In my own words:

I have been trying to Subscribe to this site for over a year pay pal is not working for me. I contacted support they told me to email pay pal, been there done that. So, to the friends I have met on here I cannot send any messages or do anything, to the new messages my apologies. Terry, I hope you are doing well, I miss our chats.

I am 61 years young and have been looking for a site like this forever. Thrilled to have found this, and to meet others for support, laughs, and hopefully some life long friendships.
i was diagnosed with Crohns over 30 years ago, in 1988 i had surgery. For over 30 years i have been living with an ileostomy, i actually wouldnt change anything if i could. I'm healthier, no meds, and living life as best i can, i didn't have a choice really i was dying...went down to 60 pounds.

I would like to meet anyone who is level headed, no games, definitely no drama, that's a huge no no for me. Someone fun who can laugh and enjoy life with. I'm a little old school, i believe in respect, honesty, and commitment. if thats you i welcome you with open arms, if that's not you...please dont waste my time as well as your own.

As we all know living with Crohns is not fun, but manageable. Its still nice to chat with people that are living with a Colostomy/Ileostomy. I look forward to meeting anyone for friendship, a chat, whatever the case may be. Hope you're all feeling well, and good luck with your new found friends and dating life.

I wanted to blog about prednisone, the best drug ever for flare ups if you have UC or Crohns, the deadliest drug ever, long term side effects. I was on this drug for close to 8 years, the weight it puts on is incredible depending on your dosage of course. I was always a slender teen and when my doct…

Yes they do in some cases, most people that i know will not take it because its a steroid. I was not aware either, the doctors dont tell you anything about long term effects.

If it makes u feel any better , they still prescribe prednisolone, I was on it for 3 years on and off and suffered with anxiety and depression, I was not aware of any of the side effects untill I stopped the meds and went on for biological options.....
