I had an appointment with my current doctor for my yearly physical today (May 6, 2010) and had to fill out some paperwork. So I’m writing in the date and I realized that I had to put the year — 2010. And I thought back to how ill I was with Crohn’s disease 10 years ago. That I was able today to drive myself to the doctor, walk unassisted to the office, sit and wait without being in agony — all these things were unthinkable back in 2000.
I don’t like writing about Crohn’s disease because I don’t like identifying myself with it. “Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they’re yours.” – Richard Bach
