This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Gut Health Storylines App for IBD such as Chrohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. All opinions are my own.
There used to be a commercial for some smart phone or something that would list different things that people need help with throughout their day and they would say something like “Do you want to know where you parked the car? There is an app for that”.
It seemed there was an app for everything and anything you could possible think of but I never thought there would be an app for IBD but guess what, there is an app for that!
There is an app for people who suffer from Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis?
The Gut Health Storylines App is perfect for anyone with IBD such as Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
It is very hard living with a chronic illness such as Ulcerative Colitis or Chrohn’s Disease for many reasons. One of the harder things for me was being able to remember to take all of the medicines on time each day. I set timers on my phone and tried to keep track of when my meds were scheduled to be taken but a lot of the times I couldn’t remember if I had already taken my meds or not.
The Gut Health Storylines App lets you create a list of your medications and it will not only give you reminders for when they are due to be taken but you will also be able to mark off that you have taken them!
This is the perfect little app for me because my memory is terrible and has proven to me that even though I do something daily for years, I will not retain the information and remember to do it again in the future, no matter how hard I try.
My memory has failed me in many ways when it comes to my illness especially when I head to the doctor and forget the list of symptoms I am experiencing. It can be so frustrating when your doctor asks you what kind of symptoms you have been having and you have nothing to tell him, although you have been complaining about the medicines making you feel sick or the disease not being under control.
I like being able to pull my phone out and look through the Questions to Ask tab in the Top Tools section of my Gut Health Storylines App to read off the list of problems I need to bring to my doctors attention.
Another struggle that people with Chrohn’s Disease & UC suffer from is a large list of symptoms that we aren’t sure if they are coming from our medicines or our disease.
I love being able to keep track of my symptoms each day to determine what may exasperate or even cause them. I can even journal what I am doing or eating that day that may help me figure out the root cause for each symptom.
Once I have updated my status of symptoms, mood, and what medications I have taken for the day, I get a good job! It’s nice to see a little appreciation once in a while, even if it is from an app.
If you suffer from IBD such as Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis, you have to download the Gut Health Storylines App and start keeping track of your health today.
