Hello, I'm New


Hello, I'm new here so thought I'd quickly tell you a wee bit about me.
I was diagnosed with Crohns in Dec 2002 after the usual long wait. Luckly it is mild to moderate and generally behaves itself. The last 6-8 months have been a bit of a pain as I keep flaring with in a month of finishing pred. I am on Asacol and Azathioprine and currently waiting on a colonoscopy but in good British NHS style that has been 4 months already and still no word!
I live in Bristol, Uk with my husband and my dog although I am originally from just outside Edinburgh.
So, well, hello everyone.

Hello JoJo!

Thanks for sharing that with us. I am sorry to hear that the last while has been a bit harder, but hopefully things start calming down soon.

Hope to see you around the board more often .

I'm originally from Bo'ness but lived in various areas of Edinburgh and then Winchburgh before moving down here 18months ago.
I'm sure I will see you around the site, it seems a friendly place.

Bo'ness, Winchburgh - I know EXACTLY where you are! Were you a visitor to the glorious establishment that is the Tally Ho Hotel??! I bet not! I used to stay in Philpstoun just outside Linlithgow, before i moved into Edinburgh.

You'll certainly see me kicking around Jo, so no doubt hear from you soon. x
