Hi everybody, just checking how all of you are,  I haven't visited the forum in a long time, been too busy.  My Crohn's is doing ok I suppose, some ups and downs, but ok.  I've been so stressed with so many things lately, work, kids, dog, husband, lack of free time for myself.  I'm dissapointed that my older daughter who is 14 is not doing so great at school, she is at the pick of her puberty and she has the whole package: slamming doors, yelling, denial, full in love with her boyfriend, doubt for everything, laughing and crying at the same time, talking back, you know the story. Trying to be calm to deal with this.  My youngest one is 10 so she is still a young girl playing with her ponnies, polly pockets etc (thank God!).
Anyway, hope all of you are doing fine, and I send you big hugs from Greece!

Nice to see you here again, Christina.

Do you feel that the stress is having any effect on your symptoms?

Oh my gosh, I was just thinking about you yestersday. I was listening to the news and they were talking about the economic crisis in Greece, and I thought "I wonder how athensgirl" is doing, we haven't heard from her in awhile" And poof there you are:)

I had three daughters, all adults and grown now, I do not envy the stage your daughter is at. Sad thing is I remember being like that too:) Good news is though they eventually grow out of it, but not after adding more gray hairs to your head. LOL

Its good to hear from you again, don't be such a stranger.
