The predictability of Crohns...

Aweee, the thing that is so predictable about Crohns is that it is sooooo unpredictable. Crunch time at the end of the school year and I am completely beyond exhausted to the point of feeling like I am swimming upstream. I am working on a grad class. The contractors will be here Monday for renovations. I received an assignment change for the next school year (a lot of us did...likes things moved around from time to time)...not a bad thing, but I was quite in my zone where I was. And now...I feel like I am starting a new flare. I have been off my Humira since the end of January due to all the issues I had, and the D gets insane at times as four BM a day is a pleasant day and ten to twelve is not unusual. The bleeding is on again. My joint pain and stiffness is driving me crazy. Flushed. And have I mentioned exhaustion???

I see my gastro next week. Almost three months since I saw him last. Sometimes I just get to the point of not wanting to bother them with the same ole' issues.

I still haven't seen my rheumy yet. The earliest I could get in was scheduled for tomorrow but with this as the last of the school year, timing was off. So it will be yet another five weeks before I can get that further evaluated for Lupus and AS.

Tired, hanging on, ready for a lazy day...

Hi there, I'm in a similar boat, going through a flare now, after I looked back on my records, this is the third year in a row that I have gotten a flare this exact same time. Ugh.

Vent away. It helps to get things off your chest. Sadly my family is not supportive at all, so this forum helps in a lot of ways. Btw you're not bothering your gastro, that's his job. Hope you feel better soon.
