Love Your Intestines - Crohn's by Arsenious Love Your Intestines - Crohn's by Arsenious
As a sufferer of Crohn's Disease, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my intestines. But it's very important to love and care for them so that they can be happy, and in turn not cause you immense pain. [They love yogurt.]

I made this as a way of showing my pride, a way to hopefully spread awareness of Crohn's and Colitis [and their cousin illnesses] and to remind others who suffer from IBD's and Immune System troubles, to always remember to take care of themselves-

Don't be angry at your intestines; They just need some love.

As always, comments and suggestions are more than welcomed and appreciated :aww:

Cheers!

~Arsenic.

I'm not angry at my intestines, just the disease. :(

I used to be angry at mine until I realized they were also a victim ):

Also, I need to make a note to redo this picture o.o
I've learned so much about digital art in the time since I drew this...

I feel exactly like this a lot of the time but it's true, you just have to be careful and give 'em some love :D And I think I'll try yogurt!

Thank you (:

I can be pretty childish about things at times, such as personifying guts lol It makes it easier for me though, looking at them as more of a being and less of a thing. They certainly seem to have a mind of their own at times...

Thank you ^_^

And it's important to be kind to your body all the time! Most of your immune system is in your digestive tract, so when it gets grumpy, it can upset your entire body ):

I'm rather fond of it as well. It has real meaning to it, and a purpose.

PHANTASTICK!

Here is a stick, it's made out of phanta wood. I hope you like it =D

This mentality made me think of this teddy bear I have with a frown on his face. I've been giving him love to try and make him smile for years. It hasnt' worked yet, but I still have faith. ^_^
