My IBD Life

Time to push yourself:

Sometimes these diseases can set you back in life, with healthy eating , fitness and just health in general. That being said after a flare it can be hard to snap back into “reality” meaning its hard to get back into healthy living.

Before my latest set back I was doing fairly well , I was eating healthy enough  , exercising , sleeping better , all those good things, then out of no where a flare hit ,not even a “big long” flare but it was about a month or so of tougher symptoms the kind where eating healthy and  exercising are out of the question which in turn leads to less sleep and more anxiety.
But that is over with, yet I still have a hard time realizing its okay to go back to those healthier foods and i’m not going to have unbearable pain after exercising, its hard to comprehend that if i go for a jog or do more intense yoga i wont have to worry so much about…pooing my damn self!
There are times during your sickness where you will feel there is no going back,you feel like this is it. I am going to feel like this forever. I will never be able to run, play sports, dance..etc again but Most of you will have times where you do get better, for a short or maybe a long amount of time, Its time like this , the short times of better health where we need to push ourselves to do more to get active, to get healthy! so thereafter are bodies may have better resources to stay stronger during the sickness, Its time to stop being scared of sickness and start embracing health, its time to stop living for your illness and start living for your health.
Todayis the day in My IBD Life where I pledge to embracing health, I will not say try , Try is a set up word for  fail , I say I will do, I will push myself to get better I will push myself to become active once again!
I would like to know I’m not alone here, who will take this pledge with me!?!?

  1. I’m with you… It’s been almost 2 years since the worst flare and I’ve been in recovery for 1.5 years … It’s time to move on from a recovery mindset to a proactively healthy mindset. We can do it!! 🙂


  2. Is there a banner like that one but for UC?
