I have never really written you but I have kept up with all the stuff you have been thru...and I think you are one tough
cookie without a doubt! I don't think of weak chump with anyone on here- especially you! You are always so positive and kind. I think its important to have people to "lean" on when you are not feeling your best. As long as you are thankful for others helping you and don't take advantage of it then I think its great!!! I bet Jessica feels "warm" inside being able to help you out. I know I enjoy it when I am able to help others! Hang in there- and Ill be praying for ya!
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
