Heya kickboxer, sorry not from Toronto, I'm from Alberta though...I'm pretty sure there are some from Toronto here at the UC forum and even at the crohns forum, which you can feel free to visit as well now with you having crohns.

I live in markham so i guess technically its just outside of toronto..

pb4, I have to ask you.. Is it really like people say it is over there in terms of needing work. I hear somedays, for example, a tim hortons will be closed with a sign posted saying "sorry not enough staff to open today".. I also heard that a McDonalds pays about 13$ an hour?? I think if i wasn't in school i'd be pretty tempted to go check it out.

I not in Toronto, but in the Kingston area (Gananoque actually). 

 
 
Dx:  2006
 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.

Yup, it's pretty much true, but where I'm at McDonalds pays 10.00/hr full time and a little less for part time wage.

The cost of living is crazy, you couldn't afford rent on 10.00/hr out here, 800.00 for a bedroom in a house and it goes up from there.

Not to mention the cost of everything.
