WOW... Let's just say today is the new year for me! The first five months have not been well and the last few weeks have been even more not well. My neice graduates today and it just reminds me of new beginnings! I'm SO proud of her and it takes me back to a simpler time in my life...
Since I've totally failed all my "New Year" resolutions... I'm starting MY New Year today!
GREAT JOB to everyone who has kept up on their goals!
Thanks ivy... I needed this today!
great post Ivy!
Good attitude pb4!! I also try not to dwell to much on the past.
2007 was a bad year for me so so far 2008 seems great! I almost can't believe it is June!
My current struggle is with some macrocytosis (sp?) I had some blood tests to see if my b12 is low and next I may get b12 injections. I was upset at first cause it seems everything is happening to me sometimes....then I Remembered it could be much worse than this!!!
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort (take zofran for nausea now)
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma
Also on Prilosec 2x a day for reflux.
Well June is winter in Australia (as you already know Ivy) and it is now raining quite heavy here in Sydney - its filled our two water tanks and topped up our pool too Mind you my husband swears I brought the rain due to washing my car (with the last dregs of the water tank) the day before the rain started!
Health - wise what can I say - after my resection in September I am now virtually painfree, but not in remission. Still cant get under 10mg of pred without flaring and then having to up it again and then taper down AGAIN only to up it AGAIN - vicious circle. I am seeing Gastro on Friday and I know she will push for Remicade, me - I am pushing for a bone density test, its been two years since my last one and after 5 long years on Pred I want to know the damage done now. At least my AS hasnt flared this year - must be the MTX working!
I feel quite lucky when I read on here what some people are going through with this DD, so I always look on the bright side and think - it could be worse.
Please let us know how you are going Ivy - this was a great thread to catch up on.
Take care everyone
