Hey all! I haven't been on in a long time and just wanted to let you all know I am doing well.  My Crohns is under control w/ diet and medication.  I am very busy with work and enjoying it.  In the past I posted frequently even when I was well but now I have a lot less time for that.  I still think about all of you and recommend this site to everyone I meet with Crohns!  I hope all is well and I will try to check in more often.

It's lovely to hear from you, Fitzy, and I'm glad work is going well.

It's terrific, too, to know that you don't really need HW these days. I'm really glad life is working out for you.

Fitzy, I just thought of you the other day (I needed a lawyer), and was wondering how you were doing. Glad to hear things are ok!

Glad you are doing well. Don't let them overwork you. ;) I can say that because I'm on mat leave and have 0 briefs to file.
