Hi Friends,
I was all prepared to get to my computer this morning and post a new topic just to VENT!  I'm so frustrated with all these crazy symptoms that I could just scream!  Sometimes you just get sick of being sick, you know??
Anyway, I went online to send an ecard to my brother, which I don't do often - but I'm missing him and wanted a fun way to say hello.  Instead I ran into this hilarious ecard that I just had to share with you all!  I had to send it to myself to get the link though.  You'll need your volume up and, if you are at work, perhaps some headphones :)

Haha, hope it brings some cheer, or at least a few laughs to your day too.

Suffered with symptoms for 12 years, dx Crohn's-Colitis 11/2007.  Taking Asacol, Omeprazol, Rowasa, Bentyl. Flaring off and on and trying to avoid steriods.  Visited a naturopath (aka angel), got a vitamin B injection and have started taking NF Formula's "RF Plus" with every meal.  Seems to be helping.
