Well, as of today, it looks like I'm going backpacking this summer for 6 weeks with a friend of mine around south-east asia!! we're flying to bangkok, going to travel northern thailand and the islands, go to the full moon party..! go to cambodia and Vietnam..can't wait!!
HOWEVER.... (there's always one isn't there?!)
My crohn's. Am I insane to do this? I'm 22, have lots of energy but the crohn's..well it has a mind of its own! I had an emergency resection last summer. That was very serious, and it happened when I was in Madrid for a weekend. I've been fine for a while afterwards but I have been flaring lately and I think I'll have to go on Humira. But I think the Humira will work, for a while anyway, and if I be careful with what I eat/drink then I'll be okay.
Does anyone have any experience with backpacking with crohn's???
P.S. Forget about the crohn's, my family don't know yet and they're the ones who are going to KILL me!!! ;-)
