UCVlog: Nadia’s Journey Through Crohn’s Colitis: The Partial Portion; How Illness Effects Choices

Having a chronic illness effects day to day living, but it also impacts decisions we make in our life. These life altering choices that we have to make because illness sometimes robs us of an opportunity, and we are unable to experience things to the fullest extent. This is not a “feel sorry for me” video at all. I am just saying that there are times when, as much as I want to have a full experience, I can’t fully enjoy it because my illness tends to dominate over everything else, and my road to recovery often is interrupted by setbacks that profoundly effect my life. It’s the way it is. But I just can’t help wanting to know what it’s like to have it all BUT I think I appreciate more of what I have because of it. So, it’s double edged, Good and Bad. Do any of you feel that way sometimes?? Let me know. No matter what, life can be wonderful. Comment or Message me anytime. GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY! KEEP FIGHTING!! Follow Us on Facebook!

    You could try buying a juicer and juicing green veggies and carrots and fruits. This could help strengthen your body and help you out with your chronic illness. -Hope this helps, I love hearing your story, you are a strong person <3

    I certainly remember surgery and hospital stays setting me back. I used to think of it as “pausing life” while I got my health under control, but then I realized that if you simply wait for things to get better all the time you might be missing out on something here in the present. Keep on fighting! I’m sure some good will come out of this break from college!

    You’re amazing, Nadia!

    Hi Nadia! I definatly understand the partial portion! I was accepted into The National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine program. Which would have meant I could spend a week exploring what it would be like to be a doctor and get information on possible colleges. I was planning to go Summer 2010 but with my health worsening had to make the choice not to commit to going (you had to this month) since the chances aren’t looking good of me being up to going. Maybe I can do Summer 2011..hopefully!
