Hey I figured I would mention this if any of you happen to live in or around NYC.  I've been looking for a support group for awhile now.  (Don't get me wrong, I love you guys, but it would be nice to have a support system in person!)  I haven't been able to find any near me, on Long Island, except through the Crohns and Colitis Foundation, but they charge you and their meetings were theme specific (couples, women (as in being a mother and a wife, yadah yadah) whereas I just wanted a general support group.
Anyways, somehow I discovered one through the website  It's a small group so far, but it's nice because the organizer tries to arrange monthly meet ups in Manhattan.  I might be going to one this Sunday.  If anyone wants more information let me know! :)
25 year old female, diagnosed with Crohn's in 2002 after being misdiagnosed with Lyme Disease for a year.  Have been on Prednisone, Asacol, Entocort, and Remicade in the past.
Currently on 100 50 mg of Mercaptopurine.  Just got put back on Asacol and Entocort.  I hate swallowing pills.  5 day hospital stay April '10.  Have to be put on 2 antibiotics and (cry) 40 35 30 mg of Prednisone.  Turning into a walking zombie with the lack of sleep (around 2 hours a night), but at least I've been super productive!
Debating going on Humira...need advice! :P
