I think you are being a little hard on yourself. I know you put your whole self into your studies, so do the best you can and all will be okay. I agree it can't hurt to get back into see your GI, better to be safe than sorry. I never like to let Crohns issues go to long, just in case it is a flare, you can stop it before it gets worse. Although I think you just may have eaten the wrong thing. And maybe a visit to your therapist is called for too. So glad to hear from you again.
As for the Nikki issue, I think you need to scroll thru the messages, because we had quite a problem with Nikki/Garen. Sadly to say Celey, the whole story was a fake. And Nikki/Garen were one and the same. We have a post going that everyone has posted to (trust issues), to discuss how this affected everyone. You might want to read thru the messages to understand it all. We are all surviving this and trying to move forward.
