Just adding my welcome to HealingWell, you already know how valuable this place is. A support group here 24/7. That is PRICELESS.
Anyway, sorry you have to be here but welcome!
just wanted to send you a welcome too! Sorry about the tiredness factor. Yep it's from BOTH the meds and the crohn's. Just make sure to try to rest because you'll feel better sooner. I was diagnosed in August and fought and fought for my old life until mid Oct. I FINALLY feel a bit better but it's cause I sleep 10 hours a day and plan my outings. You will notice that you may lose a lot of friends because they refuse to understand your new life. And then you will notice that your relationship with others will grow stronger.
yeah I can empathize know about people doubly not understanding about you don't being able to make it to soirees--I love it. I cancelled on someone last minute a couple of weeks ago because of the tum tum not cooperating and then they emailed me and asked me if I could just bring my own food or not eat for this coming friday. I replied saying that I can control WHAT I eat but I can't control my symptoms or how I will feel so if I don't feel well again the day before, I'll have to cancel again. DUH.
