Happy New Years Chronies

Happy New Years to all. It's been a while and by some miracle my health has been pretty good. Hopefully I don't ruin it by celebrating too much tonight. Swedish meatballs, beer, 7-layer dip, Patron, Hypnotiq and Red Bull, Sausages....ugh. Recipe for Crohn's Disease Disaster anyone?

Anyhow, happy new year to you all. I am greatful for all of the support from the Crohn's Community and am glad to be able to provide information, experiences, and a good poop story now and then!

I googled Crohns and somehow found your blog. It has given me a bit of humor in the entire subject.
I am 20 and was diagnosed with Crohns 2 weeks ago on a break from college. I came home with stomach pain and was admitted to the hospital for 6 days and diagnosed with this lovely new disease. What a vacation. :-) Right now I am on Levaquin and Flagyl for the infection and my doctor is hoping to start me on the Humira pen sometime next month. I read about your night sweats and they have me in a bit of a panic. Clearly, they could be worse side effects, I just hated being in the hospital with the chills and night sweats - and would prefer to do without them.
Again, thank you for creating this blog and having fun with it. Theres nothing I love more than reading other peoples stories and knowing that they are normal people like everyone else.
Hope you have a happy new year.

Lauren - Your Story is so similar to mine..happened during college and I ended up taking finals from a hospital bed and not walking...Everything I hear stears me away from the pen and to the Humira injections. Good luck with it all and thansk for the feedback!
