My son keeps a CD of a band called Social Distortion in the car and I have listened to it many times. There is a song on there called Angel's Wings that really just touches me and makes me feel like this disease is not gonna keep me down...
You say you're down on your luck
Hey baby it's a long, long way up
Hold back now, hold back your fears
You say you're really down and out
And you feel like there's no way out now
Let go now let go of your tears some more
How many times have you asked yourself?
Is this the hand of fate now that I've been dealt?
You're so disillusioned this can't be real
And you can't stand now the way you feel
I don't care about
what they say
I won't live or die that way
Tired of figuring out things on my own
Angel's wings won't you carry me home?
I triumphed in the face of adversity
And I became the man I never thought I'd be
And now my biggest challenge, a thing called love
I guess I'm not as tough as I thought I was
I turn this up and sing along...drives my son nuts!! LOL
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 14, have had minor flares throughout the years, but mostly kept in remission. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. Was on Pred. Dr. wants to try Humira...
Currently just take a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, and fish oil.
