Wonderful way to celebrate the good news I received from my Crohn's specialist. I am very proud of what I have accomplished and having a wonderful Crohn's specialist guiding me and my care team has made a difference. She was so caring and compassionate. I was choked when I walked out of her office, she hugged me and said she was proud of me for being such a hard working young lady and not giving up on myself. I left with happy tears... I haven't cried happy tears since I met Bono lol. @theclevercupcakes #crohnswontstopme #crohnswarrior #ibdwarrior #crohnie #crohnsfighter #ibd #inflammatoryboweldisease #colitis #autoimmunedisease #crohnietreats #crohnstreats #proud #proudofmyself #proudcrohnie #spoonie #crohnielife #crohnslife #spoonielife #colitisandcrohns #instacrohns #invisibleillness #invisibleillnesswarrior #chronicallyill #chronicinvisibleillness #criedhappytears #crohnscolitis #fighter #warrior #nevergiveup #theclevercupcakes
Just thought I’d give the #10yearchallenge a shot and I can’t believe 10 years has flown by already! I’m beginning to think I have a Wolverine/Logan thing going on and I don’t age much 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️ In 2009, I was 2 years going in living with an ileostomy and enjoying the things I thought I would never be able to enjoy again, although, throughout these years, I did struggle with my own personal demons such as the acceptance of my body image and the struggles with my weight gain and development of other possible health problems from my drinking and binge eating caused by depression. I’m proud to say that I did overcome those obstacles and I will continue to fight on in this coming decade! We all have silent battles we fight everyday and the best we can do is to press forward and live our lives the best we know how to! 💜💜 . #timeflies #decade #ageless #oldyoungman #itsnottheageitsthemileage #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohns #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness #nocolonstillrollin
Jumping on the #10yearchallenge bandwagon 😂 it’s a big one for me 20 years old and 30 years old! I still don’t smile in photos!
Thanks to Crohn’s this started in the 20s too 😂 #crohniscray #crohns #colitis
New on the blog today! I had my first appointment with my consultant gastroenterologist last week to discuss my Crohn’s disease and treatment, if your interested in reading how it went give it a read 👍💜 Link in the bio!
You don’t need to have a bag to wear a baggy tee, oooh no!☝🏻This is one of our lovely baggy pals showing solidarity and pride! @transcendingwithdlc 🖤

Ostomy Orders ❤️ ________________________ Just wanted to share how wonderfully efficient my Ostomy Association is I emailed my order off late last Thursday & it arrived this morning! They use @auspost who send email notifications which update me on the ETA of my package 📦 • I was out this morning when my supplies arrived and found them at my front door when I got home Ostomy NSW is mostly made up of volunteers & I appreciate their hard work and efforts to provide such a reliable service So thanks to them! 👏 #ostomy #stoma #nocolonstillrollin #crohnscolitis #ibd #ostomynsw #stomasupplies #thankful
This is me👋🏻... at my best💯! But things were not always this way, and sadly won’t always be this way. . Due to the completely unpredictable nature of IBD I’ve come to bask in the periods of remission that I’ve had. . After having had IBD for more than half my life I know the importance of appreciating my health, something that is so easy to take for granted. . Hoping to ride out this remission wave for as long as I can! 🤙🏻 . #invisibledisease #invisibleillness #ibdawareness #gutsygirl #ulcerativecolitis #crohnsdisease #ibd #crohnscolitis
So since I've pretty much tried every other biologics medication out there, my next step is to see if I have better luck with Entyvio.

