Crohn’s [Disease] Diaries PART 5: Part of My Bowel Gone

I was rummaging through some old writings. Came across these short diary-like entries from stints in/out of hospital 6 or 7 years back.

These began at a time when I was pretty vulnerable, with no proper diagnosis of the developing illness I had. Gradually, over the weeks, I became more and more aware of this “CROHN’S DISEASE” and started writing about its day-to-day struggles/speculating a lot about its causes.

To this day, Crohn’s has no known cure, but it is more common than people think.

Just no one ever talks about it.

[Each entry is how it was when I wrote it, except maybe for a few spelling/grammar edits. Don’t use them as a guide; they are merely the experiences of a patient coming to terms with an illness (written mostly on a variety of different meds.)]

(Part 4 HERE)

 

I don’t know which part, to be honest; I’m pretty much out of it. They cut me open and took away the bit that was inflamed (none of my shit could get through it).

 

Now I’m here, in yet another ward, nil by mouth, just healing and waiting.
