A bit better than I was... Thanks for asking... and sorry I haven't been here for a long time... *Been trying to recover from everything...*

I had surgery done September 1st to remove the masses from my right ovary... they also removed my right ovary and my right phillopian tube because they were badly infected. The mass was non-cancerous, thankfully. :)... Then... probably a week after, I started having some serous pain, so I went to the hospital.

Found out that the antibiotics I was taking for the infection had caused another infection (called C. diff) in my intestines... that, and the stress from the surgery, was aggravating my Crohn's disease. So, I had to put up with that for a while.

Then, I had a bladder infection, but they wouldn't put me on antibiotics because of the C. diff... Luckily, it cleared up on its own... or at least... it seemed to. I've been taking it easy for a while...

Lately, I've been having trouble eating because I feel sick to my stomach... also, I've been having some bad esophagus problems (not sure if its acid reflux, heartburn, or inflammation, or what)... I'm kinda worried because I've been losing weight. Last I checked, I was 120 pounds (I used to be 140). But I haven't been in any tummy pain... or bladder pain... So, that's good.

Unfortunately, I have to go back to college October 13th because if I don't finish at least one class I'll have to repay back my financial aid... and obviously, I can't do that... It'll be an easy class, though... Basic Computer Skills...

Also, my rheumatologist is thinking I probably have fibromyalgia... but... she's going to do some more tests on me...


I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Yeah... but so far, I've been holding up okay mood-wise. I get down every now and then, but I'm always able to pull myself back up. *Hugs*

It's good to be back on the forum. I missed all of you... :)
