Hi Know the feeling of sitting and sitting. What about your meds what are you on and why aren't they helping? We all need lap tops at least it would give us something to do but I am worried as to what kind of post we would be reading(smile) .Why doesn't that man of yours travel up to see you or are you better off when alone on those days? Wow that trip sounded nice maybe pred' would hold you when going away for a bit but then there would be the weaning.If you feel you don't have a life maybe your meds aren't working gail

I feel like I can't make any kind of plans anymore. I will be feeling better than I have in a longtime, then make plans, and I get sicker than a dog. Never fails. So nope, your not alone.

hi gail the meds are working dont get me wrong its just that my immune systems always low and im prone to everything thats going around now .he does not travel up to be with me simply because i tell him not to because when im ill i just want to die peacefully i cant be bothered with anyone.
i was on pred for well over a year 20mg i only started weaning myself off last year before i began the methotrexate injections my meds do work if they were not working i would of been in hospital long before nowthe last time i was admitted was november 06 but i agree you cant plan ahead my cousins got fibromyalgia as well i symthise having both ive little reason to complain take care

I am sorry that you are not feeling well.I wished that there was something I could do to make you feel better.


I hope a hug will help.As to thye bathroom and PJ's yes I have seen times that was all I was wearing was PJ's because I never left the house unless I had a doctors appointment.I think that most of us Crohnies at one point or another has thought about putting a TV in the bathroom.
