I'm not dead yet...

Sorry. Illness has really caught up with me. I'm about 2 weeks behind in schoolwork, basically locked in my apartment due to joint pain, and I can't even knit to keep my sanity (because of the sore fingers/wrists/elbows). Anyway, I'm sure that's not what anyone who still comes here, is here for!

Nothing much is new, although Sean has a great new job opporunity with GW, so hopefully he'll get it (he has a phone interview on the 26th).

I'd also like to thank Kimchi and miked for the well wishes :) Kimchi, they actually did check for celiac, which I don't have thank goodness. But they were so sure they scope me twice! They're 99% sure it's Crohn's at the moment, but I had a capsule endoscopy yesterday so that should be pretty definitive. If it's not Crohn's, it's some sort of rare (so they tell me) motility disorder, and we'll just keep up with painkillers for stomach and joints, and nutritional supplements for weight loss.

Best of luck, I really feel for you. GI pain sucks, not to mention all of the rest of what you're dealing with. Take good care of yourself.
