CD makes you special
Hello again; I wish that everyone who is reading this topic is healthy and well.
In one of the researches which research on the needs of crohn's patients, I read this statement for one of cases:" IBD doesn't have to be a negative , sometimes you can turn it into a positive , like having a more laidback point of view of life" . I stopped a long time on this statement and tried to make a relationship between it and what I am living now as a patient of Crohn's Desease . However, I realized that I think I had got a new point of view for my former life and presenting life, also I had my specific sight for my future life. I was always comparing my achievements with my peers, and try to go on and maintain my studying level which is high once, to be honest, that is because I like to be special, or to be higher than others on my study, who doesn't!? but now, I don't feel that I have to make this comparative because what I am doing now , however it is a small thing , I can define it as an achievement which I can feel and enjoy it, all of that because while I am doing it I am enjoying a good health.
Also when I am findout that my abilities are equal to others, it is in the fact a superiority because they are healthy and they don't have my fears or they are not living with the circumstances which I live with.
I had realized all that recently when one of my friends told me that if she was me she wouldn't handle it for even a minute and she would leave the college..( that's because I failed on my first semester in my college as a result of my illness) but I am still in the same college , struggling and handling my stuff to not allow for myself get nervous, other wise it will effect on my health.
What I am feeling now is exactly what I read once that " It gives you a drive to do things and succeed".
On the other hand one of the advantages which I learnt is that " you really get to know who your friends are".
Do you feel like me? Is it true?
