Remicade : Day 1583

Nothing too exciting about this dose of juice.  Although, I'm finding more and more that I'm "needing" the infusion as it gets closer simply because I get run down and tired, not to mention the abscesses and fissures appearing more now. I'm starting to have problems with my scalp now, but need to go to dermatologist in a few weeks to find out whats going on there.  Is it the Remicade?  Is it my age? Is it "just because"?  Who knows anymore.  After 28 years with Crohns, I can never tell and just deal with whatever comes my way with a smile on my face.....sometimes.
I keep trying to tell myself that it could be worse and there are millions of people in the world who are having a way tougher time than me.

Remembrance Day

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month we all (or should) pause and remember and give thanks to the men and women that have served our countries and have not returned to their families.  In the 28 years of living with the pain, surgeries, discomfort, odd looks, emergency room visits, worked missed because of Crohn's, I haven't forgotten what those before me sacrificed.
And to say that, what I go through is nothing compared to what they did.

I have nothing to complain about.
