Maybe I'll knit, maybe I'll just whine

I was all packed and ready for my trip this morning, an easy trip from BWI to Chicago and then Ted (which is fun and I enjoy working those flights) from Chicago to Phoenix for a 19 hour layover. Then about midnight I started feeling horrible, and without going into too many details, having a Crohn's Disease attack. I haven't had a bad one in awhile, so it took me by surprise. Needless to say, after hours of dealing with it, it totally cleared me out and now I'm just nursing the horrible pain that is part of having this auto-immune disorder. Today will be a quiet day as I sit doubled over, I tried to knit earlier and my mind just isn't in it, lace patterns aren't going to work for me today. Tomorrow I'll be seeing my Doctor, and hopefully have some real food in my belly by then. If you'd like more information on this, here's a link: Crohn's DiseaseI hope everyone has a wonderful and fibery day!

Oh Vicki, I'm so sorry you're feeling that way. I hope the attack ends quickly.

Oh dear, I bet you feel horrible. A good friend of mine has Crohns and I see what it does to her. Take care of yourself.

Oh my yes that is indeed a terrible disease. I hope that you are getting better. Forgot to look at the date on your post. Just got back from a long trip and trying to catch up with everyone. Hugs..
