Short-Lived Happy Tears

Date: April 28, 2013 at 2:32 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 73

Last week — like so many of the ones that came before it — was something of a disaster for me. But between the rage-filled phone calls with angry nurses, the sleepless nights and the increasingly-high fevers, there were a […]

I Didn't Want To Write About Boston

Date: April 22, 2013 at 7:39 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 99

It felt strange not to acknowledge what happened on the day of the Boston Marathon here. I kept feeling like, “I blog about running…I should have an opinion. I should have feelings. And I should share them…right?” But every time […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Day 10

Date: April 11, 2013 at 6:45 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 46

The food’ll come out…tomorrow!!! Thank goodness. Yes, I made it to Day 10 of the juice cleanse. On that note alone, I think we can jump right into the recently-neglected Thankful Things Thursday. I’m thankful I get to chew food […]

An Update On The Great Juice Cleanse Of 2013

Date: April 8, 2013 at 7:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 42

I hate juice. I hate fruit juice. I hate vegetable juice. I hate freshly-made juice and I hate Cooler Cleanse juice. So yeah, The Great Juice Cleanse of 2013 is going supremely well! Clearly. To refresh your potentially short-term memory: […]

“This Is An Opportunity, Not A Punishment”

Date: April 4, 2013 at 7:16 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 85

Hi. I’m alive. And I’m doing OK. The Remicade, as suspected, never worked. The hospital visit was worth it for the fluid IV alone — my fever has been down since Monday and I’m not as deathly exhausted as I […]

Desperately Seeking Optimism

Date: April 1, 2013 at 7:08 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

Let’s get the cheesy stuff out of the way first… From the very bottom of my diseased little heart, thank you all so much for your kind comments, your sweet thoughts and your nice Tweets. Being ill sucks, but every […]

White Flag

Date: March 27, 2013 at 11:39 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 97

Things are not so good around here. Things are, unfortunately, getting progressively worse around here. It’s been a really bad past week or so. I was optimistic before I left for L.A. Even though the trip was going to involve […]

I Want My Life Back

Date: March 19, 2013 at 8:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 68

Well if that’s not the whiniest little post title of all time… One thing people tend to tell me when I’m Crohn’s flaring is that I “manage to stay so positive and optimistic.” Maybe online it seems that way. It’s […]

Thankful Things Thursday: I'm Doing My Best

Date: March 14, 2013 at 6:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 91

Ohh I am not feeling thankful today. Sucks, right? Instead I am feeling pretty awful. Minus the “pretty” part. Physically I’m deteriorating. Mentally I’m not far behind. The other day, when I first started feeling really sick, I remember thinking […]

The Things I Thought About This Week

Date: March 1, 2013 at 8:58 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 46

I’m typically optimistic on Monday mornings. New week! Fresh start! Time to do some ass kicking! On Sunday night, though, I couldn’t sleep. I was stressed about work stuff and my brain was louder than the traffic out on Third […]
