I don’t know why this took me so long… Or why I really haven’t posted at all on a weekly basis since somewhere around March. But Camp Oasis really was a highlight of this past year as a Crohn’s patient! It was amazing to see how many people were living … More Sorry I’m Late!
This is a guest post by a special supporter because Johanna is in West Virginia at Camp Oasis, a summer camp for kids with Crohn’s and colitis. At intake, Johanna got a huge high-five from the medical team when they realized her medication list was… empty. … More “Really? No Meds? – High Five, Girl!”
Ok, I’m sorry. It’s been like, a whole month since I’ve done anything with this blog. But life gets in the way, even when you’re a twelve-year-old who mainly just has to focus on homework and school and what to wear tomorrow.

I guess this is it. I’m standing at the edge of 2016, looking down into the shining waters of the new year below. So, let me jump in! I’ve been thinking, and maybe that’s why this post is two days late, about what a whole year will be like on this diet. New Year’s Day … More New Year, New Me (hopefully)!
As a new month has started and it has been a while since I’ve really written about what’s happening in my life (and not recipes or thank you’s).
