My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Thoracic Thoracic seems to be another clinic that I frequent. I have suffered from rib pain for about a year now. Sudden onset of pain, with two major areas of focus on my left side. We are not 100% certain that these pains are related or not. Because there is so much to cover in… Continue reading My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

TWO MONTHS TIME | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Well, shit. It has been over a month, almost two, since my last blog post, and it'll probably be exactly two months time by the time I get this written and edited, photos added and the post uploaded.

May Delays | It Could Be Worse Blog

No Luck of the Irish for Me

2 Year Anniversary of Crohn’s Diagnosis Day | It Could Be Worse Blog

It's been 2 years! I believe in celebrating milestones, whether good or bad, and today marks my 2-year anniversary of my Crohn's disease diagnosis. I was given a gift, a curse, a problem but no cure.

Always Another Appointment | It Could Be Worse Blog

Damn. Another two weeks have gone by since my February post, with a few more appointments and doctor visits, and even more new consultations added. With my Crohn's disease journey, I've not felt any different having started the Stelara. I had my follow-up with GI, Dr. S, this past week, and I got to explain everything to… Continue reading Always Another Appointment | It Could Be Worse Blog
