Hi all,
 
It's been close to two years, I think, since I've posted.  I've been dealing with severe depression and kind of "participating" in a further implosion of my life.  Not that I'm the only one, of course, but I just couldn't handle being online mentally and physically.  Physically because sitting at a computer and typing is quite painful (bad rotator cuffs).  And I'm sure no one could have stood my whining anyway.
 
I spent this time trying to treat my pain and depression with meds that finally turned on me and made it all worse and then I had to go through the horrendous process of getting off said meds.  That was the hard part!  Hoo boy!!!
 
But I finally have those offenders out of my system and am doing a bit better.  I still have depression and pain on top of this darn disease, but at least I'm not thinking about jumping off a parking deck on a daily basis anymore.
 
I've missed the support of this site as it's a lonely ride at times without fellow crohnnies. wink

Wow.... This must be a Veteran Member Return Day... //^_^\\'.... *Hugs* Anyway, I hope you feel all the way better soon...
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.

Thanks for the welcome backs, virtual hugs.  I needed them today; had a near sleepless night.
