I'm thrilled to be alive and able to exercise again. Last year I almost died due to being malnourished from having Crohn's Disease for 27 years. I fought hard to get better and after TWO surgeries, I'm on the road to recovery.

I struggle each day with having the energy, will and determination to get myself fit and eat the right foods. I have to get injections in order to absorb Vitamin B12 and take many vitamins throughout the day so that I won't become malnourished again. I am on 6mp which is a form of chemotherapy, it suppresses the immune system so I won't have as many flare-ups.

I absolutely love my husband and three sons. I LOVE to cook, bake, read, crochet, garden and take long walks with my dogs. Unfortunately, one of my sons is a drug addict and is no longer living with me.

I love meeting new people and would love to offer encouragement to others and receive support back.

    ¤**¤A Christmas Blessing¤**¤
    God bless the master of your house,
    The mistress also,
    And all the little children
    That round the table go;

    And all your kin and kinfolk,
    That dwell both far and near;
    I wish you a Merry Christmas
    And a Happy New Year
    Jesus is the reason for the season!
    Wishing you a Blessed Christmas
    filled with joy, love, & laughter...

    Hi again, just saw your comment! Thanks for the input and advice. I do take the rx strength of D and the b12 injection, I also don't absorb Calcium, get low on magnesium iron, protein and potassium! I feel best when I can get this stuff IV but can't seem to do that unless I'm in the hospital. My GI in Richmond, VA is a board certified and published Crohn's specialist. He's really excellent, and he's told me stuff to tell my doctors here that I didn't know. I wasn't diagnosed with CD when I had the by-pass, the CD happened 5 years later. I read somewhere that this is happening to more and more by-pass patients but they haven't figured out the relationship yet. I understand that I am really pretty old for a newly diagnosed patient. I'm so sorry you had such a bad experience last year. I keep the thought of the possibility of these things in the back of my mind, but I know that I won't have the many years of wear and abuse on my bowels. One time my age may be a plus!
    I'll certainly be in touch with you with any questions! Thanks.

    Thanks for adding me as a friend! I look forward to getting to know you! My baby sister lives near you, in Hemet (I think I spelled that right) and my sweet step mom is in Canyon Lake. Small world, isn't it!
