So I know this had to be edited because it contained a link to a fundraising website but I saw the link on the UC board before it was edited and thought the story behind it was neat and ok to share. Basically Mike McCready has crohns and created a page with the CCFA fundraising site to help raise money for a cure. He is a spokesperson for the CCFA marathon. Its nice to have a celebrity speaking out about the disease.
26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 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 also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
