And The Beat Goes On

Funny thing about Crohn's.  You just never know.  Hour by hour, day to day, week to week, month by month and year to year, you just never know.  You can wake up in the morning and everything is great, and then by lunch, you feel like crap.  And you know what?  There is absolutely NOTHING you can do about it.
Last January I was in hospital for....well...they never DID find out what was wrong.  Some sort of virus.  For a normal person, a few days in bed and they'd be fine.  A crohn's sufferer, hospital for a week.  But, having said all that, I felt great afterwards.  I gained weight, I couldn't stop eating and I had energy.
Now?  I feel worn out, tired, losing weight (140lbs at 5' 10"), I eat, but not as much, and the evergy level has just, well, gone. 
Why?  Who the f knows.  Is it the crohn's, stress from work....both.  Who know really.  I'm heading to the specialist in a few weeks to discuss Remicade and we'll go from there.

If I could bottle my weight loss, I'd be a billionare.  Except for the side affects of course.

I can't help you with the side effects of being a billionaire. Maybe if you called "Bill"..?
