My journey with Crohn’s

My journey started close to ten years ago now when I believed I had food poisoning but it when on for too long. I remember going back and forth to the hospital for antiemetics and pain killers and on my third visit I was transferred and admitted. A week later I finally had a diagnosis, not what I hoped. The 1st 4 years were up and down and I was hospitalized several times. Humira is my current treatment and has been for 6 years and while I still have some rough days but I’m doing much better. I have nausea most days and some pain. I also suffer from migraines and frequently live with a headache. I have learned to live life as full as I can exercising and trying to eat organic, gmo free, pesticides free, antibiotics free, steroids free. This has helped contribute to my remission.

    I learned to listen to my body. When I eat something that hurts I try to avoid it next time or eat less of it. Since I have no relatives with IBD I knew it must environmental so I decides to make my food more natural. I learned to read labels more and looking for local foods. When I was younger we ate food from my grandparents farm so I have gone back to this natural choice. I started slowly exercising started with yoga and slowly added cardio and strength training using pop sugar app for my tablet.
