Let that soak in for a moment.
Remission looks different for all of us… our experiences of the same disease can look so different, so why would we have a blanket idea of what remission means for all of us?!
I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently, and in the last few months, I feel like my definition of remission looks totally different than what I thought it was.
I would say that for where I am now- remission looks like having more energy each day, being pain free at least a few days a week, not having pain with bowel movements and only having 1-3 bowel movements a day. Remission looks like less chronic fatigue, being able to eat without fear, and having more energy to not only do the things I ‘need’ to do, but the things I ‘want’ to do.
I’m sure this definitely will change and evolve for me… and I’m accepting that.
What does remission look like for you? I encourage you to write it down in a notebook with the date, so you can see how perhaps it changes overtime. Or make a post/story and tag us on IG or FB! We would love to hear from you!
