Bad day

Just a bad day. The big D is running my life today and I am at the end of my rope. I had to cx 4 patients today. I hate doing that to my little guys. So much pain today not from the Crohn's directly but my joints! OY! I remember my grandmother telling me "I feel like a used dishrag." Well, I think I know what she was trying to tell me. Okay, pity party complete.

Word, MAD. I'm joining your little party. I'm having a pretty awful day, too. Everything sucks. Depressed as F***. :grumpy:

Hope you feel better!

Aw guys, I'm sorry. It seems like when Crohn's picks a bad day, the whole body really does - I get basically every possible symptom when I'm feeling blue - no coincidence of course.
At least there's always tomorrow, okay? Thinking of you both!
- Diagnosed September 2010 at age 17
- Past treatment with the top drugs, enough of that!
- Achieved remission with 100% liquid diet of Ensure, organic smoothies and specific diet (see link below).

Aahh... the ole catch 22.
Stress and depression causing symptoms?
Or bad symptoms causing stress and depression?
Uncle Crohn's has got us coming and going.

Ohh, what's the difference...
it's tough either way.

Sorry to hear of your struggles, been on a rocky road myself of late. shucks

Not necessarily what we wanna hear on a difficult day,
but I'll toss it out there, anyway:

'I felt bad because I had no shoes..... then I saw someone with no feet'
Hard to find when I'm down, but perspective is everything!
Fingers crossed for better days,
hang in there,

ps May I ask what a 'cx' is? shrug
currently 'enjoying' Metho, Remi gave me Lupus, Humira pens now weekly - jury still out?
whew, just a little Prednisone?

I'm starting to think Crohn's isn't as much fun as they made it sound in the brochure?

Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind - Dr. Seuss

A hard road is better than no road.

getting knocked down is nothing.
bouncing back is everything.

in the end, only kindness matters...

Sorry, sometimes I forget to speak in real words not acronyms!
CX= cancel
DX= diagnose
HX= history

Just thought I would throw the others in there as you may see those crop up on this site from time to time.

As you can tell, I work in the medical field. NO I am not a doctor or nurse!

Thanks for listening everyone. A bit better today. I actually did see some of my patient's this morning. That always perks me up!
