Now that I have been diagnosed with IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), I have to take anti-inflammatory pills forever, and a day. I’m not ashamed of it. It is what it is, and many people are affected by this disease. I’m not sure how it is going to affect my ability to compete in the future because anti-inflammatory meds can prevent muscle gain. I will continue to workout and train because I would like to believe that I can find a way to cope with this disease and still compete. There is so much more I want to do in the fitness world. I am currently working to earn my CPT certificate, and hope to have it by the end of the year!
