My methotrexate is making my life a living hell right now. I give my self the shot on a weekly basis and it makes me nauseous for like half a week. I have a rheumatologist appointment soon so I’m kind of hoping they’ll take me off of it. It would be nice to only be on one chemo instead of two. #lifewithcrohns #invisibleillness #crohnsdisease #chemotherapy #crohnsandcolitis #methotrexate #crohns

I feel this is an important addition to my last post - While I have developed habits to help cope with my depression, I still require medication to stay stable... and that’s OKAY. I am on low doses of Zoloft for anxiety and OCD tendencies, Wellbutrin for seasonal depression, and lunesta to help with sleep. I’ve tried in the past to reduce doses with the intention of stopping, but it just doesn’t work for me. Just like most people with Crohn’s must take medicine long term, even if they are in remission, depression also frequently requires long term treatment. . . . I was in denial for a long time about my mental health. I began showing signs of depression almost immediately after being diagnosed - and who wouldn’t also have a mental response to such extreme physical illness? Still - it was four years before I finally sought out a counselor and another year before I agreed to medication. I convinced myself that I could handle it, and that once I was healthy my mental state would go back to normal (spoiler, it didn’t). A lot like the journey it took for me to agree to surgery and accept my Ostomy, understanding that I needed help and treatment for depression took time. Up until recently I was embarrassed to admit that I take antidepressants, but you know what I’ve learned? SO MANY people take medication for their mental health - so it’s time we start talking about it more openly.

Focus on your goals. Don’t worry about anything else. Also @killrobbailey new album is amazing.

Have y’all seen the viral video of @katelyn_ohashi and her perfect 10 performance? I have and I was just blown away by her smiles and facial expressions. I just learned that she shares something in common with a lot of us- she has IBD, namely, ulcerative colitis. In this article, she shares about her chronic illness and how much it can affect her life. I’m so grateful for how she shared the real parts of the disease. She didn’t gloss over it but went right in! I’m also wowed by her determination to keep doing what she loves and excels at! She’s definitely an inspiration! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for @katelyn_ohashi! . . #uc #ulcerativecolitis #ulcerativecolitisfighter #crohns #ibd #crohnsdisease

We can be grateful and not happy at the same time. . I am grateful for many things which use to be a concept I could not grasp. My grandmother would say "count your blessings", my mom would say "just be grateful for the now". And I could not understand any of that because I thought that gratefulness and happy went hand in hand. I was definitely not happy! But they don't and when I realized that, then I could break it down into smaller pieces. I thought I had to have everything I desired and make it to the point of true happiness, to the depths of my soul happiness otherwise I couldn't be grateful. . I learned about being grateful when I hit rock bottom in 2015 being extremely ill from anemia and crohns since December 2011. I had to find one thing in my life at that time to carry on through the dark and murky waters. One thing that's all I needed. That's all I wanted. So I started a gratitude journal. When I needed it I would write as many things down as I could like others did online, then I would sit looking at the list and think but that doesn't make me happy; not truly happy. So I would draw a line through it until I was down to the one thing that was always there for me, never disappointed me, saved me from the crap that life was and I was shocked to see a single word. . Now? Now I'm grateful for many things, yet I'm not completely happy either. It's because I haven't reached my full potential yet. . I've learned so much in illness and in that time of healing I witnessed awakening. There can't be anything better than finding yourself and knowing what your purpose is. That's gratitude! Now to fulfill that purpose. . Gratitude turns what we have into enough. I love this so much! . #grateful #gratitude #gratefulheart #gratefullness #gratitudejournal #gratitudeturnswhatwehaveintoenough #life #crohnsdisease #crohns #crohnsandcolitis #ibd #ibdawareness #ibdwarrior #ibdorknownasinflammatoryboweldisease #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #ibdsurvivor #crohnssurvivor #warrior #survivor #ulcerativecolitis #ibs #crohnsawareness #crohnsawarenessmonth #crohnscolitisawareness #crohnsandcolitisawarenessmonth #workingonme #lifestylechanges

New Years resolution: Don’t play the victim. EVERYONE HAS DIFFICULTIES so complaining probably won’t help you or anyone. I 100% respect the silent warriors who serve others to feel better instead of complaining about how life is hard. I’ve found that gratitude and selfless service go a long way. Let’s all help each other reach our goals in 2019 👊🏽 • • • • #crohns #crohnsdisease #uc #colitis #autoimmunedisease #remicade #humira #health #diet #food #foodporn #fitness #fitnessaddict #fitspo #fitnessmodel #guyswholift #motivation #inspiration #diet #exercise #eatclean #cheatmeal #jacked #active #strong #determination #instagood #wilderaesthetics

