I've decided I must say this to remind those of us that sometimes forget we have good days. I was talking to my sister in law and I started crying. I told her I don't want my babies to grow up remembering me being sick all of the time. She reminded me that I do have my good days as well. She is right. I just want to say I am thankful for my family and friends that I have even though they are not close to me. I am very thankful for this forum and my support system that I am slowly building. I am hoping that someday I can get my husband to understand what I am going through and what I may go through in the future. I may be sick but I have a wonderful healthy family that I look forward to waking up to each and everyday. I know they do love me very much even when i'm miserable and may have my doubts about the world. Remember to keep your chin up...theres always someone out there to support and love you.
Thanks for reminding me Wendy.. I love you! :-) yeah

Thats very true. I am so happy there there are others around even when they aren't close or to be visually seen to give us that extra boost or kick our butts back into gear.

Amanda,

Probably two of the cheapest IBD natural therapies are Attitude and Gratitude! I have to remind my Daughter sometimes too when she is IBD down in the dumps about all the good days she does have, all she has accomplished despite IBD, her wonderful travels, her wonderful friends who have stuck close in heart, a lovely boyfriend, wonderful Bosses and co-workers who have covered her butt during illness above and beyond the call of duty. She may hate the meds she has to take daily and the dreaded Remicade infusion every 8 weeks but for the most part they help keep her moving forward in life so she can enjoy many more adventures on the good days!!

I have said this before but it was probably years ago. When my daughter (who now has teenagers of her own) was a teenager, she told me that the reason she didn't do drugs or drink alcohol was that I was always available for her to talk to. I wonder if I would have been quite so available if I had been well. We never know what will make the biggest impression on our children. I felt like a "bad mother" because I couldn't go out and do things with her, but all she wanted was for me to be there. So be good to yourself and proud of what you do, not worried about what you don't.
Take care. Lois
