"God my commander, freedom my mission, relationship my weapon, love my ammunition." - The Chronic WarriorIf you've suffered from Crohn's or another chronic illness for any length of time, the greatest gift any one could give you would be to feel "normal" again. You're like a superhero, called to an epic destiny, yet forever struggling against the desire to be "normal". You want to live a normal life, with normal problems. You're definitely a super hero but unfortunately you don't have super powers. Instead, you're super sick.
Hey, Nate Ohlson here,
Chronic illness, specifically Crohn's Disease, transformed my life.
But enough about what I want. What do you want?
Our doctors, as brilliant and helpful as they may be, have very little to say when it comes to things such as diet, exercise, thought life, or stress management. Unfortunately, all these neglected topics play a huge factor in our health. This is where we want to step in.
If you could ask for two gifts, the second would most likely be in regard to people. You're tired of explaining for the millionth time what your disease is, and annoyed by every acquaintance telling you how their brother's, uncles, cousin-in-law, twice removed has Crohn's disease and how they used X pill and now they feel 100% better!! Sure, they mean well, but seriously, you know it doesn't often work like that. You're boss is breathing down your neck about the multiple sick days you've taken and you're coworkers are starting to dislike covering for you. To top it off, if anyone says, "You don't look sick!" one more time you will unleash a most foul string of cuss words at them(at least in your head). Though you can hardly blame people for acting the way they do, you sincerely wish they would just "get it".
I won't be nearly so bold to claim the we here at Chronic Warrior can return you to your normal, or unleash an awakening upon the world so everyone suddenly “gets it”. However, we can try.
Here's what Chronic Warrior can do for you:
