Fighting Crohn's Disease, I often feel like I let people around me down. I've spent family holidays, like Easter, Mother's Day, Family Day, and Christmas either in bed or in the hospital. In fact, rather than opening up Christmas Day presents this year, I asked to go back to bed:
"I Bet My Life", to me, is about overcoming your past; taking whatever is holding you back and letting go of it so that it doesn't continue to stop you from being the best "you" possible. I am LIVING with Crohn's Disease. Each day, I try to accept that this is my "normal" and find new ways to connect with the world. I am still me.
Jacob's Healing Rooms is more than just a nice place to receive various IV therapies. It's a place of hope. Hope to be able to put the past behind us; hope that one day we can overcome this disease; hope that we don't have to feel like we have disappointed anyone because of our health. Please help me make these treatment rooms become inspiring places of hope and healing.
