Congrats on finding yourself duder, it must be such and awesomely liberating feeling.

Also I am sorry you were recently diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. I've had it since 2009 and all I can say is, no matter how shitty it will get (I'm sure you know since you got to experience the wonderful symptoms it has to offer) it gets better with time. Just make sure you have a GI doctor that you are absolutely happy with, and once things are under control, it's pretty smooth sailing especially when you can start feeling and recognizing a flare up is on the horizon. Also finding out what foods you can't eat anymore can be tough, but in the long run, get's way easier. I had to give up pizza. I fucking love pizza, but it would completely destroy me. No more pizza.

If you don't mind me asking what kinda treatment plan did they put you on for it? For me it was previously Humira, which is super expensive, and unfortunately stopped working for me recently, so we tried Remicade. That put me into anaphylactic shock so that was no fun. Right now we are just trying to figure out what will work for me and it seems like Cimzia is the next step, so until then, I'm just stuck on a super high dose of Prednisone which is awful awful stuff and I hope you never have to rely on it like I do.

Also I know talking about butt stuff can be a little tough for some people, but after five years with my Crohn's I've learned to throw all shame out the window. Specifics are what have kept me from undergoing extensive surgery when a really bad flare up would start poking it's ugly head out. Be up front about everything no matter how small it is, and hopefully you'll never have to deal with a flare up as bad as your first one.

Sorry if I strayed a little off topic.


This seems fitting for the vibes I'm picking up from this thread too. You guys always make me smile.

Bought this on a whim to try and impress my new girlfriend. Not quite sure how the logic worked out on that one.

With Crohn's I tend to get sick a lot. When I'm at my absolute worst, I'm pretty much dead to the world. All sensory input generally just sucks.

When I can handle sitting on the couch, I want to do the most mindless thing possible, binge on Pawn Stars.

There are moments where I'm feeling fairly human, so I watch all of Back to the Future starting with the second one, followed by both Ghostbusters and Wayne's World.

Once I've ran out of that I just watch a bunch of documentaries about the 20's, or whatever has a bunch of stuff in black and white.

When I was young I was all about Pokemon Blue. I can't remember how many times I would beat it, clear the save, and do it again. I had a ton of Gameboy games, but man, that was the one.

More recently though, I'd have to say Rockband. Hundreds of hours were spent pissing off my roommate below me. It was wonderful.

Oh yeah and Guitar Hero 2. Every day after work I'd go to my buddy's place and play into the night. At that time I was working at a pizza place, so as long as I kept him fed, his PS2 was basically mine.
