I today want off my prednizone. But I must admit... I have had the week from hell with my Crohn's. I am struggling so hard with cramps and throwing up. We just got back from Father's day munch and I had to run in the house to loose my lunch to the toilet gods.
I can't tell if this is a predisone thing or a crohn's thing. I was scheduled for a colonoscopy this past wed. but ended up to sick and had to reschedule. I have been tapering off my pred. for over 5 months now. The last thing I want to do is to go back on it. My doctor mention remicade last time I saw him but I need to do some insurance checking. Because I think it is going to be to expensive for us.
ANyone got any thoughts on this? Especially you guy who mentioned going back on prednizone. What made you go back on it (symptoms)? Even though I don't want to go back on it..... when I am on it (side effects aside) I FEEL the best. And I hate that.

I choose joy... I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical... the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God. ~Max Lucado