For my 100th Instagram post I wanted to post something special. I’ve been married to my wife for 3 years and during that time I have had 2 chronic illness diagnoses, 2 surgeries, a weeks stay in hospital and endless months of being really unwell and pretty useless as a wife. She has been an absolutely saint and really taken the in sickness and in health vow to a whole new level, feeding me, running me around to appointments, putting me to bed, running me baths and comforting me when I’m in pain or upset plus so much more. I’m forever grateful to have such an amazing, caring person as my soul mate and life partner. She deserves so much more in return than this Instagram post and now I’m looking forward to many more years together spoiling her rotten for all of her love and support ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Finally, my infusion day has arrivedddd. Gimme dat #crohnsiscray #crohns #colitis
Had my abdominal ultrasound today since my liver profiles had been raised the past few blood tests. That jelly gets everywhere😂 but it was cool to look at all my organs in the screen and pretend I knew what I was looking at.. the doctor left her notes on the screen when she left (tut tut) and she said the only thing she could see was unexplained abdominal gas hahaha 😂 probably the three cans of coke I drink a day. #crohnscolitis #crohnswarrior #crohnsfighter #crohnslife #crohnsandcolitisuk #ostomyblogger #ostomybag #ostomywarrior #ostomyawareness #ostomylife #ostomyinspo #ultrasound #abdomen #invisibleillness #instacrohns #invisibleillnessawareness #ileostomy #abdopain #manchester #liver #kidney #spleen #cocacola #gas #stoma
Just chillin’ with my chihuahua, the Monk-ster on this lazy Sunday. I know I’ve been a bit MIA, but I’m recovering from a very stressful two weeks of work. Trying to make the most of my 3 nights off in a row. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and a blessed Sunday 💜💜 . #chihuahua #chihuahualover #chihuahuasofinstagram #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohns #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness #nocolonstillrollin
IMHO...best bbq anywhere! Old 300 @old300bbqtx . #grassfed Akaushi brisket and ribs for me and the “Jim Raby” quesadilla for Jeff (he hasn’t gone full carnivore) 😋 . Fun fact...the Old 300 pitmaster was personally selected to prepare BBQ in Washingon DC during President Obama’s first inauguration and he’s met and cooked for Tom Hanks, Garth Brooks, and Beyoncé...But his favorite customers are “regular Joes” right where he grew up in Blanco, TX 🙃 . If you’re driving through, I highly recommend you stop! . We ate a big meal last night and I don’t usually eat lunch, so I’ll fast for about 30 hours after this until dinner tomorrow...with the exception of my morning coffee ;-) . . . . #carnivore #ketovore #carnivoreketo #carnivorediet #ketocarnivore #meatheals #keto #foodismedicine #carnivorediet #crohnsfitnessfood #crohns #ibdawareness #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohnswarrior #IBD #chronicillness #crohnsawareness #crohnsandcolitis #ibdwarrior #crohnscarnivore #crohnie #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #inflammation #myIBD
Today’s practice was the perfect way to stretch out after my first 10km run since my treatment started . Can’t explain how motivated I feel to know I can still run the distance . Yoga has really kept my strong & fit through out this difficult time . Now off to @hotyogasheffield for 2 classes with @hot_yogaglow #perfectsunday #yogaforlife #yogaeveryday #runningwoman this is what a woman with Crohn’s can do “everything “ 🧘‍♀️🙏🏃‍♀️💪 #crohnscolitis
New on the blog! Sometimes there’s more bad days than good especially when the endo and Crohn’s are playing up for me. This is what I do to make those days and any other bad days that little bit better 💜🎗 Link in the bio!

