Well, I made it another year living with Crohn's. I'm not here nearly as much as I used to be, mainly because, luckily, I'm feeling the best I have since my diagnosis. I've been on Humira since September, when I started my freshman year at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and I've been in remission since then. School is going wonderfully; I'm thinking about a double major in political science and cultural studies. Other than that, not much has changed, but I realized late today that this was, in fact, my two year anniversary of my diagnosis. :-)
