Good morning Beeble and welcome to Healing Well,. Wow, you have alot on your plate!! I am so glad you found us, you have come to the right place. Yes, many of us on here know exactly what you are talking about. I live in Texas and we just finished up about 9 days of rain which is unusual for us at this time of year. Between the cool fronts and the rain, I know exactly what you are saying . It feel like someone beat the tar out of me lol. I do not need a wheelchair but from what you have described it must be very difficult for you trying to manage gettting around in the darn thing, I am so sorry about that.
I too am a crohnnie and can relate to the problems in that area as well. Ain't life just a ton of fun living with crohns. For the crohns I take Humira shots, Imuran, Entocort and Lialda. What are you taking to keep yours at bay? I take alot of Lomotil for the trots, 8 a day, thats the max. Knock on wood no strictures, just some fistulas and I had 12 inches of the small bowel removed and a resection done.
I hope you will hangout with us here at the CP forum. Do you visit the CD forum too? Keep us posted on how you are coming along.
