Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Day 3

Post a picture that symbolizes your condition and your experiences.

Here is what I thought was a good one for symbolizing Crohn’s disease and my experiences with it:

I know I’m not supposed to use words but I want to elaborate a tiny bit as to why I picked this image.

Living with Crohn’s is a constant battle of ups and downs. I can attest to that. Dan has gone through good periods and bad ones and there is no rhyme or reason as to when they occur. It can feel like we are on a roller coaster ride- going up a hill to get to remission, plateauing when he feels well, and then plummeting when his Crohn’s acts up.

This picture also represents how there are highs and lows emotionally with Crohn’s disease- happy when you are feeling well, scared when something is wrong, and sad when the disease interrupts your life.
