haha. nice. i don't think it's the travel- i'm always going away- i was in Denver last week...i can never figure out what causes flares...i do know that stress of course is a factor, but that usually passes in a day or so if that's what is affecting my gut...i think my gut is just going downhill and surgery is in my near future-- which will be awesome bc our new health insurance through work is AWFUL! I will definitely hit the $12,000 out of pocket max in 2012- we're so screwed...my co went to one of those account based high deductible plans so the 1st $6,000 no matter what is mine to pay (on top of the $320 a month)...and i work for a huge co...so look out folks- if your ins doesn't look bad yet just wait...i think there are going to be a lot of medical bk's in the next few years (including me)...oh well time to pop a pain pill and try to get some sleep. night all.
