Make a good day a great day NEW
by: Annette

Hi there,
Thank you for your comment. It's a positive message that will help to motivate others.
Too often we get weighed down by the many negative aspects of Crohn's disease and we don't share the good times with others and there are good times.

There is nothing like that feeling of waking up in the morning and realising that yes, you got a good nights sleep and yes, you have more energy. Suddenly, you realise that those abdominal cramps and joint pains seem to have disappeared overnight. What a wonderful feeling.

This is typical of this disease. It can disappear and flare-up, disappear and flare-up, but its what you can do with those good days that can make your life so much better. Pain can make you feel negative, so when you get the good days, unsurprisingly, you may want to shout it from the rooftops.

It's difficult to plan what to do when pain eases and Crohn's loses its grip on you. It can be a good idea to make a plan of all the things big and small that you would like to do when you are feeling better. It doesn't matter what it is, just make sure that it is something that makes you feel whole again and can put a smile on your face.

Days like these may sometimes seem few and far between but in fact, there will be times when the good days all merge into one and you will have respite from the disease.

When you make your list of things to do on a good day, make sure you have things that are quick and easy to do and that require little planning because you deserve to live a little and to enjoy your life to the fullest.

Enjoy every moment that you can in life as Crohn's disease or not, life is for living and you owe it to yourself to make the most of each day that you can. The good times will undoubtedly help you through the days which are not so good and will keep you resilient and strong.
