Karendee I am so sorry about your Dad. I lost my Dad suddenly when I was 19. Its been many years now, but I still miss him everyday. Just remember he will live forever in your heart.
So glad to hear that you are enjoying the new job. We have really missed you around here. Has the joint pain gotten any better?
You know maybe you should approach that co-worker that has Crohns and say that you overheard the voicemail because your boss had it on speaker. Just quietly let her know, "Hey I understand how you feel, I too have Crohns". I think it might be a comfort to her to have someone else who really understands what she is going thru. I have a co-worker who has Crohns and we talk alot. He's a lucky one though, he is only 23 right now, and he has mild Crohns like I used to. He keeps his Crohns under control with just Pentasa. Eats anything he wants. I keep mine under control with just Asacol, but I also have to really carefully watch my diet, and have horrible joint problems. I always tell him, he's me 25 years ago. LOL
So glad to hear from you again, don't be such a stranger.
