seeing as i was already for my stone 10 years ago, i have thought off and on about what i would want.. ive seen some serious ones, some funny ones and some downright morbid ones... but to this day i think i will go with more funny than serious cause i aint never been too serious..  i know its been on lots of cartoons but i like  "i told you i was sick!"

Wow Randy, that's a helluva question, but I think I would stick with your "see I told I was sick" standard. For crohns
patients it seems so apt. OR "Here Lays Victoria, she busted her gut most of her life"...

If I were to have a headstone (which I won't cuz I'm getting cremated)....there would be 2 options;

1. She came, she saw, she left!

2. Same sh1t, different pile (cuz in my life I had crohn's, IBS and lactose intolerance)


:)
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
My HMO refused the Remicade and now I could be going on Lialda or sulfa? blah

Even though I have IBD, I still hope it can read "She outlived all her enemies."

Good point Randy....now I just have to decide which blurb to go with, the ones I mentioned above and "was here for a good time, not a long time...had neither" (presuming I die at a young age LOL) or "thank goodness the nightmare is finally over!" or "FINALLY, I'M CURED!"

"And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make" is what I really want. OR
"And in the end the s**t you take is equal to the s**t you make" which really describes
life with IBD.

Yep , I'd be a soggy bottom boy Randy. Down here we dont ,burrie em, in da ground no more. Above ground vaults because when it floods the coffins pop up out of the ground and float away and its hard to know who went where,,if they find them at all. Perhaps the fire is the way to go, but I may see the flames sooner than that. Anyway, sniper in a can ????? been there , done that...

Sniper....temperature is always a problem for me...always cold. I am getting cremated but I know my husband would write a note that says..."Erin is finally warm!"

Actually I thought a lot about this when I was so sick in the beginning. At age 24 I decided my stone would read "She laughed, she danced, she loved". At age 44...I still think it fits.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Back in Fall 2008 this question was actually facing me for real. But the light-heartedness of it didn't escape me. I'd want an engraving or something of a snowmobile blasting through a snow-drift!

I'm not pulling legs Lyn, after hurricanes Lilly, Rita , and Katrena there were coffins out in the marshes and in peoples yards and it was a difficult task to find them and ID the ones that could be IDed and bury them back where they came from. Some were never found and others had no serial numbers on them so the remains had to be DNA tested. Some of them, we will never know where they go . As for me, dont care if they throw my old bones in the bayou . That part of me aint worth a crap no how. I have a feeling the part of me that doesn't go with the bones is going to end up shovlen coal in a very very warm place for the guy with the pointy tail and the horns.
