every feel like your disease defines more of who you are than you wish it would???
even though we live with chronic illness does NOT mean it is who and what we are ---- i believe this and have determined to live it with all i am! i am NOT Crohn's: i have crohn's, i treat it, i educate myself often about it, i am sometimes (well, maybe often) physically controlled by it, BUT it doesn't define me!
rather, i am friendly, i am a mother, i am a writer, i am a dog walker, i am a gardener, i love to laugh AND these are some things that should define me! i am determined!
HOW about YOU?? are you determined to not just BE disease, what ARE you??
