If IBD Is Ruining Your Social Life, Read On:
Daily, I come across people who are wanting to heal naturally from ulcerative colitis & Crohn’s disease because they are craving getting back to their social lives just as they were before their diagnosis.
Now, there are a few people for whom that makes sense. But for most of the people that I work with, it’s clear that their past social lives were setting them up for failure.
Whether it was a diet full of fast food, too much alcohol, smoking, staying out late, substance abuse, etc., they seem to crave getting back to it.
And I know what that’s like because I was there too.
Especially if those sorts of activities were the activities around which your friendships were built and based.
But here’s the thing.
You now have a choice. A poignant moment in your life; an opportunity to push the reset button.
Not many people are fortunate enough to be forced to make this type of decision..
(1) Be miserable about your diagnosis. Be depressed, defeated, angry, and resentful.
(2) Make positive nutrition & lifestyle choices so that you can heal, and get back to the social life that was screwing you up.
(3) Make positive nutrition & lifestyle choices so that you can heal, and build a life that supports your long term health and happiness.
Which one do you choose?
I’ll give you a clue: Option 3.
Did you get the clue?
If your friendships run deep, then they will respect your new lifestyle choices and still be there for you.
And if you lose a few people on your journey to living a better life, then so be it.
You will pick up others, trust me.
Don’t be scared of the new life that’s on offer.
It is more full than you think.
