Hi everyone,
 
Veteran Crohnie - new to the forum. Been reading many threads and trying to get to know everyone. Was wondering how many Canadians are on the site?
  • CD dx '86. Re-section '93. Dx Crohn's Colitis '98.
  • Participation in Remicade trials (fistulae) late 90's.
  • Manifestations of fissures, fistula, scleritis, polyarthralgia and erythema nodosum.
  • Presently on Imuran, Cipro, Flagyl and Remicade (2nd attempt - 10 yrs later). Possible serum sickness reaction to Remi after 2nd infusion - awaiting consult.

Hi....I'm in Beautiful British Columbia!  Victoria, to be exact!  Born & raised here, and I'll Never leave! 

 
I am a 41 year old female...  I was diagnosed with Crohns in 2002 after a year of pain and losing 50 pounds....which was the best part, now if only I could lose 20 more!
I am currently taking Prednisone, Imuran, Humira and Effexor (to keep me sane!)
Humira did take away my pain.....but it is not working as well as it used to..... and I gained about 15lbs in the first year after starting it!!
I have been off work for the last month due to my Crohn's getting worse.....I was barely getting through the day & did not have any energy left to take care of my family!!
I was just existing and not LIVING......!!!
In the last month I have also experienced a very bad bout of erythema nodosum & scleritis....
 
 Remember to Live, laugh & Love....
