Oh this post made me cry today... Having a real crappy day.... thanks for this I feel better now. (I also forgot to take my Effexor and it is making me weepy)
I am thankful for my Hubby and my kids, they are so great to me.
I am thankful that I finally know what is wrong with me and can do something about it. It feels good to know I am not crazy...
I am thankful I have a good job, nice home, nice things and don't have to worry where my next meal will come from.
I am very thankful for HW, and all the Crohnies that post here. The last year would have been much harder if I did not have all of you. I doubt I would be in a new job thriving and also would have never had the courage to start Humira without all the info and support here!
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort Switching to Humira June 2008 will wean off Pentasa and Entocort
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma - Also on Prilosec for reflux.

Wow, what a thread. You know when it is so hard to hold on and wait for one more day... I am truly blessed. I have a great husband, who seems to be struggling right now with my DD, and two beautiful children. This week my mom and I hosted a family reunion. My mom has CD too and she did all the work. I am grateful to have family, but this was a challenging time. I am truly blessed to have a home and food to eat. My 11 month old daughter always smiles when she sees me. She doesn't care that I put on 70 lbs due to Pred. My son lays by me when I am sick, nearly everyday, and rubs my back. This disease is wearing, but it comes with unknown blessings. As I said I gained the 70 lbs. My mom has begged my dad for years to lose weight, and now he goes to the gym with me three times a week, two fatties bonding. I am truly tired, but so blessed. As I sat in church on Sunday, I realized how lucky I am to live where I do. I have family up the street. I would not have survived without my HW family either. I have learned so much and I am still learning. I come here for comfort and strengths and I leave daily with that ready to conquer another day. Thanks and I will always remember to count my blessings. I hope it is okay to quote one of my favorite verses from the Bible: Proverbs 3:4-5 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he will direct thy paths".
