I don’t know what’s going on with me and my body. By body I mean my abdomen and the Crohn’s disease that plagues it.
I’ve been in horrible pain for most of the last week. I take medication for the Crohn’s and I take pain meds. Neither seems to be helping much at all.
I have pain all the time, but when it’s really bad it seems to localize itself to my lower right side. The symptoms and pain levels are comparable to someone suffering from appendicitis. If you’ve ever had appendicitis you now know what I’m going through – all the time.
It’s really hard to stay upbeat when you feel this bad.
I don’t know how I’ve managed it, but I’ve been fairly positive in the more than 2.5 years that this Crohn’s flare has been going on. I really try hard to not let it get to me and I keep my mind occupied with other things like my hobbies – gardening, photography, reading, blogging and so on … but if this horrid pain keeps up I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to stay positive.
I need a break from the pain.
