I recently read an article by Sylvia Keays who I was introduced to by a mutual friend, on her journey with living with Crohn's Disease. To be honest, it sort of stopped me in my tracks, because I too, was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease about 18 years ago, and apart from a few hospital stays, I have been really good. I coast along, and it I get the odd flare up I just keep going.
Sylvia did the same and guess what? It all came crashing down.
When I have had flare ups I have pulled myself back into line very quickly with my diet and mindset. So I know it can be done. However, after reading Sylvia's post I'm going to start to smell the roses more often and not take things for granted.
