      October 2022 when I had to go to urgent care for an infection. They took care of it, but when they found out it was recurring they referred me to a specialist. He asked me about my symptoms, did an exam, and went “you probably have Crohn’s, but we’ll have to do tests to know for sure.” First time any doctor had taken my symptoms seriously and not immediately dismissed them as either “just IBS” or “no big deal.” (It was indeed Crohn’s)

      Finding a doctor that listens to me and works with me as a team to turn my health around. She is explains my numbers in language I can understand. We set goals for me to work towards. But best of all I feel so much better and don't have a fear of going to the doctors anymore.

      Nothing yet. I don't think you can really have a "turning point" if you have a progressive health issue:(

      For me it was learning that the order that you eat your food in has an impact on your blood sugar. I was near the prediabetic range, and I was able to get to an A1c of 5 pretty quickly. The biggest change I made were from a biochemist who goes by the “glucose goddess” on social media & her website. I changed the order in which I eat my food, so fiber first, protein, then fats, and then starches and sugar last. I try to do this at every meal as much as possible. Also I try to have a savory breakfast, so very little sugar in the mornings & that sets my day up right, so I’m not on a “glucose rollercoaster” all throughout the day.

      My health has remained the same over the last 2.5 years but I guess a turning point for me would be getting comfortable with it. Knowing that when I have severe symptoms they will pass, that I won't die, that I'll pull through. This has made it easier to live with the many days of severe symptoms. Accepting what is while I continue to work toward a cure.
