I always get asked the question “How do you go out to eat at restaurants with your diet?”. I never really know what to answer, because I honestly never really know what to expect at restaurants. Every time I go out to eat, it’s like rolling the dice and hoping for the best. One restaurant can be kindly accommodating, while another can bring out my meal three different times, each plate with something on it that I had previously said I can’t eat.
It's Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week. That's right. We have a whole special week dedicated just to us.
Earlier, I was reminiscing over text with my Mom about how things used to be and how far I've come. I feel like most parents eagerly wait for that one text a week that they get from their child to let them know that they're okay. As for me, my mom literally has to tell me to stop talking to her sometimes because I'll text her to tell her that it's snowing out or that I drank enough water today. It's funny. I just can't help it. She's been there for me through it all. She's my go-to, even if she really doesn't want to hear what I ate for a snack today.
Honestly, by now you're probably asking yourself what the heck does any of this have to do with Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week. I'm getting to the point, I swear.
