You ever get really congested with a cold and think of all the times you weren’t grateful that you could smell?
Because I sat in my car tonight and I cried. I cried because I am in a (temporary, think positive) point in my life where I look at a menu and think “what will hurt me the least?” Or go out for an evening and not have to immediately locate the bathroom or keep an arsenal of medications in my bag with Gatorade or electrolyte chews? 😫
Yeah, #CrohnsDisease sucks but with some sunless tanner and my stockpile of makeup, you can’t see the pain I feel in my joints or digestive system. And that’s my point. 😖
Social media and #Instagram in general is NOT REAL LIFE. It’s the moments that someone WANTS you to see with the #filters and #editing that make them the best versions of themselves or their experiences. Please don’t ever base your worth off of what you see or perceive from me, any influencer or model, any celebrity, your older sibling on vacation, any of it. You take hold of your own reality and appreciate it. Don’t wait for a cold (or a disease flare up) to make you do that. ❤️#crohnswarrior #crohnsawareness #crohnsandcolitis #reallife #lifeisntperfect #selfworth #selflove #lifeisbeautiful #movingbravely
