😓


I am beyond sick of people telling me I am young and can stay up late and how it's uncool of me to be going to bed at 10. I'm sorry do you think I don't know that? Do you think I'm not aware that everyone else my age can handle this better than I…

Crohns is a bitch.


im done with all the nice talks and the motivational posts, they are not okay for today.  Just finished university forever yesterday- happy days! Went out last night and woke up this morning with crohns pains live and kicking ; and for anybody reading who thinks I'm overreacting with a hangover you have quite clearly…

:'(


got a call from the hospital to say my TB results were inconclusive, most likely 'because of the steroids I'm on' although I haven't been on any for 18 months or so....so they actually have no idea why it didn't work. So. Great.  Back to the hospital on Monday for more blood tests. And in…

Lifes a bitch.


Ciao amigos. Having a down one today, as the title might suggest! I am just feeling like life is SO unfair, and I needed a moan. Why is it that I cannot sort out my future, my job, my place to live? why is it that this stresses me out so much? Why is it…

Fatigue has struck…


Just. So. Tired. All. The. Time had 10 hours sleep last night, been awake for just under 2 and my eyes are already so heavy I am struggling to concentrate and my body feels like it has been filled with sand and therefore weighs ten time more. I woke up this morning so positive, so…

Officially Back. Officially Scared. Officially Sad.


Hi all, Got told on Tuesday that my Crohns is almost definitely officially back. The pain, the tiredness, the bathroom trips, the blood results...all adding up to some "not good news" as everyone refers to it. Your bloody right its not good news. I could write an entire essay rambling away about how unfair I…

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…

Why does life hit you all at once?


Maybe I am being dramatic, some people will say I am being an attention seeker, but as of 9am this morning when I found out my exam dates these are some of the things on my to do list, and I am stressing the hell out: -finish coursework -send all coursework recorded delivery to university…

just keep swimming…just keep swimming…


  I highly doubt that it is only me that feels this way, in fact I have heard others express these feelings before - but maybe it does everybody good to know that others get stuck in this rut too? The one where you feel like you FINALLY have got things starting to move forward…


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…
