LOL!! Now that I read through all the posts, can I bring a fruit cup? I'll still have a piece of pity, but I'll have it with vanilla ice cream please!! LOL!
You are all very great! I love my new friends!! Even in the worst, you have your sense of humor and that is the BEST medicine! Though it's not great for pain, especially if you're laughing too hard!! LOL!
I enjoy pity parties, because I feel the SAME way as all of you! I like to be able to get my frustrations out, though I haven't started on all of my problems, I think they are too much for anyone to handle!! LOL!
Tom, you are SO worried about making someone feel better, but by you posting, you did the best thing!! You care, and it shows, that's all anyone needs in the situation! You did good, my man!
Red, I'm SO sorry about your problems, I hope that you get some relief!! I wish you didn't have to think about removing your colon though! Wow! Is that the last option for you? I hope that there is something you could do, without having to go through all of that, but I'm sure you've researched and spoken to your doc about that. You will get through it! One day at a time! Just out of curiousity, I'm not very familiar with the condition, but have you tried probiotics? They are supposed to be good for intestinal health, replacing the good bacteria in your gut! They've worked a little for me, though my problem is constipation more so. But they are supposed to help rebuild the lining of the intestines by fighting off all of the bad things that eat away at it, and that in turn is supposed to keep toxins from leaving the bowel, and with less toxins in the body, the body gets healthier. Just a thought, like I said, I don't know much about the condition, but if you are interested in probiotics, I can tell you more too. I wish you the best of luck!
You and everyone are in my prayers! Good luck to you, and all!!
Keep that sense of humor, and stay positive!!
