I don't know if you remember me, it has been so long since I've been here.
I've had several problems since I was last here. I had Crohn's surgery again, and I also had brain surgery a couple years ago. I had a tumor and the surgery went well, but I had short-term memory problems. It has gotten better, but I still have trouble. Thank goodness it didn't affect my long-term memory. I have also been in and out of the hospital the past two years with problems from Crohn's. I'm going to start a new medication soon called Cimzia. It is done by injections that I will give myself. I have the meds now, but decided to wait until after Christmas. It affects the immune system, so I want to wait.
I'm no longer working, which bums me. After my brain surgery, my Crohn's doctor didn't want me to work anymore because of problems with Crohn's and my bad memory. I was at my last job for 23 years, and I really didn't want to stop working. But, I know it has been better for me. I just really loved my job.
I hope you all are doing good. I think of you all often. Would love to see updates!
