Staying positive

After being unwell since AprilĀ and riding this horrible roller coaster I'm more determined than ever to be well. I just have to learn how to cope better with the one step back that this will throw at me now and then

After a bad week of tummy tightness and rumbling am starting to feel the tide turning. Lets hope it was only a case of two steps forward and one step back.

A step back is still a step forward. You are fighting this with strength and courage. Take pride in that. Getting up each day is in itself a success. Remember, every day is another day you are a step further into the process and another day to be proud of having overcome.

Thank you so much for that. Every time I cry, I say a pray asking for the strenght to continue the fight. What I must do every time I cry is give thanks for what I do have. I do that many times through the day but at that moment it might be more helpful.

my dad is coming to spend some time with me and I\'ll make use of a ready shoulder to cry on. It will be good to have someone around to help me take my mind of my woes. The focus is there 24/7 and cannot be healthy. Still very tender in the tummy and pain all of the time but the gurgling has stopped so I guess that\'s something.
