I thought today I would share my story. I have shared it before BUT I always get asked so I decided to share it again. So for those who may be interested here is
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 12 years old. At that time no one knew what it was, what it would do to me or whether I would just get better. My parents had no idea as the doctor who diagnosed me could not tell them anything anyway. The doctors told me I could eat whatever I wanted.
My parents and the doctors were scared; I was scared. I wondered how this would affect my life. Would I still be able to be active in my life or would I become a sick person on the sidelines feeling isolated from the world, stuck inside, not participating in the things that I loved. I wondered if I would miss out on having a girlfriend, going to uni and having all the things I dreamt of before I got sick.
Well, let me tell you, all of those things have happened to me over time. I have felt alone; isolated from the world and my friends. I have had three major operations and taken countless medications. I even nearly died in the hospital twice after complications of my surgery when I developed a major infection. I have experienced enormous pain and bloating.
I have not been able to do the things that I wanted to do. I have sat on the sidelines and watched others have the fun and seen my self-confidence slowly fade. But let me give you the good news; that is not the case now.
I have spent years studying the way to a fantastic and healthy life, even if you have Crohn’s disease. I have traveled the world and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars finding a solution. I want to now share this with you so you can have a life truly worth living.
I am now a Chiropractor; married and have two beautiful boys. I am living the life I always wanted. I surf every day; I travel to out-of-the-way places chasing waves and having the most wonderful experiences. I am very involved in my children’s lives and have energy to burn to participate fully in every aspect of my life.
I want to help you make sure that you can have the life that you want and actually deserve. I want you to experience all that life offers. You need to have energy to burn, to feel you fit in; you should be able to look the way you want and achieve the things you want to achieve. I also want your life to be free of worry, not knowing when you might be sick or for how long the flare will up last.
So I am here to share the things I have studied, the things I have learnt from experience.
