As patients with chronic illnesses, it’s our responsibility to do everything we can to give ourselves the best chance. Yes, we need a great support network around us. Yes, we are going to need help from time to time. But we also need to put in the work and effort to make our lives the best they can be also.
Now this isn’t easy. It takes patience, time, energy, and mental strength to be able to get back up again after our IBD knocks us down. As Prince Ea says, being positive person can help your health.

So, are you waking up with the good intention of living this day to the fullest you can? Or are you waking up worried about how you’ll survive the day?
