Lately, I've felt more that I've merely been existing in my life instead of living it. My Crohn's isn't too bad, but with all the problems in my back and hips, I have been miserable. I rarely go out anymore, as walking is so painful. The only really comfortable thing is lying flat on my back. Because of the Crohn's, I can't take the NSAIDs that the doctor would normally recommend. I've had 2 cortisone injections that instead of helping seem to have made things worse. I just am bummed that I don't get to do the things I normally enjoy.
