This morning, I woke up to a startling realization: I was back in the hospital.


Yup. Turns out that 20+ admissions since 2007 for incision & drainage of abscess, multiple abscess, fistulotomy’s are not the end of the line on this Crohn’s crazy train. Not to speak of the two small bowel resections in 2004 and spring of 2016.

So, hopefully, you’ll keep reading articles like these and find some sort of comfort in my pain, or, perhaps if nothing else, just maybe,some (extra) courage.

Keep on goin’ & doin’ the best you can.

Post Script: Remember you may have Crohn’s disease, but Crohn’s disease doesn’t have you, until you let it. You are so much more than CD, IBS, UC or whatever inflammatory bowel disease you may be dealing with.
