Swole wrote on social media about her recent struggles with the disease and how the COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on her treatment:
This past year has been filled with ups and a lot of downs. After my bout with pneumonia early last year, I was informed that resuming my medicine for Crohn’s would result in death given the COVID-19 circumstances. Seeing as how the biologic I was on shuts down my immune system and acts as such resuming my medicine was not an option. I was doing alright self-managing until the flare ups started in the fall.
As some of you may not know Crohn’s attacks the body as a whole so on top of my intestines issues different body parts would lock up and become incapable of bending at the joints. Some days I could barely walk and that took a toll on me emotionally and mentally. Living with this disease may seem like a thorn and it is but it also shows me that His grace is sufficient and no matter what happens I will smile because I am more than a conqueror. I am Swole and that mentality/faith will carry me through it all.
I ask that you bare with me, I’m getting the treatments that I need and my journey to complete healing is underway. Thank you for your love and thoughtful messages, I appreciate them and you! Much love to everyone, be safe! #Chronies
Tony Khan noted during the post-Revolution media scrum that Swole had been out of action due to the disease. Swole last wrestled on the edition of AEW Dark that aired on January 7, but did appear on the special Saturday edition of AEW Dark that aired last weekend. She cut a promo saying that she was the number one ranked woman before the Women’s title eliminator tournament and wanted a shot at the champion.
