      Truthfully, I just refuel with caffeine ALL DAY. Is it healthy? Probably not, but it’s better than sleeping all day. I really like the Celsius drinks and water packets.

      Caffeine, weed, and self-care.

      I have to take iron to have any energy but also b12. I can see a difference when I take it. But I also never miss my sugar free redbull lol.

      I'm always so tired. I take naps when I can, sometimes a short nap in my car at work during "lunch". I try to take natural supplements, I have some I like, but I'm not sure the rules on talking about products, they aren't miracle workers but it helps some. I wish there was a better solution. Talked to my doctor/specialist about it and they basically said, yep, thats your life with your conditions.

      I like snacks, I get really light headed and they help with that and energy for me. And honestly a lot of resting because I don't always have the energy to human

      You gotta put gas in a car to keep it going. Try anything to get your blood flow pumping, that's what really helped me recover from mental burn out, and give me the motivation to try n do things to improve myself, and mental health

      I learned that it's something we have to live with, as brutally honest and hard it is to hear, we just have to accept it. I'm sorry if this isn't what you want to hear, but I'm here if you need to chat

      Lots of short naps and smaller meals instead of 3 big ones I have like 5 small ones so that I don’t crash mid day :)

      Ive been off all meds since January of this year. I attribute it mainly to following the Wim Hof method. Daily cold exposure with ice baths, and breathwork 3-7 times per week. Happy to help any other crohnies struggling. Finally beating this!

      Not a big fan on tea? Try herb capsules👍

      My mom suffered with this and she would drink redbulls all day... I suggest looking into herbs that help with energy something that works with you body's natural chemistry 💕💕
