Erratic but optimistic

Ugh, sorry for the erratic postings. I got pretty sick in July — food poisoning that turned into a Crohn’s flare. It was the sickest I’ve been in 4 years. I had to be rehydrated in the hospital and I missed 2 weeks of work. Then there were a few weeks of strange symptoms (possibly adrenal), including severe fatigue. Finally, I was diagnosed with iron deficiency, which is common in Crohn’s patients┬ábut often overlooked. Fingers crossed that the iron supplements will work. So far, so good.

I have been meeting my summer goals for 2 weeks. Summer goals: be able to eat fruit without becoming ill, and ride my bike. I even managed a 20K ride last week! Things are looking up.
