I haven't been on here in awhile, I don't know whether to jump for joy or off the roof. You see I just found out I've been approved for medicaid but I had to set an appt with Social Security to apply for disability. well I did that right away and I know it's a tough process to get approved. I had already had an exam from a Dr that SS sent me to two weeks ago. It's all so mysterous because the stories of waiting years depends on a lot of things. From what I am hearing I may be in luck (.45 shooter is typing with crossed fingers) I had been doing pretty well since my last hospitilization but today I had a flareup and I'm afraid to go to sleep. Wish me good luck and put in a good word for me if you chat with your higher power anytime soon...Say Bye Spanky

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully everything will go smoothly. Hope you get feeling better soon too.
Living with Crohns for 1 year. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful little girls.
One blessing that came with my Crohns: I thank God for each day that I can get out of bed and take care of my girls and my home.

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
