We're all allowed to have bad days, and we all will have bad days. My mom says that "it's how we rise to meet our challenges that defines us", I think she might be on to something.
I'm hoping that by sharing some more of my experiences with Crohn's Disease that I can help to create some more empathy in this world of ours for people living with chronic disease. While you can't walk a mile in my shoes, and I wouldn't want you to, you can learn about what it might be like to have this be your reality. After all, the only way to encourage empathy is through awareness and you need awareness to create empathy. Please don't stop trying to understand the lives of others, together we can come together to make this world a kinder and more supportive place!
