MDJunction to me

libit"I was alone and desperate with my disease when I found MDJunction. Finding so many great people that understood my illness and could relate the same feelings to me was a life saver. I now have many new friends here that help me out of my bad days and for that I am very THANKFUL!" (libit)

MDJunction testimonials
neitzke47 I was diagnosed with Crohn's in January of this year. I've gotten very little helpful information. Even the searches I've done online have had contradicting information. I see my doc in a couple of weeks but I feel like I have no control what-so-ever over this because of the lack of information I can find on line about the disease it's self and about how to eat to relieve the symptoms. I already have a number of chronic health problems and have been on S.S. Disability for around 7 years. Before that I was an R.N. I have some control over all of the other stuff but I don't know how to begin to get a handle on this. This feeling of total lack of control is starting to mess with my depression and that's not good.
3/29: Had a busy day Teusday between gooing back and forth forth between the hospital for urine drug testing before seeing the Pain Mmanagement Specialist, saw him, then back to the hospital for an x-ray of my right knee due to pain from a fall on the stairs almost a month ago, lab work done to see if my blood was too thick or thin (I'm on a blood thinner) then went to the billing department to pay a bill, then went home to rest before going back to the hospital to the cardiac clinic. I was so tired I ended up changing my appointment because I was just too tired to do anything else. Had an appoinment with the Nurse Practitioner on
wednesdday, and took a nap when I got home. I haven't done anything physical today but did reconcile my bank statement to my check book and that wore me out.
