An update on my Chronic Life (including sky diving!) and health since my last post.
Cimzia! is a short film depicting life with Colitis and treatment with the biologic medication Cimzia. The video stars Schweenie Eleanor Roosevelt and Kitty Detroit, who help me cope with my chronic conditions and pain.
Great holiday fun and travels resulted in a typical chronic illness crash. I breathe my way through it, train a puppy, try to read, and discover inspiration on Pinterest despite my epileptic and colitis challenges. My decision for Lasik surgery in spite of my autoimmune diseases is also discussed.
Christmas and New Year’s Eve fun despite chronic illness and its unpredictable nature.
Christmas celebrations and December travels despite inflammatory bowel disease and chronic illness flares. Sky lanterns, puppies, and bookstores, oh my!
