Secret Thoughts & Feelings

⚠ Trigger Warning: this post discusses depression, anxiety, and suicide. ⚠ This past March I tried to kill myself and only four people truly knew about it. Philip. My sister. Her husband. And the police officer who visited the house -after my sister called them that night. That's it. It wasn't glamorous, it was ugly. … Continue reading Secret Thoughts & Feelings

10 Days Later

My last blog post was around 10 days ago. What a slacker I feel like lately. To be fair, I have been busier than usual and my body is still adjusting to running around all the time. I have been pushing myself nonstop it seems.  I do too much and I inevitably regret it for … Continue reading 10 Days Later

Eggshell Days

Friday night after my last blog post, It Could Be Worse, Philip and I went out to dinner for 'date night' at a restaurant nearby.  The restaurant itself was nice, but I was slightly let down because the food was highly overrated.

Friday after my infusion, I posted Remicade Day #2 right at … Continue reading Time Wasted

Remicade Infusion Day #2

Like most weeks in my Crohn's journey this far, this week was similarly filled with doctors visits, phone calls, unnecessary drama, and, scattered throughout, there have been a few highlights of the week to brighten the mood. After Friday's blog was finally posted (The Week In Between), Philip and I went to dinner together, and … Continue reading Remicade Infusion Day #2

The Week In Between

This week just happens to be my in-between week, with only one doctor's appointment scheduled and a few calls to the VA. There were no appointments for GI, no shots needed, no follow-ups for consultations, and no blood work that I had to take care of this week for my Crohn's disease and issues. This … Continue reading The Week In Between
