Exactly! We can’t let ourselves give up when we run into tough spots in our lives! In order for us to better ourselves we have to grow and keep pursuing what is important to us and not lose track of it. People let themselves get off track because they believe the quick and easy way is better but in the long run it can screw your life up big time. We all make mistakes whether knowingly or not but the question is can you fix them and continue to go back into the right path? Or just say “Fuck it! My life’s screwed anyways!” WRONG! It takes courage to give up what isn’t important to you and keep persevering! #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #positivity #positivequotes #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

Ok, well I can’t wait till Deadpool 2 comes out and the comic book fan in me wanted to post this art piece and give a S/O to a fellow Orange County native and comic book creator and artist @robliefeld Your comics and artwork were my faves when I was a teenager throughout the 90s and helped me to escape the pains I was going through with my Crohn’s disease! You’re awesome dude! And I thank you for the creation of Deadpool 👊🏼✊🏼👏🏼 #robliefeld #deadpool #cable #marvel #marvelcomics  #childhoodmemories #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

SWEET!! Finally found an SNES Classic! Now I can relive the console that helped me develop my anger issues as an adult....lol! All kidding aside, this system came out exactly around the time I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and it was an escape for me as I endured all that I was going through when I was 16 years old. I do have a lot of fond memories with this Console! #snes #snesclassic #videogames #childhoodmemories #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

This is definitely a pledge that we should all have posted somewhere! I think I’ll save this as a wallpaper! We all have our good and bad days but with little positive notes and quotes like these can help give us that little nudge to keep going forward and overcome the obstacles in our lives 👍🏼💪🏼💜 #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #positivity #positivequotes #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

One of the biggest treasures I feel in life are not only my family and friends but the people I interact with and help and give my time and energy to. Nothing makes me happier knowing that I was able to put smile on someone’s face! For those that know me, I will give my all to those that are in need and never expect anything in return because I know that friendship is what makes me rich spiritually 😊  #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

My little chihuahua Monkey likes to have his belly rubbed.

I know I’m going off on a little tangent today but for the last few days I’ve been really annoyed and angry at something that I had seen a few days ago and I came pretty close to losing my cool and doing something stupid. Sharing my story yesterday helped me a bit and after seeing this quote it kinda calmed me down to an extent. I’m still upset and don’t know how to approach this situation I’m in but it’s better than being extremely angry and saying things I may regret. #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

For this post and I’m not sure how many of you will actually read this but since I don’t have too many pictures to share of my past history of my journey, I think I’m gonna go a different route and share my story and do a little info and awareness for our chronic illness and show a serious side to me especially for my real life friends who are probably wondering about my rants.....lol. I was 16 years old when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I had never heard of the illness or was I even prepared for what I was getting into when it first hit me. When the symptoms started to manifest I blew it off as something that would go away. Unfortunately, it kept getting worse. My mother dragged to a doctor to figure out what was wrong only for him to tell her that I was on drugs probably doing cocaine. My mother flipped out and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, not only should you never piss off a Latina but don’t EVER piss off one who’s a single parent and worried about her kids health. She took me over to another hospital where I was better treated and diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. As the years passed, I noticed that I would have flare ups in the fall/winter but would have remission during the spring/summer semesters. They were rollercoaster flare ups by the time I was 21 I had finally been in remission for 4 years until I hit 25 and unexpectedly became hospitalized. That’s when I first learned of remicade which was a new treatment for me at that time and it did wonders for me! By the time I hit 29 I had a bad flare up that just permanently scarred my colon. I toughed it out for 2 more years until I just couldn’t handle the exhaustion and tendencies of wanting to pass out. By the time I was 31, the option of having my colon removed came up. The doctors notice I had polyps and the original plan was to have 3/4 of my colon removed then after I healed remove the polyps and then talk about reattachment. After about 6 months of having my ileostomy, I went to see the doctor about removing the polyps. It turns out that they were pseudo polyps and it was my illness trying to flare up only there wasn’t anything it could do. (This story will continue in the comments)👇🏼

Again I can’t reiterate this anymore! There are those out there that just don’t understand what we go through as we struggle with a chronic/invisible illness. This is the one “superpower” I wished ignorant people would have. Not only do we have an invisible illness but it’s incurable for a reason! Stop telling us bullshit that we know ain’t gonna work especially if the meds we’re already taking that’s suppose to treat the illness are fucking us up more as it is!! #deadpool #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohns #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #ostomates #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness  #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness
