Je reviens de la piscine, c'était génial ! Mes fils ont été enlevé hier et je n'ai plus de pansements (la j'en ai un mais c'était juste pour protéger dans la piscine). Je peux enfin profiter pleinement de mes vacances, je me sens si heureuse : j'ai passé la 2eme opération, le plus gros est derrière moi. Le bonheur ce n'est pas d'avoir tout ce qu'on désire mais d apprécier ce que l'on a. 😏
My diet sucks. That is, what I’m able to eat with my digestive issues sucks. Gone are the days of veggie stir fries and snacking on almonds, enter the era of potatoes, porridge and … more potatoes. Of course, everyone with digestive issues is different – but for me, starch is my best friend.
I mention this because I’ve worked with many clients that have digestive issues and they are, like I used to be, rightfully frustrated. One day they’re feeling good, the next day their stomach feels like it’s about to give birth after eating a typical meal.
It took me a long time to figure out expectation feeds frustration. The expectation that I’ll find a magic pill and my illness will go away – poof!
But every day I realise the more I let go of any expectations to get better, the better I feel. Because I figure I’m not going to wait to ‘feel’ better before I get started with my life. Life is just too magical to waste isn’t it?
So if you’re frustrated, angry, annoyed or whatever at a health issue – I get it – tottttttttaly get it. But a gentle consideration is this: is waiting for that expectation to happen holding you back from doing something you know you’d love doing?

Part of chronic illness is its life long presence, yesterday i started having one of my pain episodes and it was bad, it completely halts my ability to do anything, which is so discouraging because it makes those of us with this indivisible illness feel unreliable and just sets in the reality of the situation. Without pain management i attempt to meditate through the pain, and burn myself with heating pads. Lol. It lasted two hours or so. At the end Im left weak and even scared to drink water because i dont want to induce pain...then at like 1030 last night, it started again and even worse....And lasted 5 hours Managing pain that intense for that long its very damaging to the brain, do you know how much mental power it takes to handle it and not run to the hospital (and last night was a hospital scare night, i was at the point where i just didnt want to be conscious, i consider the pain i deal with to be a form of human torture, no joke ).....my brain hurts, it takes all my mental power to the point where i literitally cannot speak move i just have to shut my eyes. thats an autoimmune disease. No warning no reason it just happens and reminds me that im not 100% better and i never will be, and it does make me very sad but that's why i enjoy my good days to the fullest becuase i wont feel good forever. Thats reality, im a realist. Im not invisible like i like to think ;) im human and face human error on the daily....but can i just say #ibd patients are some of the strongest humans i know, we deal with some seriously bullshit and still push through. #ulcerativecolitis#ibd#ibdawareness#chrons#jpouch#nocolonstillrollin
For years now I have suffered with IBS and IBD and any of you out there that have it will understand how bad it can make you feel along with some of the not so nice symptoms it can cause. I have tried a lot of remedies, diets and 'cures' in my time and was introduced to this recently from a fellow sufferer who couldn't speak of it highly enough and how much it helped her symptoms and general day to day feeling. So.... I am just about to start a 30 day detox with these green tea capsules. Each capsule is the equivalent of 6 cups of green tea! And having to swallow one tablet to get that is a lot easier for me than drinking the not so great tasting 'plant water'😂For those who don't know green tea.... 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃

"I have a confession...I HATE keeping a food diary. There is something about the mechanical process of having to remember to track everything that goes into my mouth that saps all the joy out of it...but I know that if I am to really tune in to my body and learn about what foods work best for me...then making note of what I'm eating to see what patterns emerge is a necessary evil. And what I do LOVE is sexy stationary! So when I saw this lovely little food diary from @thefooddiaryco I couldn't resist. If anything is going to make me keep up with a.l food diary then this is it." •

Happy Hump Day friends!!! Okay so I hadn't eaten any dairy or meat in 9 days but yesterday was Taco Tuesday so I had some organic turkey meat/ground beef 😷😷 NEVER AGAIN... I woke up sooo bloated today. Remember: you are not your struggles xoxox stay strong #ibd#ibdawareness#colectomy#bloated
Being intolerant to so many things has been incredibly difficult to manage while travelling through the French & Spanish countryside. I'm putting together a bit of a guide, with info & helpful tips which will tell you all about how I managed to find food which worked for me. This man had the most delicious olives I've ever tasted, and gave me a whole jar for my Camino journey...safe to say I ran out on day 3.
Thank you to @aveda for the miracle products ❤️For the last 4 months my hair has been falling out at an alarming rate thanks to all the strong meds, stress & anaemia.... After lots of googling this seems to be the only thing that saves my poor little scalp 💕
