Found this article via @CrohnsNoMoFoundation on Twitter. Very interesting read.
Q:Remicade is the best thing that's ever happened to me! It's like I don't even have crohns anymore (except a little the week before my infusion)! Don't worry at all, i hope it works for u like it does for me :)
Thank you so much! I’m a little apprehensive but I’m going to stay on the positive side. I’m glad it worked for you too. Here’s hoping it’ll work for me too.
I need to figure out a way to make my immune system as strong as a spartan.
This is pretty awesome! Repost from @marypryor
Thanks everyone for all of the Remicade recommendations!
Remicade (part 9000)
So…I’m starting Remicade next week. I have feelings about it but I have no idea how to really express them. I’m more just “ok that’s cool, hope it works so I can be even more awesome and fight evil doers.” That’s where I am with it. What I’m not looking forward to is the whole immunosuppressant stuff. Like being careful around people with colds and stuff. I don’t know. We’ll see. I may expand on this later but as of right now, I’m drawing a blank. Feel free to give any words of wisdom if you have any. As always,
Hey guys, here is a pretty cool site to check out to understand your symptoms better. I’ll also add it to the blog in case anyone forgets the site after checking out this link. I hope you all are having a great Independence Day! If you’re not from the states, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend just the same. New doctors update coming soon also.
Q:The UK press has been reporting that there's been a 300% increase in cases of IBD because of junk food & antibiotics. The reports are inaccurate, misleading, & harmful to IBD sufferers. I responded here on my page. If you can spare a moment or two, any sharing of my post would be massively appreciated (Tumblr reblogging, linking, Facebook sharing etc). It would also be great if you could sign the petition linked in the post. Thank you so much :) Keep up the good work! Xx
I’ve only read a little about this but I think it’s ridiculous for these claims to be made so matter of factly by the media. This is a prime example as to why awareness is important.
A really cool campaign to bring awareness to IBD. I’ll be doing it, will you?
