Hey everyone. I'm a newbie to the forum, but definately not a newbie to Crohn's. I'm 26 and was diagnosed at 18 after a really bad flare. Got it under control and managed nearly 8 years of remission. Back on Prednisone right now because I graduated from grad school/moved/switched doctors and was beginning to become symptomatic again. So I asked to be put on Pred during the switch to hopefully keep me out of a flare, if it is a flare.

I've been lurking around here for a few weeks and I'm really excited to finally join. You guys all seem so awesome and it's nice not to have go through this disease alone. :) yeah
Diagnosed 2002.

75mg Imuran, 750mg Balsalazide 3x day, Tapering Pred.

Maybe flaring...maybe not?
