As a 38 year old woman, I never knew that I would have the life experience I’ve received living with Crohn’s. It all started in 2001 with abdominal pain…. The doctor first thought it was my appendix. After that first surgery, they clearly knew it was much more than that.
In 15 months, I had 4 surgeries, lost 18 pounds (at 21, I didn’t have much to lose) and had to live with an ostomy for 4 months due to a perforated bowel.
In and out of the hospital for 9 months, I clearly knew at that point that my life would be different. I got conscious of what food to eat, stabilized myself with natural products and learned to remove anything that would cause stress in my life.
Throughout all this, it made me realize how important each day is … how much you need to live your life and your dreams to the fullest. Sometimes you need to be a little selfish when it comes to your own health and happiness. I try to focus on what Crohn’s brought me instead of what it took from me. Life is much easier with a positive mind!
I’m inviting everyone to join me at the Gutsy Walk in St. Leonard. As a Volunteer Ambassador for Crohn’s & Colitis, I can’t wait to enjoy the third walk in Northern New-Brunswick. Let’s make it stop. For life; TOGETHER! Bring your friends, and let’s have fun!
