I hope you’ll watch this whole thing even though my face isn’t in this video. There’s some good tips in here! I talk about how I store my TPN supplies, acceptance when being on TPN, making travel easier, and lots of other stuff because I’m all ovah the place!!

I’ve got some video ideas and hope to record them in a few days so hopefully you’ll be seeing more content here soon.

    It’s always good to hear from you! And your videos have such an unique style, even if the whole point is „only“ TPN and I cannot see your face.

    Are you feeling OK? Your voice sounds really shaken like you’re upset n about to cry. I hope that’s. Of the case. I’m on TPN and a morphine pump. I now wear this huge wound pouch to cover my stoma and a fistula. My room looks like a hospital supply closet. Michelle from Warren

    You are still so amazing, Sara! I can hear in your voice how bad you feel, yet you still make the effort to post this much-needed info on to others! Hope you feel better soon! Much love, my fellow Crohnie! ❤️

    You really should make more videos. Maybe vlogs. It might make you some good money, you’re a good talker. ( you can talk to people who dont have any chronic desase. Ive been following you for years, although ive only ever been in a hospital when i was born) i wish you all the best, you are cool!:)

    I did this for 15 months thanks to the ‘Crohn’s Weight loss plan’ lol. Had a Hickman Catheter, so I had 2 lines/lumens. Every night for 10 hours. Fun times lol. Got my line out last November ’16. Glad those times are behind me. The TPN claimed my gallbladder, so that was no fun. Traded my line, colon, and gallbladder for an ileostomy.

    Nice video. Good to see some light shed on us chronically ill folks. All the best from Pittsburgh.

    Just wanted to thank you for putting all this out there I too have crohn’s and have been fighting with it since I was 18yrs old n now am 45yrs old I’ve had my lg colon removed and have been on n off tpn too many times to count but it seems things have changed cause when I was last on it I had to have the iv pole with the big pump n couldn’t leave the house or hospital. I recently found your channel and can so relate with everything you’ve gone thru and again just thank you for everything every video and tell all of the things you’ve gone thru, sometimes like you’ve said we feel alone in this and I’m sorry you had to go thru it all but it also helps to know im/your not alone so again thank you!
