Hi everybody, I hope you are all well, and I would like to have your opinions on two things:
1) Earthquakes: We have a a lot of earthquakes here in Greece, and this month things got worse. Every 5-6 days we are shaking. Now there are rumors of a big one coming soon, and although I realise that sometimes everybody is over-reacting, I am terrified. Needless to say it makes all my symptoms worse. I fall asleep at night and dream that my house is falling apart, and I cannot find the rest of my family. Then I spend the next half hour in the bathroom. What should I do to ease my fears? I can't live the rest of my life fearing of the worse.
2) Obstructions: I had a partial obstruction almost two years ago which landed me at the hospital, but since then I'm coping OK, meaning I feel better than I have in years, although I experience minor symptoms now and then. The thing is I am constantly afraid I will get another obstruction, although I don't have any sigs of it. Is it possible for people with Crohns to have only 1-2 episodes in their entire lives?
Thanks for listening (reading), and I hope to hear from you soon.
