Might still have a kidney infection but today was a pretty great day! ☺️ I realised how long my hair has gotten, pretty fab considering 4 years ago the chemo drugs I was on to try and get my Crohn’s into remission made it all fall out and I wore wigs constantly 🙈 I also got news that Bella’s Stims test results came back and she’s doing AMAZINGLY! 💖 her cortisol levels have come right down to almost normal and her really small dose of meds is sorting her right out 😁 I also had my second last piece of coursework completed and now I’m only 750 words away from completing this semester and I’m free for exams, Christmas, new year and Krakow! 😍I’m also so buzzing for Black Friday sales cos I have a clothing addiction that is so getting its fix 😂 my makeup was pretty good today too, I still love the @nyxcosmetics control drop foundation and @katvondbeauty liquid lipstick I’m wearing! Plus I’ve discovered the best silver shampoo from @bleachlondon, it is the best shampoo for blonde hair ever 😍 my clothes today consisted of @newlookfashion Emilee jeggings, a @boohoo ribbed burgundy thick jumper and my @abercrombie scarf ☺️ I always come back to these jeggings because they’re really supporting but don’t make my bag leak or put too much pressure on it but I just wish they were a teeny bit higher waisted so they wouldn’t fall down when I sit 😂 #blogger#entrepreneur#fashion#health#life#ibd#crohns#ileostomy#proctectomy#invisibleillness#chronicillness#glasgow#student#ootd#recovery#spoonie#lifestyleblog#healthblog#bodypositive#instagood#photooftheday#lifestyle#ootd#makeup#motd#pale#cushingsdisease#chronicpain#blonde
I was getting ready to get all comfy (aka wash make up off, throw hair up, and put sweats on) so I could bake some more...and I realized I never share my newest favorite thing!
I have been looking for a new face washing system...that is in a good price range. One that is for sensitive skin, gluten free, and that wouldn’t break the bank to buy for me and Gracey, plus the other two in the next couple of years!
And I found out that @elfcosmetics is gluten free!!! This face wash, moisturizer and eye cream was only $18!!! And I absolutely love it!!! I have been switching all my make up to them too, and haven’t been disappointed yet!
Oh and it totally gives me another reason to go to Target 🙌🏻🤪😂 Have y’all tried Elf brand?
CLC MEMBER FEATURE: Hi ☺️ I'm Sam. I’m 26 years old and I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2015. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the immune system starts attacking the body, damaging nerves.
Flash back a couple years just before my diagnosis and my world had slowly started falling apart. I was losing the ability to walk; I could barely grip anything and I just felt like my body was betraying me. I was scared, embarrassed, and confused because I didn't know what was wrong with me. This led me to ignore the situation and struggle through for months until I was eventually hospitalised.
It's now been 2 years, a couple more relapses, a new medication and I am finally starting to accept it. I have an amazing support system of friends and family and a wonderful boyfriend who has helped me every step of the way!
It may have been the toughest 2 years of my life but I've also moved into a new home and had a job promotion along the way, so not all bad ☺️ To anyone out there that feels they are going through hell - keep going 💕 You will make it through and things will get better. I love meeting new people on here so feel free to say hi! #chronicloveclub

So these photo's are going to look weird ( lots of photos of my face 😂) but I also think they are quite interesting. They are a chronological documentation of my year so far and it wasn't until I was scrolling through my feed that I realised how much my face and my expressions truly show.
The first lot is from the first 2 months where are started of ( what I thought) healthy and quite happy. As you all know though my face and body drastically changed as I became very ill, which caused a huge shift in my life.
The 2nd lot show my period throughout my time in hospital and how I went from being weak, gaunt and malnourished to probably the healthiest and happiest I have been all year!
The 3rd lot shows my darkest point of my year. I was struggling with my confidence and health and I was undeniably miserable. I smiled but looking back they were obviously fake and forced, with very little life in my eyes. I'm only just noticing as well that I avoided eye contact with the camera, I look like a robot.
Finally the 4th lot have been the most recent and I think there is currently a balance of my entire year. I'm still struggling with my confidence but I am gradually finding my happiness again and I hope that I can one day soon post a photo where I am truly healthy and happy.
I post on my Instagram to help raise awareness for what it's like to be someone with an illness and an ostomate aswell as give an honest representation of what's it's like to be a young person just generally trying to live life BUT it's also a good reminder to myself of what I have overcome and what I am fighting to get back to. Social media can be a cruel and harsh tool but when used in a positive way it can be a wonderful thing. Although I have felt sad looking back at some of the photos, i am grateful as I have learnt that I am stronger now than I was and that I can overcome anything in time.

