I'm lucky because....
1) I didn't know I had Crohn's until my children were older and I didn't have little ones at home. They are now 26, 21, and 15.
2) I have a husband that will pitch in when I need him to.
3) I have a terrific job, that I can still do, with excellent health insurance and enough service (30 years) so if I have to I can retire.
