Post a vintage photo of yourself, with a captain about the photo and where you were in terms of your health condition.
This is one of those days where I wish we had a choice of topics to talk about. Instead, this was the only topic available and sadly, I have nothing to offer.
I don’t have pictures of myself while I am sick. I got sick before the internet and smartphones. When I was diagnosed, Instagram didn’t exist. I never ever thought about documenting my journey with this disease. I never took before and after photos.
That isn’t to say I don’t have pictures of myself. I have normal pictures of myself pre-Crohns and post-Crohns. None of them speak about my disease though. None tell a story of my condition and where I was. The fact is that I never really knew what I had or what it was about so why would I put it in pictures.
So sadly, this is a very short post. But the bright spot is that from time to time I take pictures now so just keep an eye out. I know in another couple of months I will have some real good ones to share (Take Steps and Get Your Guts In Gear).
