I am glad you mentioned that. Jean, sonwriter had actually told me about
that awhile back and when I tried it..It def. helped a lot. A combo between the meds and the cold calmed it all down.It doesn't go away but it helps.
Jen, Well I have one who is almost 19, one almost 17, one almost 13, one who is 11, and an 8 year old. So I have some who should be leaving soon
I say it's never easy. On one hand my kids help but on the other they have their lives and are busy. My oldest just found out he has Chrohn's so, he has it rough. He also is in college, work's full time and takes classes to become a manager where he is at. Then he volunteer's at Ronald McDonald House 2x a week. My 16 year old doesn't have a license yet, because we felt his grades were not high enough to warrant him having the privilege to drive. He finally this last quarter got them up enough so then he will be a big help with the other's. Anyways(I digress) we all have struggles, mine no better or worse than anyones's. this disease just sucks all the way around. It's like taking a deck of cards(that being your life) and throwing it up in the air. I hope someday, for all of us, there is a cure or at least something that makes all of our lives easier. Take care, Heather
