These days, many people blog about their personal experiences, and blogs about IBD, IBS, and other autoimmune disorders are common. While they all have something to offer, I would like to highlight six blogs that helped me when I was struggling after being diagnosed.
- Girl in Healing
This blog is great for general tips about how to take care of yourself if you have IBD, specifically if you have Crohn’s disease.
- Colitis Ninja
This blog showed me that I’m not alone and that IBD isn’t a weakness. Reading the blogger’s posts gave me a much-needed confidence boost.
- Heal Me in the Kitchen
As someone who has had to follow a strict diet for years, it’s nice to know I’m in good company. This blog is full of great ideas about cooking for a paleo diet.
- Ali on the Run
Through her blog, Ali shows that you can be an athlete even when you’re dealing with IBD. Her blog is extremely inspirational, and it will show you that anything is possible.
- Lights Camera Crohn’s
This blog is also great for general tips and for understanding someone else’s personal experience with the disease.
- It Could Be Worse
True to its lighthearted title, this blog has helped me to stay positiveeven during difficult times.
I followed these blogs when I was first diagnosed, and I still keep up with some of them now. They are informative and inspirational, and, most importantly, they let me know I am not alone. I hope these blog recommendations will help you as much as they helped me
