An Open Letter to Myself

Dear Self

I know life is tough right now, and that you can’t see an end to this pain that you are in.

I know you would do anything to make it stop even suicide.

The symptoms and agony you feel will lessen, I know it’s a lifelong chronic illness you’ve got and it’s a lot to take in right now. But please I beg you, keep moving forward, take each day as it comes, and always listen to your body as you know it best.

Rest up when you need and don’t push yourself too hard, there are other days ahead.

And when your feeling blue, try and be a little kinder to yourself, I know you are a worrier just like your mum was and you feel useless and guilty for being Ill,  but remember that it’s not your fault.

Crohn’s disease is tough, it knocks you down, but you get right back up again. You’re definately going to learn alot about yourself and what’s important in life, so try not to sweat the small stuff.

I can promise you that even though there are bad days, there are lots of good days ahead too, where you can enjoy life and not think about your illness.

You have got this, you don’t always have to put on a brave face, just keep moving forward.
Forward to those brighter days.

And most importantly never ever give up!
