Entyvio Infusion #2

I don't really know what has come over me.  More and more time passes and I forget to update you on my blog.  But, hopefully, that will change soon and I can get back into a habit of posting consistently. In just 3 days, I will complete the last of my classes at the University… Continue reading Entyvio Infusion #2

Two-Step TB Test – WK 1

As well as another late blog post week, this week is a short week. If you notice, last week's blog, Better Late Than Never, was posted on Tuesday rather than last Sunday. Wednesday began this short week filled with doctors appointments, thrift stores, family, and of course, writing and coffee. Wednesday and Friday I'll call… Continue reading Two-Step TB Test – WK 1

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

A year ago today I was given a gift, a curse, a problem but no cure. I was given a life long battle that I would have to fight against every day.

This… Continue reading The Week In Between

Happy with My Crohn’s Disease

I know for a couple of my previous posts I have been kind of a ‘Negative Nancy’, and after a loooong talk with Philip, I am trying to maintain a positive outlook, because I WILL eventually feel better.

Bad Luck & Bad Timing…

Since my rant on Sunday, I have been further blocked from the Crohn's group on Facebook, to where I can no longer see them, so I have that going for me. (See Open Letter) Monday I began the Topamax medication, and I can already sense a delay in my mind, where I am searching for… Continue reading Bad Luck & Bad Timing…
