Hi! Happy Thursday! I hope your week has been great! Mine has been super stressful and I haven’t been feeling good this week. My stomach has really been feeling awful this week. It sucks. I’m trying everything that I possibly can for my stomach to deal with it now. I’m looking forward to actually going to the gastrointestinal doctor the week we come back from our honeymoon to start my intense treatment for Crohn’s. I am such a stubborn person and I am regretting my decision months ago to forgo the intense treatment until after our wedding. I’m betting that I probably would have felt much better now. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous leaving this country in the amount of pain that my stomach is in. I’m going to be prepared though. I will bring with me any and every type of medication for my stomach that I can get. I want to be prepared so that I am ready for the worst.
Of course I am going to be careful with what I am eating but that is besides the point. With Crohn’s Disease, you never really know when stomach pain is going to strike or when you need to go to the bathroom. Sorry for the tmi, but it’s true! There was actually something interesting that was realized last week that I forgot to mention. I am a long time viewer of the show, The Secret Life of The American Teenager. Well one of the actors from the show publicly announced that he has Crohn’s Disease. He has it very severe and required surgery. He plays Ben on Secret Life, and his name is Ken Baumann.
I actually felt comforted when he came out and said that he has it. It makes me feel comforted somewhat to know that I am not alone. It’s hard not to feel alone when going through something like this. Also, the actress Shannen Dougherty has it as well but she doesn’t speak publicly about it. I did watch her show about her planning her wedding. I was hoping at some point she would discuss it but she didn’t. That is okay though. It just makes me feel somewhat comforted to know other people feel the same as I do.
But moving on, let’s talk about something more exciting. What do you say? Yesterday when Mike got home from work, we went to the jewelry store to pick up my wedding band! Eeek!!! I was so excited and nervous at the same time! It turned out beautifully and matches the band of my engagement ring. I really like it! I thought it was going to feel weird wearing two rings on the same hand but my wedding band is super light and is not very big so it didn’t feel weird at all. I want to wear it. It was hard putting it back in the box. I was wearing it our car ride home just because I couldn’t stop looking at it. I will be featuring my wedding band and Mike’s wedding band, next week for Wedding Talk Wednesday. I’m excited about it!
We both didn’t feel like cooking so we decided to get dinner from one of my favorite places. Yes, you guessed it, Boston Market. That place just screams comfort to me. After the long stressful day I had, I needed comfort. I’m so glad that Mike suggested stopping there. He knows me all too well.
I just love their food there. It tastes so good to me and it really is comforting. I’m not sure my stomach enjoyed the mashed potatoes and stuffing too much but I sure did! Sometimes you just need to do what you need to do. The rest of the night we spent watching Big Brother. Anyone else watching Big Brother this season? What do you think?
I’m not a huge fan of the people competing this season. I keep hoping that it gets better but I think the last two seasons were so much more entertaining. I’m still going to watch of course but it’s just not the same. I think they need to bring back Rachel! She keeps it much more exciting!
One more question for you guys, what is something that you find comfort in? I’m just curious. I find comfort in certain foods. I also find comfort in talking to my family and friends. I have found lately by talking to people who are close to me, it really does make me feel comforted and loved. I think at one of the most stressful times in our lives, I really like to feel comforted by those around me.
Well those are my thoughts for today. I hope you have a lovely day and be careful! We are supposed to get crazy storms tonight.
