I am one of a growing number of people that suffers from Crohn's Disease. Crohn's Disease is an auto-immune disorder that I have suffered and lived with since I was 16 years old. After a very recent flare-up, I decided that I should document my episodes and experiences. Most of the documents and writings I find on the web are rather cold and my hope is that I can show -- through my words -- what goes through my mind.

Which Step Have You Reached Today?
I think this particular drawing from Facebook Art is quite illustrative of what those with an auto-immune disease go through on a daily basis. I remember when the person that shared this with me posted this. I remembered when I could never make it to the top of the ladder. At this point, I always make it to the top without fail. There are some days that it is more difficult, but I push myself through. That first step -- for me that is getting out of bed -- is always the hardest no matter what state of remission I am in.
