So what is this blog about? Hopefully it will become more than what I initially intended when I thought about starting a blog. Which was to let people know how I was recovering after operations which I had at the end of 2012.
I had initially thought about calling the blog “Me and my poo” I decided against that in the end. I didn’t want the blog to only be about inflammatory bowel disease. That had dictated my life for quite some time. I did not want it dictating my blog. I am intending for the blog to be about overcoming adversity and enjoying life…it is not all about poo.
I do not feel I am always that inclined to talking about myself or letting people know what is going on in my life. Often this is because I don’t think people would want to know and they have more interesting things to concern themselves with.
I was quite ill for about two years and the only way to overcome this illness and be able to get on with my life was to have a couple of operations. The illness and the operations were tough and I got depressed at times. I want to let people know that it is possible to overcome difficulty if you believe in yourself and look on the positives rather than negatives. Think more about what you can do rather than what you can’t. For some people the things you can’t do may outweigh that which you can, but you can still do something. While you still have air in your lungs you can achieve something.
I will write another post detailing my illness and the operations. If you do not like talk of poo and bodily functions then it is best that you do not read that document.
Essentially I hope this blog is about me trying to enjoy the good, happy and beautiful things in life and not let any difficulties or adversities get in the way or hold me back.
