We all confront challenges in our lives, and some of them are more difficult than others. While we can’t control everything that comes our way, we can take solace in the fact that most of the time, we are happy, loved, and healthy. But what happens when your own body betrays you and you can’t count on health to create your happiness anymore? Is it still possible to find a smile when everything feels like it’s out of your control?

Well, that’s exactly what happened to a woman named Krystal Miller, and she’s proven that it’s possible to transcend the stress your body might foist upon you and live a normal, happy life anyways. Diagnosed with an incurable disease at a young age, Miller has been trying to redefine her new normal ever since. Her story is inspiring, and the message she has for those going through the same thing is absolutely amazing.

Krystal Miller is like any other 32-year-old: She’s a wife, mom, and friend.

But she also deals with something that most of us couldn’t, a disease that is up front and center each and every day of her life.

Krystal Miller is like any other 32-year-old: She's a wife, mom, and friend.

At 15, Krystal was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.

The disease is incurable, and attacks the functionality of the intestines and stomach. It causes all kinds of issues, most of which are bathroom-related and no fun to deal with.

At 15, Krystal was diagnosed with Crohn's disease.

Before she was diagnosed, Krystal just assumed she had regular bathroom problems, running there at least six times an hour.

“When I first got diagnosed, I was really uncomfortable. If someone went to the bathroom after me I wanted to cry because I was so embarrassed.”

That’s when she began to cut herself off from the world. Then, an even worse diagnosis came to light.

In some severe cases of Crohn’s, a large part of the intestine is removed and a permanent colostomy bag is affixed to the body.

At this point, Krystal had a revelation.

Realizing there was no way to hide the disease, she decided she just wasn’t going to try. She began calling herself “Bag Lady Mama,” and sharing her tribulations on social media.

She shares pictures like this with her followers.

Krystal documents the ups and downs of her life with Crohn’s, as well as the everyday moments that are just slightly different than everyone else’s.

Her husband has been a major support throughout the entire ordeal.

Krystal says he loves her for who she is, and that her disease doesn’t factor into his feelings for her.

Her husband has been a major support throughout the entire ordeal.

She wants her daily life with Crohn’s to show just how rich life can be despite of it.

“No one sees the that we deal with everyday. We’re allowed to be angry. It’s not always easy, but that’s okay.”

Most importantly, Krystal wants other women with Crohn’s to understand that the disease, the colostomy bag, and all the other negative effects don’t have to define you.

“We can still be sexy. There will be bad days. But those are the times when we have to get back up and keep going. Because the good days are worth it.”

    My aunt has chrome disease and luckily she is able to go to the bathroom. But I know the pain she endures and has had pieces of her intestines cut out a few times. Good Luck to you mama.
