I also find that prayer has helped me in troubled times. Also i pray n give thanks for the good times. I pray for others more often than myself, i would feel selfish if i didnt. Although i suffer myself, im more concerned for others sufferings than my own, it breaks my heart to hear what people go through.πŸ’žπŸ’–πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

☺ thanks Ron . I try my best to be a good n kind person. There a too few of them in this world these days. Thats why i love it here as we are of like mind. πŸ’•
 
I sympathize with you also. I mean I had the same problems with you But My sister Sugar was 800 she was in a diabetic coma. I was working at a hospital where we couldn't have any errors. My two adopted daughters ran away from the school hadn't been seen all day into the night Which cause me stress Which made me hurt my Self physically My mental state was crazy And what got me through all that at the time That I was losing my job also. I damaged a piece of equipment that was very expensive So what got me through was prayer I pray for strength that I All the time all day long for a wisdom for guidance and I believe that's what it It makes a difference.
Love it.
 
I am sorry. I am typing this from my Kindle. I wish there was one test only that you had to take and that would help the doctor to determine what was going on with yoiu and be able to determine a course of action.
 
I was in the bathroom just a short time ago. I let out some gssd but hadn't gone to the bathroom. My wife, because of the smell, asked me if I was okay.
 
I was just back on Entocort. Without insurance, it would cost over a thousand dollars. With insurance, it is 138 dollars. Is thrre any wayyo drive the cost down?
 
Hey ron i wont be able to help you but i hope you get some answers, this thread shows post of 12/10/2015 and only one for today this is weird i cant see any other previous post of thos month. Had fever again ughhh now i feel scratching in my throat
 
Hope you aren't coming down with something. I just drank an Ensure and shortly afterwards went to the bathroom. I wish my appointment with the specialist was sooner.
 
I also hope not its been like this since last night i havent had the flu last year. Me to ron it feels like an eternity to see him so many things we need to get sorted. Thats not nice to even have ensure and having to go to the bathroom im so sorry ron i hope they can get you sorted and feeling better

Hi christi. I dont know why it was changed. They dont tell you just that it has πŸ˜•. Iv been only on painkillers for joints n omeprzole for stomach acid for nearly 2years now. Which is good in 1way. Oh n questran for bile salts malabsorbtion for 3/4mths.
To me we should be seen n scaned or something to see whats going on inside every 6mths . So that things dont creep up on us without us knowing then causing severe issues. I know that cost to the health system makes it hard to do but come on, in the worse case our lives could be at risk when all said n done 😨
sorry you are having it rough christi,its not fair this is so awkward a disease to deal with. Im ok realy bar the joints n shouldnt be moaning..but im not just moaing on my own behalf, im moaning for us all. Help n support should just be better for us...
love n hugs hope your tummy calms down hun. Thanks for your support christi πŸ’‹πŸ’ž
 
Yes mandy i agree even 6months are to long for me last time i were at doc they said they will see me again in 3months , in that 3 months i already got a flair? I really cant see why we have to deal with this horrible disease and for life ughhh. Mandy but if your not on any maintenance meds for the crohns they do have to see you coz how else will they know whats going on eish i am so sorry and they should be able to do something for your joints so you can feel better. Mandy your welcome i understand what your going through. Hugs and support :Flower:

Cheers Christi n Ron . I do appreciate you two so much. Well yes every 3mths would be best ideally. But we dont live in an ideal world.. darn shame that. I guess if iv gone this long 7mths since last app 2 more hopefuly wont make much odds. my gp kinda dissmissed the joint pain but going to see what gi says hope to get more help out of him.
Love n best wishes to you my friends. Hope you both improve soonest possible. πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’‹πŸ’‹

You what Ron i get that. I can eat pretty much anything but have no appetite as such n often cant be bothered to eat. I do because i have to have some fuel so i can do a days work. Hugs πŸ’•
 
I know what you mean, Ron. I started out with all sorts of ideas that diet was going to cure my disease or at least control it, but I'm losing all my illusions now. I've started thinking the same as you, that life would be easier if there was no need to eat, because there's not much pleasure left in it and a lot of fear. I was so fed up of wondering what to eat on Sunday that I ate nothing but cream crackers all day, not the most balanced diet but one of the few things that don't cause obvious trouble. Unfortunately I do still have a very healthy appetite, just not the healthy guts to go with it!

My wife was thinking there has to some diet but I don't know. Hopefully , the specialist will have some idea.
 
A friend took mevout to get new shoes which was nice. Afterwards we had to keep walking around until we found a place that had food I could eat. Because iy takes me a while to go to the bathroom sometimes I didn't feel comfortable going in public.

Hi, Mandy
Just seen this...
Have you got a Radar key? You can get them from Amazon for about a fiver... if you're registered disabled you can get them without paying VAT. There are cheaper ones but mine broke, so get a sturdy one. The radar toilets at the Arndale centre have always had one or two vacant when I've been there, for example. I can also get into the radar toilets at big train stations... and you don't have to pay.

Hi thanks.ye iv had a radar key for 4yrs . Got it as soon as i was dxd. Nurse told me to get one. I was meaning others queuing while waiting for me lol πŸ˜†
 
I have trouble sleeping at night , the axciety pill i take at night helps also for sleeping. I took it 16:30 its now 01:47 and im still awake
 
These antibiotics for my pg wounds are kicking my butt they make me go all the time and make me change my bag more often then normal my only break is for about 2 hours every morning but getting about 2 hours of sleep every other day is not ideal.
 
I was up until around 4 because of this disease. My dog wants to go out but I haven't been able to but the disease has slowed me down.
 
My loading dose of Humira ease supposed to be delivered today. All I got was the sharps container. The company is supposed to let me know tomorrow what they are going to do.
 
I will rather do it in my leg than my stomach it could hurt so much, thanks ron im trying to learn as much as i can for when i might switch to biologic
