Deliciously Alive

Today’s blogger uses her space to share her journey and educate others about Crohn’s disease.

Please welcome Brandy of Deliciously Alive.

I write from my gut, literally. I have Crohn’s Disease (which is a digestive tract disorder) and I look to it as a teacher rather than an illness. My blog is my therapy and it is full of poems, pictures, drawings, and whatever else inspires me. I am also a mental health therapist, the wife to an amazing man, and so thankful to be sharing my little piece of the internet with this beautiful network of women.

She’d love for you to check out these gems!

  1. I have a friend with Crohn’s Disease and it hasn’t been a fun adventure but she’s been so positive about it, just like you. I’ll enjoy reading through your blog — congrats on being featured!

  2. Heading over now :)

  3. You are so gorgeous in this picture! Love how you are rocking the bold lip :) No one would ever guess you’re sick- I think that might be the nature of the disease? Don’t know much about it- off to check out your blog to learn!

  4. What a wonderful way to make something good out of something that’s… not so much. I have a cousin with Crohn’s Disease. Not fun at all for her, but she’s been pretty successful dealing with it through her dietary lifestyle. My hat’s off to you though. It goes to show, when you want to do something, anything, it CAN be done if you set your mind to it. I mean, look at you… SITS FB of the Day as well as dealing with the things that you have to in your everyday life as well. Talk about being a go-getter… man!

    Congratulations on your special SITS day, Brandy! Love you headshot. Gorgeous.

  5. I remember covering a story about a young boy with that disorder. It broke my heart. He was so young. Definitely checking out your blog. Btw, love your pic!:)

  6. Absolutely beautiful!

  7. My great aunt has Crohn’s, and I know how painful it can be. It is so wonderful that you turned this into an opportunity to educate others!

  8. Happy SITS Day! Looking forward to reading more!

    A dear friend of ours in City of Kawartha Lakes has Crohns and used his time in hospital to write and illustrate a book in support of Crohn’s research.