Visitors & pastries at the hospital with the [almost] birthday girl! 🥰🎉💃🏼 // I’m hanging out on IV antibiotics for a supposed soft tissue infection. Hopefully I’ll get to keep my shiny new port! Thank you all so wildly much for your encouragement & prayers 💛 // I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. [Psalm 40:1-3] #sufferstrong #weakmadestrong

At the beginning of July, after a scheduled surgery, an emergency surgery that saved my life with an ileostomy, to infections and perc drains, to the belief that this crohns warrior put his double battle axes on the shelf. He stepped off the battlefield--not knowing that the battle had just begun. This is the Crohns Warrior Chronicles. I am not my disease. I am not Crohns, and yet, with illnesses of the chronic kind, sometimes it takes over; it eats at the body and the mind.

Grass fed/finished bison burgers were on the menu earlier this week - and I enjoyed them so much that I ate two each night and my meal prep didn't last me until Friday 😭 Bison is flavorful, lean, and high in iron and B vitamins. Meal deets: Bison burger(s) cooked to medium rare, brussel sprouts, and a stir fry of butternut squash noodles, cauliflower rice, onion, bell peppers, and flax seed. This is a perfect #hormonehealth meal, which I am working on a longer post about soon. Have a terrific Friday! . . . . . #health #healthy #healthyfood #cleaneating #nutrition #guthealth #wholefoods #realfood #f52grams #crohns #ibs #fitness #gains #paleo #keto #highfat #fat #healthyfat #meatheals #meat #whole30 #yes2meat #glutenfree #dairyfree #foodfreedom #dinner #bison #grassfed #autoimmunepaleo

Today started out rough, as my Crohn’s disease decided it had enough of travel & “healthy” fruits & veggies. So no makeup, just lashes ... and I don’t care because we are vacation. 😂 But thankfully, I rallied to go to Lola’s for sunset. 💕 #yeswenamedourdogafterapiginabar #crohns #sunset #lolas #avellanas #costarica #vacation

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her timer. She didn’t make a public announcement. She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just LET GO. . There was no one around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. There was no one to thank her or praise her. There was no effort. There was no struggle. Just a small smile that came over her face... … as she just LET GO.

Managing Food Anxiety with #ibd . . Food is such an important part of how we engage with other people and get together with friends and family. Coming from an Italian and French family, we are constantly gathering around the table for meals together. However, using food as a means to socialize can be challenging for people with IBD. . . I love food so much, but for parts of my life I have also hated it. I have always known that I need food to live, but finding WHAT food works for me has been the ongoing challenge of my life. (And I'm sure MANY of you can relate with that feeling). . . Throughout the 10years of having Crohn's disease I have learnt more and more about what foods are working for me. Some things have changed throughout time, and some have remained the same. But, throughout that journey I have never struggled more with food than the few years leading up to my bowel resection. I had a narrowing in my intestine which caused me a crazy amount of pain and bloating everytime I ate. I tried so many #diets, but time and time again it continued. . . To make a long story short, I know what it feels like to have a meal in front of you and to not want to eat in fear of the pain that comes next. BUT, I NEVER LET IT STOP ME. I HAVE said no to dinners out with friends, I HAVE said no to dessert, I HAVE said no to a meal before. But, none the less I persisted. . . It is so important to know your boundaries, but to also push past them. If I said no everytime I was scared of a stomach ache, I would have never made so many memories around the table with friends. And although the picture above was from a dinner party last Saturday with friends, and I was fine and had no problems. I know that the same situation may have caused me #pain and #anxiety 6 months ago. . . If you made it to the end of this post, know that you are not alone in your fear of food. But, also know that you can make it past it.💜 (However, if you do find it too much to handle and are concerned about your health, please do reach out to a doctor if you feel you may have a eating disorder. There is no shame in seeking help.) . . #crohns #colitis #ibd #food #fear #crohnswarrior #chronicillness #fear

Mouthwatering 🤤 nuff said!! I don’t usually do well with potatoes, so I take the skins off, and having a sausage link is unheard of. I think in big part that I’m able eat a wider variety of foods for several weeks directly after my infusions. Just wish the positive effects lasted longer than 3-4 weeks at a time.

