I suffer from mild Crohn’s disease together with a touch of Ankylosing Spondylitis and occasional bouts of uveitis.
The worst thing is the fatigue. I’m a middle-aged man so should be productive, working hard at my job then coming home to tile the bathroom. I wish I could!
I’m lucky- my Crohn’s is mild. It can be a terrible disease and I feel for people who have it severely.
My diseases sometimes make me melancholy- is that what used to be called “phlegmatic”? I’m not sure. I’m constantly questioning my place in the world. Happily, I do realise how lucky I am.
Well- off to watch telly.
