I am doing pretty well.  Colitis is hardly noticeable, sticking to gf diet, taking naps a couple of times a day because I am on summer vacation for another few weeks.  I've had lots of family company visiting Texas and the air conditioning is making life enjoyable. 
How is everyone doing?
Presently on: 600 mg. Remicade every 5 weeks
                   Venofer infusion every 5 weeks
                   B12 every 5 weeks              
                   12 Asacol daily
                   Zofran as needed
Dealing with Colitis since 2003, Gastro-Paresis, Reflux, IBS, GERD and Gluten and Dairy Intolerance and last but certainly not least - Arthritis.  Am officially a senior citizen - how lovely :P

Hi Nor_TX....I'm not doing very well, unfortunately. My Lyme disease is really a serious problem right now. I should say that I would be GF even if I did not have celiac disease because of the Lyme. Many Lymies follow a low-carb GF diet because it seems to be the best way to go for this disease.

I'm struggling with the side effects of the many months of antibiotic therapy I've undergone for the Lyme disease, including possible MRSA and C. diff infections! sad

I really have not had much trouble sticking to the GF diet anymore. It's become second nature to me. We moved recently and have already found a new gluten-free pizza place and a Thai restaurant that delivers (most Thai food is naturally gluten free, as long as you avoid dumplings and recipes with soy sauce!).

I'm glad to hear that you're doing well!
