Starting on REMICADE probably within the next mo.
For some reason I'm finding sun makes me feel really good, so I get out in as much as we get it. And I'll go get books on these diets. I wish I could move more tropical, but that would mean my whole family and my husband is the breadwinner in the family and so he needs his job.
I just have a question, I notice that a lot of people have anxiety diagnosis with their Crohn's, is that something the same doctor dx'd at the same time, or did everyone also go to a different doctor for that diagnosis? Just curious.
THIS is what I am wondering about! I have been thinking that maybe living someplace warm would help overall - I love living in the NorthEast but definitely don't get enough sunshine. I wonder if people who live in warm places who have Crohn's have less flares? I am debating maybe moving someplace for a year if I can incorporate a career change and location change it might work!
BTW, when I tried to quote your post it would only let me write in this box, which is why I changed the text color.
I'm sure I can't have a stressful job ever again, although I'm a stay at home mom and that's stressful or living off one income, but it's what I want to be doing! Yes, my aunt has crohn's pretty bad and it does worry me about thyroid, or low blood sugar or Crohn's and what have you about being able to travel places, but my aunt goes on Alaskan cruises, she's went 2 or 3x, so it can be done! Since there are buffets, she can prob pick and choose what to eat and eat slowly, but she loves them and has a good time and I'm glad she gets out!
