I agree with PillPopper. And Janice.
I mostly stay at home, except for shopping trips (wash hands) and taking my husband lunch at his work (only 2mi away). Everyone he works with (les than a dozen people, half have children ranging from babies to teens) and if one of them are sick, they say hello to me and right away tell me to keep their distance because of them or their children not feeling well. My husband has come home sick, and I do not know HOW I've managed not to catch anything, but when he isn't feeling well, he is VERY concerned about me.
We use Clorox Wipes quite a bit; handles, door knobs, phones, steering wheels and such...
I really believe that because we are faithful and consistent with the disinfecting, that is the reason I've been able to remain so healthy while on immuno-suppressants.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. No improvement with Remicade. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returned after resuming 6MP. Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and had great results with IM injections. Nausea and symptoms returning with oral MTX. Switched back to IM injections and am slowly improving.
