I get the cramps sometimes if I eat the wrong thing(meat or GMO's). If I catch a cold it gets worse. I'm not sure what it really is that I have. It could be that it is Crohn's, the doctors suspect that is what it is. No tests have ever been conclusive for me. I had several polyps in my colon removed years ago when I had my first bad flare. I had everything going wrong all at once. Abscess, fistuals, (five I think),several hemi's and to top it off several fissures. I was heavily doped up, so some of it is a blur in my mind. No fun at all.Thanks buddy's yeah that was my dream, but just stopped working at it. So now I try an encourage everyone to stick with what they love to do. Hey cmack bro I have a question you have IBD and I know it's different from crohns but how much different? You still get the cramps, and have to run to the bathroom right. Does it cause polyps in the colon to...
That's so cool! I'd love to see some of your art. c: I'm studying animation. :lol2:Yes I do, but I let something's slip through the cracks that I liked. I used to be a very good cartoonist and animator but now since I haven't done it in like four years plus it's hard you know. My avatar for this site was the last cartoon sketch I did bro..So don't stop what you like doing, it's hard to get it back.
:hug: Always here for you too.I will post some of my animation full body cartoons today CP. Just got to get them out of my sketch book. I think you will enjoy animation art. Keep up with your studies, and don't give up no matter how hard it gets. Your friend crohn's4ever..
They are they are so cool and not afraid of you at all....which was a problem when I tried to get them off my cedar siding which was weird they were banging on since it's new.GI Jane,
Don't you think those pileated woodpeckers look prehistoric? Almost like a baby pterodactyl. LOL We have them around here every day. So cool looking!
I'm happy for you bud. That's great news! Keep it up, hopefully you will keep getting better and better. I think you are getting to be back on the right track. I'm proud of you for getting over your fear of eating. That is a tough thing to overcome. Good on you bro! :ysmile:Had a GI appointment today everything is going fine he was very happy about all of my progress from the time I was in the ER.. he took me off 6-MP and put on Imuran 100 mg a day..
I wasn't awake for mine which I had last month. I alway tell them make sure to give me enough to not wake me up since I did once. So the last few times they have done awesome keeping me asleep.Ugh..... I'm getting ready for a plethora of blood work this coming Monday before my remicade infusion......I finally signed up for my doctor's on line patient portal and can now see all my results in one place! I can also track individual blood results, and have noticed a few things have been flagged since June of last year....I get blood done every four months. My right hip has really been bothering me, if I sit for any length of time it really starts to ache! Oh yeah, I have an upper scope on thursday, haven't had one in over 20 years, am hoping I'm not awake for it!
I have been fighting the wasps hummm.....grrrrThat's not very nice of them! There must be wasps or carpenter ants in there somewhere.
They usually only do that if there are bugs to be had. I took my pesticide dispensers license if you need any tips. I hope they leave the siding alone.
Looks like it is...after multiple phone calls, I found out that my Remicade is not being billed under my hospital benefit instead of my medical benefit.I am sorry, Lisa. Hopefully, it gets straightened out.

Hi I'm sorry to hear abt your work and family. We are hear for u always u can ask questions,just vent, or whatever helps. Julieit's hard finding people out there around us who understands what it's like if they aren't dealing with it themselves. We got you:dusty: My father has had Crohn's for decades now. I got diagnosed with Crohn's 3 years ago. You'd think my mother who is familiar with Crohn's now would recognize that she can't compare what works for me to what works for him. Though she's seen the sickness and all the gross things associated with it--she herself has a hard time understanding and accepting what is.
oh my I so agree I got dressed brushed my hair and put on lipgloss you would think they thought I was cured. Just happened to have a tiny bit of energy to do it. Wish they understoodThanks for writing julieMy family is like oh you're looking better today...hoping I'll agree. I do sometimes to just give them hope. When all I really did was find the strength to get our of my pajamas and take a shower lol.
