Well finally spending a good chunk of my day on the loo is having a benefit somewhere! Not sure about the open day though...food and activities in a sewage plant?! #crohns #crohnie #ibd

Made it work on the train this morning just about accident free. Return journey is a bit of a magical mystery tour because my train (and many following it) were cancelled so hopped on a bus to take me to a tube...thank you, Citymapper app for pointing me in the right direction! #crohns #crohnie #crohnslife #ibd #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #publictransport #toilet
Public transport...I'm taking the train to work today because there's no parking available. Toilet stops are, as always, on my mind. There's a leg of the journey that involves walking and no toilets for around 20 mins so always leaves me a little nervous...#crohns #crohnslife #crohnssucks #crohnsfighter #ibd #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #publictransport
It's #humira day! If today is your Humira day as well, tell me about your Humira experiences and routines! .

Never really thought about toilet seat sanitiser - what do you think? #crohns #toilet #sanitiser #ibd #crohnie #crohnslife #crohnsfighter #crohnsdisease
When you get excited because you not only get your #humira delivery but a new sharps bin as well! 😆

I've had a whoooole lot of support from the pic I posted with my triple cold sore a few days ago. Thank you! #abreva seems to be a miracle cream as this is what my plagued lip looks like this evening - much better! (P.S. do I have resting bitchface or what?!)

Newspapers (well, certain ones anyway) tend to blow things out of proportion but nonetheless, look after yourself, friends! Oh and not sure why the rest of Ireland appears to be immune to this...🤣

I've had cold sores before but tonight I had 3 pop up in a row. WTF?! I put some #abreva on the first sign of bump but wasn't expecting more to appear!  Oh and that brown bit is a shadow... #coldsore #crohns #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #ibd
One thing I've realised that is so important is looking after yourself & taking time for yourself (but I'm not very good at it unless you count the odd face mask!). This year I want to try out loads of different ways or things to do this and will hopefully be posting about what I get up to so if you have any ideas or tips, let me me know!

Has anyone else had issues with #humira prescriptions via the NHS/#healthcareathome ? I had my bi-weekly dosage approved for another year back in May and then recently a 3 month course of weekly injections. Finished the bi-weekly course and am now down to my last injection, due on Friday but didn't have a call to arrange another delivery. Caller Healthcare at Home up and spoke to a rather abrupt lady who said they were waiting for a prescription. Emailed my IBD nurse who said that it had been sent. I don understand how it all works! If I have funding for a year then that should be sorted, right? #crohns #crohnslife #crohnie #crohnssucks #invisibleillness #crohnsfighter #autoimmunedisease

Anyone else start to feel a little anxious when their loo roll stash gets down the the last one...? I've stated buying mega packs of the stuff so I'm never in that situation! #crohns #crohnie #crohnsdisease #crohnslife #crohnssucks #crohnsfighter #ibd #colitis #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #inflammatoryboweldisease #toiletpaper #toiletroll #loo
From my belly to yours - a very merry Christmas and hopefully a good 2018 for you!

False alarm! Walking back from the shop just now I was like "I need to go!!!!", got home, ran upstairs to the loo. Nothing. I did have one of my favourite toilet companions with me though because pooping alone in this house just doesn't happen. I HATE false alarms because 99% of the time I do need to go and have between 3-5 mins to actually find somewhere to go. #crohns #crohnslife #crohnsfighter #crohnsdisease #ibd #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness

Quick pit stop while Christmas shopping...came very close to not making it on time 😒 #crohns #crohnie #crohnslife #crohnssucks #ibd #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease
Takeaway & fast fast food doesn't alway agree with #crohns but for somehow I can tolerate good old chippy chips without too many repercussions the next day. Do you have any "safe" takeaway foods?

Leave house to go to the supermarket, feel the guts go, take a pit stop at the local pub. Live musician playing makes the loo stop better although "Wish You Were Here" is probably not the most appropriate song...#crohns #crohnie #crohnssucks #ibd #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #crohnsfighter
Me and #Crohns are sitting here until it's good to get back to the hotel room...
