This is a great post on IBD. I also personally suffer from Crohn’s Disease and I was able to pull myself out of a flare up and achieve remission through my diet and exercise. A huge part of it was also treating my anxiety. Which brings me to the topic of her post…invisible illness. Everyone you know is truly fighting a battle you don’t know about, so let’s all work together on making each other better.
This week (Sept 28 – Oct 4, 2015) is Invisible Illness Awareness Week. There are so many conditions that are invisible. From lupus to back pain, depression to rheumatoid arthritis, cancer to migraines, diabetes to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
This got me to thinking about my illness, Crohn’s disease. Is my illness really that invisible?
Yes, many days, I made myself presentable and went to work like a normal person. People couldn’t see just how sick I really was or what was going on inside my bowels every time I ran to the toilet. Nobody could see inside my anxiety ridden head when I was suffering silently with a mind full of nerves, stressing over my symptoms. These things were mostly invisible.Or were they?
