my name is kitty and i have crohns!

actually ....kittys not my real name-but i do have crohns!
*sigh*weeeeell....i have only had this wonderful disease for 18months-a mere drop in the universe compared to some of you-but i bet i beat most of you in the age stakes...
i'm 48..
yes-thats right-forty -blinkin-eight!!
old or what? dont answer that!
but last year i didnt think i was gonna be this old...i thought i had me chips-it took eight months for a diagnosis which time i'd nearly bought the farm, as they say.......but i am here to tell the tale-older(well,you know that!)not much wiser-'cept i know more about ibd! and definately grumpier-i mean-i was a grumpy soandso to start with but now?????
well....lets just say i am a weeny bit quicker to fly off the handle-on the upside-just sos you dont think i am a total aged monster-i do have a sharp sense of humour...gotta have one of those with you at all time-
going out?
toilet rolls(2 of)
baby wipes
sense of humour
i'm on azathioprine,prednisolone and chocolate....crohns has given me rheumatoid arthritis in all joints most of the time, bad at one time i nearly lost an in-'nearly went blind'-not just lost as in 'where is it?....its a real boon to have both eyeballs as an artist i find....
almost at the last chance saloon as regards a stoma-so-the future iwill be interesting-but at least i have one!wahey!
got a great forbearing husband,management-who does a great patient job of 'carrying me' when the going gets tough-nooooooo......not literally.

tho i am training him!

anyway-thats me!
