Oh....you guys...even going to the troulbe to look at the dictionary..feeling the love now!
Its so nice to come on and see what people are writing when you post something, even if you think its a rediculous question because its something I thought as I was writing it, geeze, what a stupid question to put to everyone. But its nice to hear that relief periods do exist. Pheobe, only been dx with crohns for approx 3 weeks, so in the infancy of the disease, however the GI said he suspects I had it probable for about
10. I know my health declined rapidly (and what seemed to be all of a sudden) in Jan 09. On and off work, lethargic, loss of apetite and about
20kgs weight loss. Crashed again badly in Nov 09, picked up slightl and down like a bucket in Feb 2010. Unable to work since then. Started pred in April with dx and waiting for the next instalment of meds from the GI in approx 2 weeks. Still feel awful, and thoughts of doom and gloom setting in rapidly. Family only new to this. Told my mother today I felt really bloated and very uncomfortable and she said "well thats unusual". Could hardly believe it - she came to the 1st GI visit with me and I have given her websites and booklets about
the disease but I dont think she really gets how critical it can be. Dont get me wrong - shes adorable and very supportive, but leads a busy life herself and I dont think she fully understands yet. God, neither do I , but I guess when you feel like this - how can you not. thanks for all your posts. You all deserve the best in life for what you have been and are going thru every day.
