Hello, I have been reading with interest for sometime now, you all seem so informative and helpfull.
I was diagnosed in '03 with crohn's.
I was in denial for too long, but now I accept that it is what it is. I cannot/will not take pred anymore because of horrible side effects. My doctor put me on 3 mg. Entocort every other day. I've been on that for months, and I just don't feel much better. Major fatigue, pain, D all day long. I can't figure out what I can't have food wise....as sometimes it's okay one day, then makes me sick the next. It's so confusing.
I used to be out and about and very active with business, family, etc....now, I feel so isolated and helpless. Never know if its a good day.....or a bad day. I feel so bad for all the younger people that have this.