I made it 18 days into the New Year before my first unexpected surgery was planned. It isn't a big one, probably only two days in hospital. As of now I have 3 surgeries I know of for this year. I find the tedium of illness nearly out weights the uncertainty. In the meantime I have things to do, so Fu#k Off #crohns #spoonie #kissmybigwhiteass

Not many people would sit with you in hospital for more than 14hours. But I’m so grateful for this weirdo to have done exactly that.

Little Mashies Cultured Carrots (full recipe littlemashies.com) Ingredients: 6-8 organic carrots, sliced into sticks 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced 2 fresh kaffir lime leaves, stalks removed 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated 20g celtic sea salt 1L filtered water Method Step 1: Add the salt to the water to make the brine mixture. For firm vegetables we always make a 2% brine, but it is acceptable to make it anywhere between 2-3.5%. Stir to dissolve the salt and set the mixture to the side. Step 2: Wash carrots, remove stems and slice them into 0.5cm thick sticks. It’s great if you can cut them so that they are about an inch or so under the height of the mason jar. Step 3: Add the garlic, ginger and kaffir lime leaves to the bottom of the mason jar. Step 4: Arrange the carrot sticks in a vertical fashion inside the jar. Your aim is to squeeze in as many sticks as possible so that they are all wedged in tightly and unable to come loose. Step 5: Pour the brine into the jar, covering the carrots and filling to about 1 inch below the top of the jar. (Head to littlemashies.com for rest of the recipe)

Have a read of this if you want to be healthier in 2019 😉 Danielle's amazing Testimonal in her words about her journey with #crohns FEEL FREE TO SHARE Just thought I'd share my story for those who haven't heard it before..... I was diagnosed with crohn's disease in 2009, I started Juice Plus to lose weight and improve my health. Before I started 2 years ago I had a terrible diet, I dont eat meat and I NEVER ate ANY fruit and veg EVER!! I'm quite certain thats why I have CD as they dont know what causes it but I'm sure my poor diet had something to do with it. I lived on pasta, pizza, bread, chocolate and wine and I had piled weight on after having my son in 2011. I would get flare ups which caused constant diarrhea, sickness, stomach pain and fatigue, skin problems on my hands and feet, itchy skin that kept me awake at night and inflammation in my eyes (uveitis) which was treated with steroids. I started the plan in Feb 2014, I lost 22lb by the April and felt fantastic. I was the lightest I'd been for a very long time, I was eating healthier and so was my son. That 2 years ago seems like a lifetime ago....I am now so different, I eat lots of fruit and veg and actually chose those before anything else. I always opt for the healthier option and always think about what I'm putting into my body. I haven't had a crohn's flare for the last 2 years, I haven't had uveitis, I haven't had any skin problems, I dont get itchy skin, my gums dont bleed anymore, I no longer get heartburn every day, I have more energy, my hair and nails are longer than ever, my skin is clear, I sleep better and to top it all off my 5 year old eats better than he ever has and I know I'm giving us the both the best I can :) #diet #healthyfood #health #healthylifestyle #diet #healthyweightloss #juiceplus #livehealthy #naturalfruits #healthyweightgain #balnceddiet #healthymealplans #stayhealthy #healthandfitness #juiceplus #healthyshakes #healthyhair #healthynails #healthyskin #naturalberries #naturalfruits #naturalvegetables #healtystart #dietplan #fruitcapsules #vegcapsules #berrycapsules #chocolateshake #vanillashake

The word “meraki” is Greek for doing something with so much love and devotion that you leave a piece of your soul in it. #ibdsuperheroes #ibdawareness #crohns #colitis #ibd #crohnsdisease #ulcerativecolitis #ibdawareness #ostomy #ostomyawareness

This disease is misunderstood. I've repeatedly been told that I just need to go the bathroom or need to eat healthy. I could eat pizza and beer or salads and water and it all impacts me. It's time to take a stand! #crohns #invisibledisease #invisibleillness #uc #ulcerativecolitis #idbsucks #timetoheal #stopcomparing #startunderstanding

If anyone has ever doubted my willingness to try anything, booya! 🐙Fresh grilled octopus from @elpescadorfishmarket. I moved the red peppers to the side though. 🤣 * #autoimmune #crohns #ibd #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #seafood #youonlyliveonce

It wasn’t until I was sick that I learned how negatively impactful it can be to stay down when things aren’t going right. Saying things like “just my luck,” or “of course that happened to me,” is self deprecating and it becomes hard to move out of that mindset. When we put ourselves down because things aren’t going right, we tend to stay there. It becomes our comfortable place. I have learned a few things since being sick; 1) some things are just not worth complaining about 2) being down is normal, staying down is defeat and we are all stronger than that. Just remember life isn’t against you, obstacles may arise and the only way you will stay down from them is if you’re against yourself.

