(((DOC2007))) So sorry to hear you are suffering so. I consider Pred a necessary evil. No one really likes to take it, but it does work to quiet flares down and usually works pretty quickly. Hope you get feeling better soon. Keep us posted on how you are feeling.

Hugs,

How I feel for you. I saw my daughter go through such pain like you're experiencing and it broke my heart so much. Let's pray for a cure for Crohn's. You be strong and before you know it, you will be back to your normal life again. Hang in there and God bless...

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well and that you're back on the Prednisone.  I think we all hate that stuff (I'm hoping to start reducing again soon).  I hope you get back to feeling better soon. Good luck.
