2020 Visions | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

I ended 2019 with a double blog post, Colonoscopy #5 and Thoracic Follow-Up. At the end of November and beginning of December, I had been really sick, and I had been avoiding people and doing anything I could to rid myself of that cold. I had mentioned previously that I was coughing so much -… Continue reading 2020 Visions | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Perianal Abscess #2 in My Crohn’s Disease Journey | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Since I already wrote about my Rib Plating Surgery, this blog will focus on my Crohn's Disease. Expect a blog focusing on my ganglion cyst and hand troubles to follow. In my Crohn's disease world, things are about the same, which means chaos ensues. To catch you up, I have mentioned many times before that… Continue reading Perianal Abscess #2 in My Crohn’s Disease Journey | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

I suppose I will just continue where I left off in my last blog, My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy, where I talked about my thoracic rib appointments. In that blog, I didn't necessarily discuss anything but thoracic issues. The rest, well, is just as chaotic. In the coming days, I will be trying to catch… Continue reading Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

Lumpy, the Ganglion Cyst, a Trilogy

Since this blog began a few years ago, I've always suffered hand pains and within the last year, I have had a ganglion cyst develop. I fell on my hands in January of 2016 and ended up tearing a ligament in my left hand. This tear went unnoticed, I thought nothing of the bruising and… Continue reading Lumpy, the Ganglion Cyst, a Trilogy

No Luck of the Irish for Me

And then, of course, Saturdays post happened - Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down - and I couldn't focus on this post… Continue reading No Luck of the Irish for Me
