  • The two main health conditions I live with are Crohn's disease and a rare disease called, Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction. To read my story with each scroll down to the next section below.
  • Sometimes you just need someone to relate to. Visit the Spilling My Guts section where you'll find stories of the hardest challenges I've faced with my illnesses & heavier topics if you're looking for someone who has walked a similar path.
  • Need some hope and inspiration or perhaps a laugh? Scroll down to find the Positivi-Tea Room. All of my uplifting posts are right there for you and that's it! Nothing deep, scary, or heavy in this section.
  • Want to expand your digestive disease knowledge? Scroll down to the Elevate Your Mind section. You can begin with the basics and once you feel ready for more you can move on to the 'In-depth' section.
  • Below that you'll find The Whole Kit and Caboodle where I have all my posts organized by category to help you find things easily.
  • Feel like testing your knowledge? Near the bottom of the page you'll find, I'd Like to Buy A Bowel which has quizzes that accompany some of my posts.
  • Lastly at the bottom of this page there is a section of all of my YouTube videos if you're in the mood to watch rather than read.

That about covers most of it. Enjoy! <3

My Story

My Crohn's Disease Story

Living With a Rare Disease: My Life with CIPO

Spilling My Guts

Because sometimes you just need someone to To.

 It helps to know that someone has walked in your shoes. These are stories of the most difficult challenges that I’ve faced with my illnesses. Keep in mind that the subject matter in this section is heavier so proceed with caution and take care. 

The Positivi-tea Room

Welcome to the tea room! Looking for some hope, inspiration or perhaps a laugh?

Only uplifting content here and that is it! Nothing deep, scary, or heavy.

Elevate Your Mind

Improve your understanding of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis

IBD101

To understand more about Inflammatory Bowel Disease you have to begin with a solid foundation. These are the basics – articles written by me that I consider to be building blocks to a solid understanding of IBD. Once you have a good basic understanding of inflammatory bowel disease you can build upon that and learn more complex information about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
