"Those were the darkest and hardest days of my life, and the biggest thing that I would do differently is I would ask for help. Instead, I hid, I locked that apartment door, and I wouldn’t let anyone see me."
Last week, in honor of Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week, I talked about living with these diseases for the past 30 years. (Listen to that episode here.) Now, I'm wrapping things up by talking about running with Crohn's disease, navigating the emotional and mental sides of this disease (trigger warning here: lots of talk of depression and being in a really low, dark place), and how to support the people in your life living with a chronic illness. Plus, my hotel lobby hack (that rarely works, but I always try!), my fear of trail cams and small-town Facebook groups, and so much more.
