Why I care about Crohns

Hint: Because this cutie  😍

Crohn’s disease belongs to a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract. (From What is Crohns?)

My partner Kyle was diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2010. For the past 6 years, we’ve seen different parts of this disease. Chronic illness has no cure. Flare-ups come in waves.

Kyle was hospitalized for about a week in 2014. He had a bowel obstruction and was constipated for over a month. Despite his frustrations and skepticism with Western medicine, we were relieved that this hospital visit potentially saved his life.

Thankfully it was a pretty painless procedure. They had to cut a small incision into his belly, insert a drain, and let that muck naturally drip out during his hospital stay.

I’m happy to report that six months later, we packed our car and moved to Colorado.

I’m even happier to report that he told me yesterday that his Crohns is in remission, thanks to the large amounts of cannabis consumed.

Its awesome to see him energized, without pain, and in a good mental state. But I can assure you, he’s had his painful moments for sure.

But nothing as bad as when we lived in misery (Missouri).

Living in a liberated state is a blessing. Rent can be hard here, as well as keeping steady employment due to the influx of people. But we count our blessings every day.
