on my Take Steps page for the Crohns and Colitis walk.  I can't post the link on here because it is obviously for fundraising.  But, I decided this year rather than my husband and I just walking for me I was going to list all the people I know w/ the disease and walk for them too.  I started asking people's permission and most requested that I not use their name *sigh*.  I do understand because my emails were going out to most of my school and 2 of the other students with IBD keep it quiet, unlike me.  So instead I put a general list of people such as, "former teacher", "coworker", "fellow student" etc.  My list ended up at 15!!!! And last but certaintly not least is my entire online support group!!! I didn't mention healingwell by name because I don't want people from my "regular" life trying to read my posts on here.  Granted my SN here is the same as it is for my email but if someone wants to find me that bad, have at it!  So just know that on May 31st I'll be walking for all of you!!!

26 Year old married female law student.  Diagnosed w/ CD 3 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD.  I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid.  For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn.  I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13.  I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium.  Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I alos take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
