Damo - I am a huge MacGyver and A-Team fan! Also, I love CSI Vegas and Miami (though I always get a laugh out of the wide angle shots of David Caruso and his sunglasses).
kb5 - I love the wii we just got a CSI game for it, it's actually really fun!
about my UC, was dx'd 8 yrs ago, did well up until last Sept/Oct when I quit Asacol cold turkey b/c I am hypersensitive to 5ASA's and that gave me a kidney disease (I made the connection not the Doc's!). Now the prednisone for my kidney disease is making me pre-diabetic. I know I have to take meds but in lieu of everything that is going on, I find I want to take as minimal meds as possible once I get all this stuff cleared up (prev. I thought hey I'm not feeling well.....take a pill). It's a real struggle to stay sane on the pred but I try every day to stay positive.
I'm on azathioprine and pred and hope and pray the aza is working but wont know till I can taper the pred. This really scares me.
about me personally. I have a wonderful husband our 2 year anniversary is this weekend, we got married in Aruba, it was awesome! I have 3 cats - all 3 are lovable nutjobs. I do sales and mktg in the US for a global scientific instrumentation company. I like what I do but still don't know what I want to be when, "I grow up". I am going to the Domincan in almost 2 months w/my husband to be pampered and go snorkeling.
For fun I like to get together with friends and family, sing karaoke (I do a great Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran), play board games, play the wii and playstation 2 'rock band' Enjoy going out for coktails, mai tai's, Magners Cider and mojito's. I love the NE Patriots (still can't think of the superbowl w/out wincing) and watching them play football. I work out but can't say I really 'enjoy' it.
I read a lot and like sci-fi/fantasy, mystery, chick books (sometimes) anything as long as it's a page turner - am into the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind right now on book 5 of 11. For TV I like CSI, Earl, The Office, Stargate Atlantis, Flash Gordon, Rock of Love (w/Bret Michaels, good trash TV!) and Cash Cab (on discovery).
Every day I tell myself it could be worse, keep your chin up, be positive, you will get better and make it the best I can.
