New Doc!

First, I need to share with you a conversation I had with my 16 month old a few days ago. 
Yes, it was a conversation.

Me: Conor, please get off my lap- I need to poop. Gotta run to the bathroom.
Conor: Poop?
Me: Yes.
Conor: Bye!

And so begins the childs' understanding of living with a parent who has Crohn's. :)
___________________________________________________

Today was an excellent day. I feel incredibly optimistic. This morning I met with my new GI doc! (Sniff sniff...I will miss you Dr. R, but hope you are doing well across the country!) My husband came with me- he is an excellent sidekick to have in these situations- if we were superheroes we could be called... LooGirl and #2...HAHAHAHA. Anyways...

My new doctor is in Providence, RI- affiliated with a teaching hospital, professor at Brown, truly a standup guy and we bonded because he too has fraternal twin boys! I have been having some serious low moments when it comes to my disease. When you have tried over  a dozen different medications, have never been in remission (except when pregnant), and the last time you tried a new med you ended up with lupus, well, you start to get sad and think you will never not be going to the bathroom a gazillion times a day!

The appointment was positive, I learned a lot, I appreciated his style of patient care, and I feel like I have some options to work with. In addition, he was incredibly positive about my alternative forms of treatment, including acupuncture and my ever changing diet experiments.

Speaking of diet- have I shared this with you before?!
I owe this find to Pinterest: http://glutenfreefix.com/

Have tried about 5 recipes from this site so far...with 4/5 being delicious and  truthfully, one being so gross my husband spit out the dessert in his hand and gave it back to me. What? That's what happened!

I have said this before, living with Crohn's, is like living with an eating disorder. I want to eat. I want to eat everything. When I eat perfectly (for me), which is dairy free and lactose free, food stays in me longer, but then it starts to make me feel uncomfortable. I get so used to having an empty feeling in my gut that I start to panic when I feel full!

Here's to hoping I can get past that feeling and move forward with new attempts at disease control. Please note, when I say disease control, of course I mean my disease, but then in one hot second my brain jumps to bio-control, invasive insects and plant disease. Really brain? From one odd thought to another.

Have a lovely weekend! Eat Well.

  1. Hi,
    I LOVE your Blog!! I just started following it today. I have been diagnosed with Crohn's when I was in the 5th grade and now I am 30! I have been dealing with this Crohn's stuff for a LONG time!! Your blog has offered me inspiration and humility. :)
    However, I face new challenges ahead as I am preparing to get married and having babies of my own. But, my fiance and I have many questions for the doctors regarding pregnancy...do you have any advice? Thanks.

    Tia :)

Powerful Herbal treatment is 100% guarantee for HSV cure, the reason why most people are finding it difficult to cure HSV 1 an 2 is because they believe on medical report, drugs and medical treatments which is not helpful to cure HSV and hasn't proved any sign of helping.

I never believed it until I was helped and cured of my 16 months genital herpes with natural herbal medicines from Dr oduku.

  4. I have long felt a special connection with herbal medicine. First, it's natural, Charlie attended the same small college in Southern California - Claremont Men's College - although he dropped out of school to enroll in the Julliard School of Performing Arts in New York. York. Had he been to Claremont, he would have been senior the year I started there; I often thought that was the reason he was gone when he discovered that I had herpes. So, my life was lonely, all day, I could not stand the pain of the outbreak, and then Tasha introduced me to Dr. Itua who uses her herbal medicines to cure her two weeks of consumption. I place an order for him and he hands it to my post office, then I pick it up and use it for two weeks. All my wound is completely healed no more epidemic. I tell you honestly that this man is a great man, I trust him Herbal medicine so much that I share this to show my gratitude and also to let sick people know that there is hope with Dr. Itua.

  7. This is so amazing and so much reminds me of my Dad’s battle with Parkinson's disease and stroke. I think the biggest trauma was much on the family. You know, watching your agile father became so fragile and a shadow of himself. He became dependent on grand kids to move him around and feed too. It was really heartbreaking for everyone! But each time I remember the story, I become so thankful that we were opportune to learn about Dr. OVIE through the internet and used his herbal medicine which helped my Dad. Though I read a lot of negative things about herbs for Parkinson's disease and attendant effects of stroke treatment, I can tell you that the right herbal medicine is still out there! We found ours through Ovie. My Dad was 75 when he had an attack with Parkinson's disease which led to stroke. We used all recommended over-the-counter medicines for him for a period of 3 years, yet, there was no cure and to think those drugs had very bad side effects on him became our new challenge. When we switched to homeopathic treatment, he got a little better. Our breakthrough was through Dr. OVIE Herbal Medicine. That medicine was a miracle our family will never forget. In 2 months of use, his body was totally revived! His stroke vanished while Parkinson's disease was completely cured. Dad turned 87 august 01 th and is still very strong. Occasionally tending his garden with grandchildren. I will say, give Ovie a try, you never know your breakthrough from Parkinson's disease and stroke is very close to you an email away. ontact Dr Ovie via email> ovie.miraclemedicine1@gmail.com or contact Dr Ovie on yahoo email> ovie.miraclemedicine1@yahoo.com contact Dr.Ovie on his website now https://oviemiraclemedicin.wixsite.com/mysite Call or WhatsApp Dr on +2349056393169 aaDr Ovie is also specialize in curing the following below,*PARKINSON DISEASE

  8. I was able to overcome senile dementia via a complete naturopathic process.

    About two years ago, when I was 56, I started feeling foggy and had occasional memory lapses. My wife, Mary, started to notice it, too, but I also have hearing issues so she thought that was the problem. My memory worsened very gradually over the years, and we lived with it, compensating as needed. I became less social. After some months thereafter, it got to the point where we couldn’t keep making excuses or ignoring it. I had gone from doing our grocery shopping without a list to going with a list, to having the list but not buying what was on it.

    Mary went online to do some research, and it was during this process we had been fortunate enough to come across Dr. Utu Herbal Cure: an African herbalist and witch doctor whose professional works had majored on the eradication of certain viral conditions, especially dementia, ( improving the memory capacity positively), via a traditional, naturopathic process and distinguished diet plan. It was by the administration of this herbal specialist that I had been able to improve my condition for better. So to say, the encounter with the above-mentioned herbal practitioner was the first time we ever heard there was something that possibly can be done to improve my memory functionality.

    By the existence of such an encounter, I was able to learn of the new approach by which this herbalist successfully treated dementia conditions, which included a distinguished herbal therapy and lifestyle changes of which I had undergone to a tremendous, positive effect.
    It was after the completion of the herbal therapy I had started to experience a great deal of cognitive improvement when it came to rational decision making.

    In brief, I was able to go through the dreadful hollows of senile dementia without any further hazardous damage to my health condition, and within a short period. Had it not been for the support of my wife, of whom had encouraged me to undergo the above-mentioned therapy and that of the herbal practitioner of whom now happens to be benefactor - I would have been long exposed to the further perils of this condition and of which had been apt to result to a calamitous end.

    I would also wish for the same positiveness upon patients who may happen to be suffering from this debilitating disease, and would warmly beseech them to find a confidant like this herbal specialist with whose professional services I was able to attain a divine recovery.

    For further information concerning this African traditional cure for Alzheimer's disease; feel free to contact Dr. Utu directly via email: drutuherbalcure@gmail.com
