Before being diagnosed with an IBD or maybe I should say before I overcame my IBD using natural crohn s disease treatments my priorities were pretty screwed up. I came from a poor single parent family and I grew up in a poor high crime neighborhood. Growing up all I wanted was to have nice things and be a so called "baller shot caller" whether that would be having nice cars, clothes, watches etc so that people would envy me. Perhaps I also thought all this materialistic garbage would make me feel like I was successful or important in life...but this was the furthest thing from the truth. Now looking back I can see that everything I heard from my friends, watched on TV, heard in the music I listened to told me these things were what life was about. Experiencing the brutualness of a severe degenerative disease made me realize truly how precious life is, and that it can be taken away from you at any time. It's ironic to think when you are at your worst times you don't think about materialistic garbage but rather friends & family, loved ones, travelling, experiencing new things, and making a contribution to this rock we call earth. Since overcoming my IBD I have sincerely cherished every day and try to live with an attitude of gratitude and have realize I have a far greater purpose than just being a walking spending consumer. So, when I say I'm grateful for this disease and how it changed my life I say so diligently through experience and reason.
