Pre-colonoscopy misery


Hi, Me again - once again in a bad mood, feeling down due to tomorrow's ordeal. Have ANOTHER colonoscopy- maybe my 4th or 5th one? I am only 22-  most of my friends don't even know what one is, let alone are a regular at it. And that, is just depressing. Its a glorious day…

Just call me whale woman.


I am so fed up right now. I feel like no job wants me, I have no money to move out, my family is falling apart like theres no tomorrow and to top it off? I FOUND STRETCH MARKS ON MY THIGH. So I am fucking fat too. Great. Sorry for swearing, I try not…

The quicker today ends the better 


I am having a serious bum of a day right now  I guess it was fine, I just wish it would have been better. Enjoy a broken up, rambling post. Apologies.  Have been SO tired all day, so so tired and struggling. It makes work harder and life harder and being happy harder.  Here is…

Here we go again…


So, since my last post everything has shifted a little, with having to consider crohns back in my life again. Am having to work very hard not to throw a massive tantrum and sulk about how unfair this turn of events is, but so far I'm trying to crack on with life.  Had some tests…

Cold, cold go away, come again…never.


I am ill. Still. Again. Continuing. BLEUGH. I have been ill for at least the last three weeks - before you panic I mean "normal person ill" not Crohns ill *. I have a constant cold, cough, general un-wellness. Not fun! I also developed these weird lumps down my neck, which were a little worrying…

I think the hospitals miss me


So, its been 10 days since my last blood test and about Christmas since anything more intrusive / intensive than that has happened - but it was getting too good to last! Before you panic, Crohns has not returned (or at least not that I know of, yet) but my doctor yesterday asked me to…

Absence makes the heart grow fonder…


How weird, I have been posting here for about 6 months now - and I think these last two weeks are the longest time between posts, and I most definitely missed it! Here's hoping its not going to become an addiction (maybe I could blog about that? the irony 😉 )Anyway, the reason I haven't…

Birthdays, Cake and Itching


So I went home for this weekend for one of my little brothers birthdays - he was 3 on sunday, and literally adorable! We had such a lovely weekend in the sun, and my other brother was home too which was really nice 🙂 had  a family filled weekend, and it was just what I…


And it strikes again...Spotted this as I was scrolling through the news earlier today - always alert for Crohns-related articles! (How sad does that make me sound!) I don't know if it is just the fact that I am really tired (and yes, a little hungover still) but it really annoyed me how the article made…

Back on track?


FINALLY feeling like a normal person again, back at uni, back in modules, back to going out - the whole deal - wooo!Been loving being back at university, and so far (touch wood) everything has gone really well, not feeling tired and managing to cope with the workload, going to the gym and trying to…
