Crohn's Disease, Stress and Losing your job!

Yeah, so how is this for a recipe for a Crohn's Disease Flare Up:
Holidays + Financial Issues + Ending Stem Cell Study Due to Ineffectiveness + Losing your job 3 days before Christmas. So yeah, I will be again testing the theory of stress causing a Crohn's Flair up!

Awesome, yes my stress level just rose again. I just lost my job 3 days before Christmas. Anyways, should give me some more time to write some informative and entertaining posts for my Crohn's Disease Blog! Update coming soon. Merry Chistmas to you all. God bless and say healthy.

Oh, and if anyone needs any website work or online marketing, let me know and I can send you a portfolio or we can chat!

Some folks have all the luck :-). Seriously, good luck on your job search. Stress will kill you, just try to take it easy over the holidays. Chicken soup is great for a flare and have you thought about homemade yogurt--"Breaking the Vicious Cycle" by Elaine Gottschall? I know there's two thoughts here so if you hate the idea of an alternate diet--cool. Just thought I'd mention it.

Sorry to hear of your job loss. Lots of people I know are in the same boat, if that's any consolation. I hope you get back on your feet quickly.

How is your medical insurance? Did you get COBRA coverage? Obviously that's a huge concern for Chronies.

Sorry to hear about the job and the flare up. Don't know which one is worse. Health and no job, or sick and a job you can't go to.....

Anyhows, rest if you can, and fingers crossed the roids calm things down.
