My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

What a difference a week makes

Monday, May 14, 2012
I went to the doctor's office on May 3rd to start my humira injections.  Four stings in my stomach later, which didn't hurt much, and I was ready to see how my life would change.  

So far so good.  Its hard to explain how I'm feeling. I haven't had any cramps. Which is awesome.  Bathroom time is a lot better.  Instead feeling a punch in my stomach when it's time to go, I'm feeling a slight urge, and things are going a little easier.  I have more energy.  I'm hungry. Since starting humira, I've gained 12 pounds.

I'm happy that I don't have to take any other medicines while taking the injection.  I take another this Thursday.  We will see how it goes.
