This is a seriously dumb question. I can't talk to my doc (dude may answer me in two months unless I tell them its an emergency and it isn't) but I have a serious question. What is my level of Crohns status? By YOUR standards, thoughts, knowledge, wisdom? Moderate, low, high? What?
What is remission really? I think its a "special" word like faith or liberty. They're concepts that are incredibly impossible to explain to someone who has no idea of what they are but we know what they are on a basic level. I mean this by saying, if you were explaining to a barely English speaking person in English slang.
Also, what are your thoughts on the word Remission? What makes you categorize your disease and what do you categorize it as?
thanks for your thoughts.
