first of all, I want to say that I am simply overwhelmed by all the kindness you guys have shown since I first came clean about my UC diagnosis. I am so humbled and so grateful to have friends like you...you honestly have been more caring and more compassionate than some of my own family members, and for that I am eternally grateful. I especially want to say thanks to Lunar-L
, aeharding fledermauskid
, and Katia711
for mailing me such lovely cards (and to the IDOJers and tumblrites who sent me letters as well). And a HUGE, massive, jaw-dropped thank you to rufiangel
for their absurdly
I have no words to express how appreciative I am.
Secondly, an update - I'm doing better. I'm off the prednisone (finally), and the double-dose mesalamine seems to be keeping my symptoms under control. I was able to switch insurance companies, and now at least I won't starve to death trying to pay for my medication
I've had to cut back on my hours at work, but I'm still employed part-time and am still taking commissions on the side, so that's good I guess. Things are definitely
better than they were this time last month. Thanks to all y'all for sticking with me and comforting me in my time of need!
