I was diagnosed in the Spring of 2009, right before finals (that I missed) during my Junior year in college at the University of Montana. After three ER visits, a one-week hospitalization, Lialda, Mesalamine rectal suppositories, Entocort, (and some Hyoscyamine, Loperamide, and Loratab to ease the pain), a relapse a week later (2 weeks in the hospital this time), Prednisone, Lialda and 6MP, I am now (pretty much) symptom free. I graduated from the University of Montana in May of 2010, and I'm currently working as a graphic and web designer. I want to go OFF of Lialda and 6MP and live my life as a normal person.
