Day 21 of the #chronicallyinspiringchallenge | Favorite Food
If this were Facebook and I was dating food my relationship status would say “it’s complicated”. I have always been a foodie and growing up a core part of our vacations was chasing the best culinary experiences of that geographical area possible and that’s a theme I incorporated into my adult life especially when I was traveling as a contract safety professional. Having a colostomy has made eating a challenge for me as I struggle to regulate my output and maintain a diet of things that don’t send my to the emergency room with blockages. Most of my diet consists of bananas, avocados and meal replacement shakes but my absolute favorite food is smoked or barbecued meat. It’s been tough adjusting to my new normal when it comes to food but if push comes to shove and I feel the need to eat an entire rack of ribs like I did on Christmas Eve I know the staff at Iron County Medical Center is always there to keep Creech functioning properly. Side note: This picture was taken during the construction of the University of Minnesota’s Microbiology building after I promised my employees I would kiss the pig if they worked 10,000 manhours without incident.