Dinner: Flaky White Fish cooked in a tomato, paprika and coconut milk broth. Garlicky Broccoli Rabe and a big juicy heirloom tomato slice on the side. All of it got some love in the form of a scattering of olive and thyme roasted sea salt. This salt is INSANE! Briny, salty, herby deliciousness. Made a big batch and am imagining all the things I will be sprinkling it on this weekend 🤔. To make, in my food processor I added Celtic Grey Salt, Manzanita Olives and Fresh Thyme. I gave it a whirl, spread it onto a sheet pan and baked it at 250 degrees for about 25 minutes until it was good and dry. Broke it up and sprinkled it all over my dinner 😋.

I've been taking my stretching more seriously lately. It's only been a couple of weeks since I attempted my failed front walkover, but I'm starting to notice some improvement in my flexibility and even a bit of muscle memory coming back (no back walkover yet, I want to really get my back flexible...but I've been doing cartwheels and round offs). . In another harebrained idea of mine, I asked Jeff to spot me on a back walkover about a week ago. He'd never spotted anyone doing that before and he's also 6'4" compared to my 5'3"...needless to say, it didn't go so well. I slipped and he didn't know what to do, then I fell and he pulled a muscle in his neck...I think I'll find someone who knows how to spot next time, lol . Even though these gymnastic moves are super basic and simple, I've been having a lot of fun moving my body through space and using my muscles in new (yet old) ways. I feel more agile and energetic than I have in years, so we'll see what lies ahead! . . . . #yoga #stretching #backbend #backarch #movement #fitnessmotivation #workoutmotivation #yogaathome #homeworkout #homegym #flexibility #crohnsfitnessfood #crohns #ibdawareness #crohnsstrong #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #ibd #chronicillness #crohnsawareness #crohnsfighter #crohnsandcolitis #ibdwarrior #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #inflammation #myibd

Getting wedding ready over here... But before I spill how I grew my hair 18” 🙊, let’s talk hair loss. Because it SUCKS and it’s a huge part of living with autoimmune disease. Whether it’s my Crohns that sometimes makes nutrient absorption hard; an MCTD flare where my hair starts falling out and thinning; or my hypothyroid which has made my hair brittle, thin, and shed like crazy (ugh); I feel like I’m constantly thinking about my hair. Seriously. ‘Can someone see my scalp? Is it falling out again? What the heck is that new growth doing?? Should I cut it off again? But then will there be ‘see-through’? What if I up my zinc?...’ you know what I’m talking about. It never shuts off for me because hair has always been tied to my self esteem and body image. So in my mind’s eye I have long hair on my wedding day. But even with the gentlest processes and the most vitamins and supplements I’m simply not going to get there. I’m cool with that, but I still see me in a white dress with some length happening. I didn’t want to go back to fusion or bond based extensions because they looked amazing, but they killed what was left on my head. I was researching tape-ins for over a year, along with micro bead options, but was even worried about the adhesive and the tension, respectively. I love the idea of a halo piece, but my hair just isn’t long or thick enough in the right places to make it look convincing; and I wasn’t ready for a wig investment. Clip-ins usually show in my hair because it’s so fine, but then I found these guys! And YES they are clip-ins, and nope I can’t feel any tension and there was no teasing. They were even customized for me (trimmed/shaped only - the colour just happens to be perfect)! The big difference is that there’s only 2 pieces - not like 7 which on my head just looks like I’m wearing a really creepy hair hat and stresses my scalp even more. So now I can enjoy my shorter hair, keep growing it and getting it stronger, and can be a mermaid any time I want! IN YOUR FACE, FLARE! Let me know if you’ve ever tried hair pieces, what your favourite options are! I tagged ‘Locks & Mane’ so if you like mine, check them out! 🥰❤️😘

Do take any daily supplements? If you said yes, then chances are you are taking either a multi-vitamin, or a probiotic! Amiright?!? Multi-vitamins and probiotics are the top 2 supplements taken by humans...but guess who else needs both of these?! You got it!! Our little fur babies! They have many of the same gut related problems as humans, and also many of the same vitamin deficiencies. This is due to many factors including poor quality food production and exposure to hundreds of toxins. If you want to learn more about this check our blog (#linkinbio ) to read all about it! Also, pictured here is our daily multivitamin for dogs and cats, and our probiotics for dogs and cats!! Keep your pets healthy and pick some up today! You can find these on our website or your local pet and health foods stores!