Um dos primeiros desodorantes mais naturais que testei foi este da @livealoe! A marca é vegana, orgânica e certificada pelo #IBD . Minha primeira impressão do produto foi que o aroma era muito forte, mas quando percebi que o cheiro não fica tão forte na roupa quanto eu pensava que ficaria, fiquei mais tranquila. Eu gosto muito do cheirinho herbal e sinto que é um desodorante líquido bem refrescante. Um alerta aqui é para o álcool que ele contém, pois se você estiver com algum machucadinho, vai arder. Ele seca bem rápido e dura algumas boas horas, mas dependendo do calor do dia (moro numa cidade muuuuuito quente), é preciso retocar. Na sua composição tem #aloevera (cicatrizante, regeneradora e antioxidante), #copaíba (anti-inflamatório), #neem (antifúngico e antibacteriano) e #sálvia (antifúngica e adstringente), além de óleos essenciais de #melaleuca , #alecrim , #citronela e #menta ! Você já testou? 😉Adquiri o meu na loja @breviariumorganicos!
I had my 2nd dose of Stelara on Monday, I did the needle myself and it went well. I also talked to my doctor via telemedicine and I guess my blood-work shows an improvement even though none of my symptoms have changed which is good I guess. My doctor says that my symptoms are most likely related to my diet, as of right now I am basically vegan other than egg whites which I eat every day for more protein. This helped me personally a lot, dairy is most definitely not a good thing for me and easier to digest things usually go better like carbs, but the dietitian thinks that I am eating too many carbs and too little calories. #crohns#crohnsdisease#chronicillness#chronicpain#telemedicine#ibd#stelara
Battling the feeling of defeat
Recovery is hard. It is a full time job! As I approach 2 months post-op this week, I am amazed at how my incisions have healed, my body has began to adjust, and my energy levels are coming back little by little. But in between those small successes I have been given harsh reminders that I am still recovering and although my mind may think I can do more, my body simply cannot right now. Last week I woke up the morning of my physical therapy session completely exhausted. I could tell that my body was worn down and needed rest so reluctantly, I cancelled my appointment. I immediately felt a sense of defeat. Should I have forced myself to go? When I try to stand up from the floor and feel my legs shaking underneath me, too weak to lift me on their own, I feel that same sense of defeat. When a task that is typically thought-less for healthy people exhausts me, I feel that sense of defeat. When my mind says, “let’s go for a run!” but my legs simply do not have the ability to run right now, I feel that sense of defeat.
But here’s the thing about defeat: it is only temporary. You pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep going because defeat is not permanent, but giving up is. There are going to be times when you feel defeated, frustrated, sad- that is inevitable. But those feelings do not define you or your progress. So today I put on my tennis shoes, grabbed my resistance bands for my physical therapy exercises, and kept going because I’ve come too far and fought too hard to give up now.

Just your typical somewhat neglected bathroom. The air smells like urine and bleach.
Feng shui: 3/10
Everything is just gray and unhappy. There are also only two stalls on here. I'm hoping this isn't the only bathroom they have here, because there are thousands of people at this park. The toilet dispenser is on the same level as my knee, and the stall is too narrow, so I'm sitting at a weird angle.
Likelihood of being murdered: 1/10
The only thing murdering me is that Popeye's chicken I had for lunch yesterday. #crohns#crohnsdisease#ibd#ibdlife#colitis#crohnsprobs#crohnsproblems#poop#toilet#ibdorknownasinflammatoryboweldisease
104 weeks (2yrs) ago I woke up from my first #ileocecalresection The surgery took place on a Tuesday but I was in so much pain and so nauseated that I was maxed out on meds and in and out of consciousness the rest of the day. I went in to surgery so sick. I'd lost 20lbs on a liquid diet and was 130 ish pounds of nothing. As they rolled me down the hall to the operating room I started to cry. I thought those white walls were the last thing I would ever see, I didn't think I was going to live through that surgery. My scrub nurse had to look away and pretend to go wash his hands again. I've been one of the lucky ones who has stayed in remission since that surgery. 2 years later I am now 143 pounds of healthy with lots of muscle! It's been a long road but it's getting better every day. #crohnsdisease#surgery#ibd#remission#storiessavelives