Food, friends, and wine 😁 Another great meal for a carnivore. . As much as I would love to be able to enjoy a big, fresh salad...my digestive system simply won’t allow it. But the true silver lining for me is that meat and wine don’t bother me. . Here’s to looking at the bright side of life—enjoying what we can have and not focusing on what we can’t—and living with gratitude...cheers! . . . . #carnivore #ketovore #carnivoreketo #carnivorediet #ketocarnivore #meatheals #keto #foodismedicine #grassfed #carnivorediet #crohnsfitnessfood #crohns #ibdawareness #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohnswarrior #IBD #chronicillness #crohnsawareness #crohnsandcolitis #ibdwarrior #crohnscarnivore #crohnie #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #inflammation #myIBD #gratitude
Done! 👊 Nice little workout to get me moving this Saturday morning...I may have slept in a little 😉 . Jeff is in the process of setting up our spare bedroom as more of a home gym for me...we've got an Amish murphy bed on order, new plantation shutters installed, and this white board hung yesterday. What can I say, he definitely spoils me! . One of the things I love about working out at home is that on the days that Crohn's suddenly leaves me feeling not so great (especially when I’m in that gray area where I don't necessarily feel bad, but I also don't feel good), I can easily do as much or as little as I want and not be more than a few feet from the restroom. I also don't have to make myself look presentable...the last thing I want to do when I don't feel good, lol! . I'm feeling good today, though, and after a couple of hard workouts the last two days, I needed some good stretching and just a few full-body movements to activate the muscles! . . . . #homegym #workout #circuit #workoutcircuit #20minworkout #bodyweight #barefoot #homeworkout #fitness #strength #muscle #yoga #crohnsfitnessfood #crohns #ibdawareness #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohnswarrior #IBD #chronicillness #crohnsawareness #crohnsfighter #ibdwarrior #crohnie #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #myIBD
Seen a few people do this so I thought I'd join in and show you how quick it is to do. Takes me about 2 mins to change! Despite not wanting to go through measuring and cutting my bags to fit for a while as my new stoma will shrink down post op, I am looking forward to having a spout again. Atm I have to change my bag every day because my stoma is completely retracted and output starts to spread underneath and make my skin itch. My skin is a bit red but it's not painful and there's no sores. I've always been lucky enough to have no skin issues, hopefully this will continue post op!! #crohnscolitis #crohnswarrior #crohnsfighter #crohnslife #crohnsandcolitisuk #ostomyblogger #ostomybag #ostomywarrior #ostomyawareness #ostomylife #ostomyinspo #bagchange #ileostomy #stoma #ibdsuperheroes #ibdandme #invisibleillness #instacrohns #invisibleillnessawareness #chronicillness #ibdawareness #ibdwarrior #ostomy #superspeedy
Will she ever stop talking about the moon face? Probably not until it goes away... sorry not sorry! but I’m actually feeling ok about it today which is good, slightly changing up my hair / adding some huge earrings has definitely helped! Roll on getting off prednisolone 🤞😊🎗

Happy Saturday everyone!! I’m off to work today but feeling like a girl boss as a plan I have been working on for months has finally started and I’m seeing good results already. It really helps in life when you have a job you love 💕 feeling positive and motivated for the year ahead and we’re only 12 days in...
New on the blog today - Body confidence issues. It’s a side of chronic illness that we feel like we need to accept because the issues come from treatments that are supposed to make us well or symptoms that aren’t always addressed by our specialists.. a little bit more of a negative one today but wanted to share my honest insecurities. Thanks as well to everyone who has been reading my blog!

At first I was torn at how much time living #chronicallyill made me "lose" but on the contrary; Claire Wineland pointed out "originally wine was seen as a curse but then we saw it was a gift," the lessons and experiences I and many people with illnesses get, teach us the beauty of life in unexplainable ways.

After 7 months of relying heavily on opioid painkillers everyday I have been completely off any for 5 days!! So far it’s been pretty uneventful but today I have woken up and feel like a crusty toe... is it withdrawal? Is it Crohn’s? Is it endometriosis? I don’t think il ever know but I am super happy to not be relying on opioid drugs to get through the day at least 💜🎗
📷:pepetography "How do you stay so positive having an illness?" Tbh I've had some horrible episodes of depression, illnesses and life itself aren't easy but for me music is key.

