I was recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis after having almost three rough years of not feeling myself due to IB issues. I discovered it is time for Me to take care of Me instead of always taking care of everyone else.

I have started a new food plan suggested by my Gastro Doc: The Low-FODMAP plan which should help the issues of my digestive disorders, and help me begin a new life of feeling like myself again.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5&6

"Do you live in tomorrow when you must face today? At times, I forget to live in the moment, but what do I miss? The setting sun, the sound of birds' singing and, most importantly, I miss meeting myself. I am constantly changing, and if I don't spend time with myself in the here and now, I will never get to appreciate who I truly am because I am too busy focusing on who I want to be."

    Hi Janel,
    I am on tbll also but have not been very active over their lately. Paula is also co-leader of the Rome wasn't built in a day team so I had joined that one also. I stay pretty busy just on sparkpeople. I have been feeling guilty about not being more active over on the site. I need to just make time for that. Any, welcome, and thanks for adding me to your list of friends

    I just had to come back and edit this and tell you I like the same shows you do. But I have to add one more, I like Grey's Anatomy too.
