Hi everybody!  I don't know if any of you remember me, but I used to post to the Crohn's forum all the time.  My real name is Tim, and I live in Indiana.  I have been dx'd with CD for 7 years now, with 1 resection.  I am currently having chronic abdominal pain and nausea.  They are getting tired of seeing me in the ER, but my new GI doc can't see me until July (supposedly).  The reason why I got a new GI is because my old GI did a colonoscopy without sedation (he could have done an EJ or something for an IV...I have bad veins) and he promised me that if I told him to stop any time during the procedure he would.  Well, needless to say I told him "stop" and he didn't.  So, I fired him.  I'm actually thinking about suing him.
 
Today is a very depressing day for me because I found out my ex-wife, who I love and miss dearly, is not engaged.  I talked to a friend about it, and she said something that will stick with me.  After all I've been through, I am still here.  Through CD, 3 marriages, foster care, drugs, rehab, mental illness, and homelessness I am still here.  God has brought me through all of this.
 
My advice to anyone who wants it is to realize that you are still here.  I know how bad this disease can get, but God is more powerful than this DD.

I'm still here after 35 years of an often difficult, lonely, and troubled existence, but that's down to me, not down to a 'God' who may or may not exist but if 'He' does exist shows absolutely no sign of any interest in human affairs. In my opinion.

Apologies in advance for any terseness. I just don't believe in giving God credit, or likewise condemning God, for the things that are down to us, or biology, or nature, or just plain random chance.

Welcome back to Healing Well at any rate. I don't remember you but I haven't been here for more than a few months.

Apologies accepted. I don't expect everyone to believe in God. You have just as much right to your opinion as I do to mine.

Thanks for the welcome!

Thank you for being gracious about it. (Hope that doesn't sound patronising; I certainly don't mean it to but it can be hard to get your intended tone across in print sometimes.)

And you're welcome :p

Hey ClassAction!  Good to meet you!  I'm a newbie here...just diagnosed last November.  I'm with you!  I look back at all that has happened in my life and realize the ONLY way I've made it this far is by the grace of God and his constant hand on my life.  I know that all will be okay in the future because I TRUST him!!!

Thanks everyone for your well wishes. I have had a bad day. I found out last night I forgot to take a quiz in one of my classes, so instead of an A I'll probably get a B. I know it's not the end of the world, but it was a silly mistake.
