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.

10 reasons to join the Crohn’s and Colitis Support Group

1. It’s full of other people with connections to IBD.
2. It’s a safe forum to ask any and all IBD questions.
3. It’s a way to connect with others on the Mighty community.

Update; Shower Nightmare & Shower Stool

Hello Mightys, first I want to thank everyone for the suggestions and support I got on my post!

Secondly for some reason my previous attempt at a post didn’t go through so now I have to retype everything.

The past few showers and days have all been the same exhausting and irritating experience;

Nausea, Dizziness, Faintness, Shaking, Tremors, Winded, Fast Heartbeat, and Exhaustion.

I have to repeatedly sit down every minute while attempting to shower which is very unpleasant as there is nowhere to sit and I end up sitting on the shower floor and it’s very uncomfortable.

Those who suggested a shower stool, I am looking into it and can see how helpful it would be; it would make me not dread showering and make the task overall easier for my chronically ill body.

I did finally reach out to a doctor and got back from them, I will see them soon.

I didn’t mention or suggest PoTS though I know it was mentioned previously, I’m just too shy to be that direct, but I will be seen and likely go through a test that should make it see if anything indicates that.

I will keep all you informed and share how things go. 🦋
