I haven't been around for awhile but I still think of you guys often. This DD can do so much damage in so many ways I can only stand by the saying "what doesn't kill us makes us stronger." This has been one hell of a ride.
I just want to offer a little hope to everyone. As bad as things were for me ( those of you who went thru it with me I'm sure remember) Life is sooooo much better. I am med free and have been for over a year. Went from 36 pills a day to 0. I did the cade, the humira the roids and all the other crohnie meds. Since off the pred I was even able to get rid of the BP meds.
I am still tossing around the idea of having my colostomy reversed. The surgeon thinks I'm foolish to even think about it. But he isn't the one living with it either. After 28 years of marriage I am "dating" and I gotta tell you, the "I have a colostomy" conversation is a killer!
I am a grandma now! It's a boy and he is very handsome!
I wish you all the best!
Life isn't like a bowl of cherries, it's more like a jar of Jalapenos... What you do today, might burn your "butt" tomorrrow!
