Life Confuses Me

August 30, 2012

The vasculitis rheumatologist doesn’t think I have Behcet’s disease, because he believes that all of my extraintestinal symptoms can be explained by a complicated, severe case of Crohn’s. I am very grateful to not have a new disease with a whole new set of things to worry about, but I am also kind of disappointed that even though I do not have a colon anymore, Crohn’s is still attacking my body.

There is good news though. I was approved for Social Security disability for the horrible surgery complications I’ve been dealing with. This will hopefully take some of the financial burden away…

This is putting a strain on my relationship, and it’s killing me…

    I found your blog after googling about my nephew’s new otomy bag situation.

    I read the whole thing. I just wanted to say that I’m really hoping things are looking up for you and that your life gets back on track soon. You seem like a wonderful person.
