I tell my Kindergartners to make choices that are kind. Isn’t that the Kindergarten explanation for how Crohn’s disease works; it causes your body to make the unkind choice to attack itself. Ever since I was 13 part of my daily life is deciding how to manage having Crohn’s disease. I am free to make choices that heal or choices that destroy.
Being a part of the Patient Advisory Council, Take Steps, and CCFA encourages me to make decisions that bring wellness to myself and others.
