Favorite Bathrooms

  • Home Sweet Home
  • When I'm @ someones house: the one farthest away from the crowd
  • @ the Mall: Macy's (as public bathrooms go this one is very nice)
  • If I can't make it to Macy's...JC Penney's will have to do (they recently remodeled so it is better than it was. I don't know why they didn't ask for my input???)
  • Monterey Bay Fish Grotto in Monroeville has a great bathroom
  • Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, My fav place to vacation, their rooms have the most wonderful bathrooms

LIMBO….this is where my health insurance has placed me until the first business day of January 2010…. Yes LIMBO is where I must wait while they change to a new pharmaceuticals company. But I am due to have my horrible, burning, stinging injection (that should be shipped to me today) on Wednesday January 6th??? Well you are in LIMBO so you will need to have your Dr. call back on the first business day of January 2010 (which is Monday January 4th) with the script and we should be able to overnight the medication to you. Happy New Year to you too!!!

Billy Connolly - Colonoscopy

I've found you oh blog of mine...

First let me just say that I do not live with crohns disease it lives with me.

This blog is a way for me to vent about crohns to whomever cares to listen and along the way hopefully it will be helpful to someone out there. Maybe you are a family member or friend who loves me and this will help you understand what I go through. Maybe you have crohns disease and you just happened to stumble upon this blog and it helps you cope a little better knowing someone else is dealing with the same issues and understands. Whoever you are I also hope along the way that I can make you laugh about my/our disease because after all laughter is the best medicine.

Now you may have noticed that I actually started this blog in September of 2008. I posted some information about crohns disease and side effects and so on and planned to add my personal story later. I signed out and then promptly forgot where I created this blog and how to get back to it. Then as I so often do with many things I forgot that I even started a blog (I blame these lapses in memory on the large amounts of prescription drugs and anesthesia that I have been exposed to over the past 20+ years). Then recently I set up an account to view my beautiful nieces blog and a few weeks later I signed in with my other email address by mistake (yes I have been able to keep track of more than one email address) and tada there was my crohns blog. So now that I have it bookmarked I should be able to keep finding my blog after I finish this and future posts hahaha. Till then….love, peace, and where is the nearest bathroom :)
