Have you practiced more or less self-care since you received your IBD diagnosis?

Curious to hear how your #UlcerativeColitis or #CrohnsDisease has affected how often you engage in self-care activities.

May 17th, 2024 Review + Thoughts

Managed to stay awake today!

I got import things done instead of procrastinating and I independently advocated for myself regarding my health and challenges which is huge for me due to my social anxiety!

So that is definitely my win for today.

Though I was very unfocused and couldn’t concentrate on anything due to rapid thoughts and a short attention span due to my ADHD.

It’s so hard to just focus and anxiety just amplifies everything including my symptoms.

I wish I could find a way to focus better and not have my mind a million different places at once.

My left knee pain was annoying because it hurts just to stand and it still hurts when I am sitting.

My Crohn’s is in remission but I’m getting signals I need to stay away from some food and drinks for a while,

Likely my infusions are coming up and that’s the cause.

Overall today was better in some ways and worse than others but I think today was a good day.
