yeah sad smhair shocked
I've finally gotten brave enough to start my PhD program.  These emoticons pretty much tell you the emotions I going thru as the date gets closer.  Now, I'm starting to have  symptoms and am concerned that the stress may send me back into full flare.  Prayers are always appreciated.
God Bless

Sending postive thoughts and prayers your way. Don't let the anticipatory anxiety get in the way of your dreams. You can do it!!

Good luck there, buddy!
Right when I was finishing my Master's thesis, I got my first abscess.
I almost decided to not finish on time because I didn't want to lose my health care.
I recommend meditation and alot of adult learning breaks!
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
