I didn't have time to post this yesterday, but my goal was to go to a restaurant last night to meet 5 great friends who I haven't seen in years. I am in a Crohn's flare, and my anxiety is acting up. I dragged myself in the shower, put on some makeup, did my hair, took a Xanax and some Tylenol for the body aches, and spent TWO FULL HOURS in a crowded restaurant with SUCCESS!! Whoo-hoo!!
Today I feel like dog crap, but I am so proud of myself for pushing myself even though I am sick and anxious. Yes, there were some anxious moments, but nobody knew but me, and I DID IT!! Blessings, Julie
