I always felt that my Crohn's was worse during my periods.
Even though my fistula was diagnosed as a skin to rectum fistula, I'm wondering if there might be another one that is rectovaginal or whether it's creating more internal problems because there's no fluid from the fistula except when I'm on my period, and then it is every day.
I've got Crohn's disease, and a family history of lyme disease and mental problems. If I did have kids, they would probably get some of these things. How could I explain to them that I'm the reason they're here and the reason they're suffering? Doesn't that seem selfish?
Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
My HMO refused the Remicade and now I could be going on Lialda or sulfa? blah
