Inflammatory Bowel Disease PSANovember 7, 2011
Some time back I had come up with this idea to try to explain to others, what is inflammatory bowel disease, and although I could describe my own situation, I decided to broaden my search in describing IBD by asking others how they would describe it. What words would you use if you were asked by someone that does not have Inflammatory Bowel Disease to make them understand what we really go through? Hence, my idea for this public service announcement was hatched.
This is a compilation of the responses we received on our fan page on Facebook.
Along with our own thoughts and descriptive words, we put it to music: Boyce Avenue–Skyscraper cover. The lyrics are perfect as they talk about how you can be broken down (in this case, by illness), but you can rebuild and come out stronger. That’s what we all hope and strive for. This is a message of HOPE.
Maybe this can be a way for others to have an idea through our words even if they never understand how it feels…
“Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back in amazement at what you have been through and you will ask yourself… ‘How did I get through it all?” ~Unknown
