkness.
One day I was released from a 4 month hospitalization, and I left the hospital feeling free and calm. That was almost 3 years ago, and every single day since, I think about how grateful I am to be alive, breathing, putting on makeup, and not crawling in pain to the washroom 45 times a day. Since I’ve been on Humira injections, my life has improved a huge amount. My pain is 90% gone. My bowel movements are solid and I go once a day. How did I go from complete darkness to these bright sunny days?