So, it’s come to this. Just over three years after my initial diagnosis, I’m possibly facing surgery. I’ve been fortunate to have a doctor who has tried all medicines available in combination with homeopathic resolutions, but nothing has been a long term deal. I’ve never been in full remission. The only that that seems to work is prednisone and I can’t stay on the doses I’ve been on long term. So I have a colonoscopy on Thursday, and that will be the determination on whether or not my colon is still salvageable. Prayers that I get some relief, no matter the Avenue. At this point, I’m just sick of being miserable. #ibdwarrior #ibd #crohnscolitis #jpouch

I didnt value my health until it was gone... . . To be honest I dont really know if I knew what health really was.. . . I was 17 and in high school. I started going to the bathroom alot more, then I started seeing blood in the toilet, pain started getting really bad. I thought I has a bad cold or something . . I had never met anyone with a chronic illness before. I had no idea that you could be sick ... forever... . . I didn't understand it when my docotor said they had no idea why I happened, but I would have it forever. . . It wasnt untill my health was gone for good that I realised what health ever was. That I was able to even appreciate having my health . . I am blessed to have a version of my health back now but it will never be how it was. I will always have Crohns and have to be careful. But I vow to myself to always do everything FOR THE HEALTH, for my health. . . Here is a reminder to value what you have. To be thankful to your body for everything it's done for you and to do everything you can to keep it healthy. . . How long did it take you to get diagnosed? Did you know what a chronic illness was?
Good morning lovelies! Anyone who is in the UK knows it is currently bloody freezing!! I struggle really hard with putting on weight and in the summer it’s great because I’m usually a lot cooler than everyone else but in the winter I’m cold all of the time and then because of steroids I can literally make a cup of tea and be sweating! There is no in between frozen to my bones or sweating 😅 this photo has no relevance other than showing me with 50,000 layers of clothing ...... can we please skip Jan, Feb and March (if you decide to be crazy again and snow on us) and just move straight into Spring!
CLC MEMBER FEATURE: Hi, I’m Matt. I’m 27 and living in Boston, MA. I was diagnosed with Chronic Crohns/Indeterminate Colitis back in 2011 as a sophomore in college (a date I’ll never forget as I got a tattoo of it even!) • At first, I thought my symptoms were just a result of being a college student: drinking and partying too much. But it persisted, and I couldn’t ignore the signs and was diagnosed during the summer. Anyone who has IBD knows it’s a long path, sometimes never ending, to finding a medication that works. The issue with this is that I was supposed to leave in 6 months to study abroad in Florence, Italy. • I got right down to the wire before my trip and I was steadily getting worse. 6 weeks before I was set to fly out for the trip of a lifetime, I cancelled it out of concern for my health. It took a very long time until I got my symptoms under control, and once that fog was lifted I was crushed that I had an invisible illness take away what most will always think of their best memory from college. • I made a decision that year. No longer would I be letting Crohns keep me from the pursuit of life and adventure. Fast forward to the present day and I’m still living by the seat of my pants (get it? Us Crohnies make a lot of toilet jokes.) I’ve been to more countries in a flare, than not in one, and generally lead a lifestyle infused with adrenaline (skydiving, snowboarding, general danger) and spontaneity. Crohns wasn’t, and isn’t, the end of adventure for me. It just made me appreciate every new experience in life that much more because I know the effort it took my body to get there. I’ve also been told I’m a little stubborn. #chronicloveclub

New on the blog!! I’ve been pretty useless when it comes to social gatherings over the last 6 months, pretty much the queen of cancelling so I’ve put together my list of hobbies and activities that I enjoy when living with a chronic illness!

FINALLY getting my entyvio today thankfully 🙏. I am 1 week late because my insurance decided to drop me the first of the year. It took a day and a half but I got it all straightened out with the help of a lovely woman who took the time to listen and actually help me. Now im not feeling so great since im late with this infusion 😤. But im keeping my fingers crossed that this will get me feeling better 🤞. Its a rest day all around today so gonna go home and snuggle with my pup pup 🤗🐶.

In my last post, I talked about some of the surprising and beneficial things that happened to me when I started taking the Raw Hemp Oil by Endoca; both in regards to my Crohn’s management and health overall. . I also mentioned how steep of a learning curve I had when I began this journey into hemp/CBD oil. So, in this post, I want to share what I learned and provide you with a few more links to dive in a little deeper on your own (link in bio). . Happy reading!

