    Crohns dating site?

    So my marriage ended last year - mainly due to my Ex's complete and utter nonacceptance of this disease. Now I am left wishing to find a girlfriend but do not feel comfortable dating after what I have been through. Although I must admit I would feel a whole lot better if I could find a woman...

    Joe, have you heard of any Michigan dispensaries selling FECO via mail-order? If I were to drive to Michigan how much of a supply could I purchase and how long would it last? THANKS

    10 days on Pred, only worse

    More bleeding, no relief.

    What should I choose, Pred, Humira....

    Well its time for me to step up to the big time, nothing works anymore, mmj did nothing for me...I cannot go on like this anymore, pain/bleeding/misery, do not even want to leave the house anymore. So my biggest beef with Humira is it seems everyone get some king of respiratory side effect -...

    Well two weeks of vaping mmj and still bleeding throughout each day. Mt last hope is I realized I switched to generic Cymbalta in January - could this be the inspiration behind this miserable flare? I am going back to brand name Cymbalta on Monday night. if that doesn't work - what's next?

    Could a switch to generic Cymbalta cause a flare?

    Been flaring ridiculously since mid-December. It let up a bit after re-starting smoking, but it was back to worse by mid0 January with no break since. Even using mmj hasn't helped. One thing I realized - I switched to generic Cymbalta in early January - could this have been a contributing factor?

    May I ask what was your next stage of treatment?

    Whoa, seems like you need a whole lot of weed (a lot more than the NJ monthly allowance) to make a tiny bit of oil. Well I finally got my card. Thinking of trying vaping. I have been so stressed over the prospect of starting Humira, I think I am going to pass for now. Perhaps I'll just ask...

    Sooo, after a glimmer of hope, I must resign to the fact that basically I am phucked.

    So then who is producing it and selling it as Rick Simpson Cannabis oil at MM Dispensaries? How do you know you are getting quality cannabis oil if its not branded?

    Anyone know what the deal is with buyricksimpsonoil.com? They ask for your name and phone number - for what? Is Rick Simpson actually behind this site or is it a fraud?

    But, may I ask, from where can you buy Rick Simpson Oil? I am on the verge of going on Humira, but I am also getting a card - which appears to be useless because I cannot purchase the Simpson Oil? Thanks

    Blood blood and more blood

    Every morning starts off with a burst of blood out of the wazoo, then several bloody poops, a few not so bloody and several trips of just blood and blood chunks. Just filled the toilet with a whole lot of ..you guessed it - blood. Wnet to a new GI last week and told him of this and he said -...
