How to Cope with Change, Part 2: It Can Be a Rollercoaster Ride

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

My oldest daughter was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at seven years old. Her diagnosis sparked a knowledge-gaining frenzy for me. I gained a strong interest in diet-related health. With the knowledge, came the desire to change. With the desire to change, came the moans and groans of getting it started. Once started, came the reality that change is not easy. The journey comes with highs and lows, successes and failures. It's a rollercoaster ride. Our oldest daughter is now ten years old. Her attitude about how we eat can be all over the place at times. At times, she's happy about it and takes pride in it. Other times, she's frustrated and crying about it. All I can say to that is she's ten years old. If it wasn't our diet that she was all over the place about, it would be something else. Nonetheless, aside from her age, we all ride some version of waves when we're making changes.
