I Thought of you this morning on my way to work, listening to my ipod – there was a very interesting podcast I downloaded – from Radio National, called ‘Psychology of Illness’ – I think it was released 15 May – if you have access to a podcast system, definitely give it a listen, it was extremely interesting….

I hope you are doing well,

Fantastic! Thanks heaps, Phoebe.

Can you remember what show it was on? I'm thinking maybe "All in the Mind"?

How are you (and your fistula), Phoebe?

Here we go, let me know if the link doesn’t work (might have to copy/paste it?):

I thought it was SO interesting and straight to the point too, only 24 minutes (perfect for my bus ride)

I am doing well Ivy! Work-life is not so great – I get very frustrated at not being able to use my mind as much as I’d like to – so I am going back to university in July to do my honours degree, I will do it part-time over 2 years, and work 4 days a week while I study. I am going to write my dissertation/research on something crohn’s/health related, I’m very excited and nervous about starting, it is going to be a LOT of work but hopefully very rewarding. My GI professor is very supportive of this too (and a great resource), and I will try and fit in time to involve myself with ACCAQ too!

My abscess/fistula is a glorious little scar now. I realised the post-surgery wound was so horrific because it had been ‘laid open’ with a cutting seton. Now it is a little pinched scar, only noticeable to me (nobody looks there!). it looks crazy as all hell back there, but it doesn’t bother me, as long as its not filled with nasty evil sepsis.

I am on 8-weekly remi infusions, and my fantastic GI, who I am SO grateful for, is going to do a scope in July/August, with balloon dilation because of my stricture (in large bowel I believe) – trying to stick to a SCD too, for good measure.

Are you doing well?

I'll try and hyperlink:[url]
