Hello All,
Well, it's officially been 1 year since I've been diagnosed.  If any of you remember, I was super sick for almost 2 years and then was admitted to the hospital and was diagnosed after a 6 day stay.  I have done pretty well over the last year.  I had a minor flare up in July but it's back under control.  I am hoping to start a family this year as I am doing very well health wise.  Just wanted to check in and say hello and let everyone know I am doing well.  Thank you to all of you for your support over the last year!
Diagnosed with crohn's in January 2008! 
Pentasa 1000 mg 4 times a day
Was on topamax for migraines...off now to try to get pregnant
On Nexium every other day, trying to wean off!
Off of entocort! 
I am 27 years old and have been married for 3 years.  My husband and I will be trying to get pregnant soon...waiting for the entocort to get out of my system!
