Hi Karen, Thank you for the welcome. I was just getting on here to change that website that I posted as it is .org not .com I actually got it from this HealingWell.com website on a post under the Ulcerative Colitis tab. I am not offended in the least but I think any place we can go for support is a bonus.
Fuzzy, I find it very interesting about your melanoma. First let me say I am so sorry to hear about that added to your Crohns. I didn't mention it in my first post but my daughter who has Crohns also had malignant melanoma last October. She had a big chunk of her face cut out (like she didn't have enough to deal with) she was cut from her eye to her chin. She is 39 years old.
citymouse...a bit too coincidental if you ask me as only 1 to 2% of people are diagnosed w/ this particular eye cancer. There is NO warning about this for Remicade, only a warning about the possibility of developing Lymphoma. These are completely unrelated cancers. I would NOT have taken a drug if there was any possibility of losing my eyesight! Hope to hear from you on the other forum...trust me, you can't miss me!!!
P.S. I hope that you don't mind but under the Topic 'Depression' on C3Life, I mentioned your daughter & the fact that she developed this cancer. Of course, no names (including your username on this forum) or any info that could be related to you, personally, was written (not that I know alot about you). I do hope to learn more about your situation & some personal info, like your location. Hope to chat w/ you over there!
Hello Joe, Citymouse and fuzzy,
I am so glad to see the great sharing that has gone on here. You are all the best and I am a huge supporter of the IBD as my husband has Crohns/Colitis.
I know the depression he has gone through and our whole life change when he was dx at 29 years old. We have made it through and I know each of you will too. No one asks for Depression and just having others to talk to is a huge bonus, so keep on talking and know we care about each of you.