All orders placed between Christmas and now are being printed and sent out tomorrow! Thank you again for everyone’s patience and support while I print your tees just for you! Can you spot yours...? 🤩
Back to the hospital today for the first time since I was admitted, feeling nervous as the steroids aren’t doing what they did initially so likely adding more medication... also having a 3/10 day fatigue wise and my pain is pretty high so overall a bit shit this morning!
And then there are nights where you crawl into bed at 9pm and try not to move too much or think too much or breathe too much because you just feel sick. Also, yes, that is my purple hippo Pillow Pet, no judging. #standupkeepfighting #dearcrohns

Been TRYING to get a fasted metabolic panel and other blood work done for the last few days, but the lab hasn’t received the orders and my doctors office hasn’t responded to my messages. So I’ve spent the last two days fasting for 16+ hours on top of being very anemic from my most recent flare. Not a productive mix. We’re hoping that the doc doesn’t deem #Xeljanz to be ineffective, but am also not looking forward to the bowel rest he mentioned in an email... we will see. Just got to keep keep on keeping on. #crohnscolitis #ibdwarrior
How do you break your fast? Lately, I've been breaking my short intermittent fasting window with a protein shake. Since my "9 to 5" day job has me working in an office environment, it can be difficult to eat at odd times of the day. . So, breaking my fast with a protein shake is not only quick and easy (and delicious), but also super portable. It's just what I need to pick me up in the late afternoon until I get home that evening for a big meal. . I have no affiliation with the protein company in this picture...other than the fact that I personally enjoy it and it seems to be one of two brands I've found that does not upset my digestive system. 😋 . What's your fasting experience, do you skip breakfast, skip lunch, or do extended fasts?

Throwback to when I was feeling younger, fabulous, chronic illness free and my rounded face was due to being a healthy weight rather than prednisolone steroids... 👩🏻
I saw @sunnyanderson had one of these in her bathroom in an earlier post and considered it one of the best crohns/colitis hacks I’ve ever seen - I always tell John he HAS to leave the bathroom light on because I can’t guarantee how easily I’ll find the bathroom and the toilet in the dark. This will definitely be a fun way to solve that problem. Plus - it’s freaking sweet! #crohnscolitis #prettygirlspoop #lightbowl #itsFREAKINGchangingcolors
🛑WARNING GRAPHIC PHOTOS🛑 - CROHNS DISEASE IN THE FLESH‼️ swipe to have a peek. Crohn's disease is classed as an invisible illness because to others, us who suffer with it may look fairly normal in some cases like me we may look a tad skinny. I wanted to make everyone aware that this disease isn't just a 'shitting' illness that it's life threatening. Here's some pictures of what us crohnies have to put up with. The first picture (number 1) is what a healthy bowel looks like so you can compare. Looking at a picture still makes it hard to compare so let me tell you what this foul bowel causes... chronic abdominal and back pain, diarrhoea, blood, mucus, fatigue, acid, malabsorption, abscesses, ulcers, fistulas, fissures, extreme weight loss, nausea, vomiting, mental health problems, bowel perforation and that's just a few thrown out there. Crohns can affect any where from your mouth all the way to your bum hole. Just because someone looks fine from the outside doesn't mean everything is ok....

Today was focused on Stelara Self-Injection #6 - (Ustekinumab) for my Crohn's Disease, IBD. During this shot, my first of the year, I discuss remission and symptoms with Crohn's disease. Through some research, I have found that remission, much like symptoms and Crohn's disease management, it is not linear. Rather, it is subject to each IBD individual. Healing with Crohn's disease is not straightforward, and to some remission does not mean 100% symptom-free. Through this shot, I also discuss my medication history, my previous eight weeks and current week of treatment, and, my symptoms with Crohn's disease.
