Yes, I read your profile. You've really been coping with much challenge.
I'm glad for you that your Crohn's Disease is remiss. It is a horribly-devastating experience, is it not? Years ago I had a boyfriend who suffered with it- and the operative word is suffer.
If you have looked at my profile, you'll see that I seem like a quite un-lucky woman. Indeed I have had my share of misfortune, but in actuality, I have a very sweet life and consider myself to be blessed with a beautiful life.
I just perused the site and I do like it for the same reasons as most.
Mags, Annette, I, and a few others here are also RNs. It seems ironic, for me, since my entire career has been in neurology. Now I'm a neuro patient.
Mags, I like that you have posted your pic. I guess I'm a very visual person as it is so much easier to keep comments straight when there is a face to go with the name. You're very pretty, too and I have appreciated your comments in discussions.
