Helping Myself and Others

So where have I been, what have I been up to, why have I not been blogging? Well I

have been very busy working on the planning committee for my Take Steps walk as well

as fund raising for my team, Grafton Gutsey.

This is the few months out of each year that I feel I am make a difference by helping

myself and others with IBD. Take Steps is The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America’s

major fund raiser for education, research and hopefully someday a cure for IBD. It is also

a great time to raise awareness, when I was diagnosed in 2008, I was so glad, it had a name,

I could be fixed, wrong. I had never heard of such a thing, Crohn’s disease, I would have

probably ran away from someone like me talking about it because of its nature, it’s has

some pretty gross aspects.

As I said I had never heard of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, however over the last 5-1/2 years

I have learned it is so much more than a pooping illness, it affects your entire body and can cause

major depression. Chronic diarrhea, crippling joint pain/arthritis, blood loss, exhaustion, hair

loss, depression, bone loss, malnutrition, death, I could go on for hours. So anyway that is what I have +

been up to, planning, fund raising, awareness and working for a cure because right now there is no cure.
