Well I am pleased to say that I heard from Lisa and she said there are about 20 in the group from Australia!!! Hopefully I will be able to learn a lot more about this disease. I have been feeling rather off for a couple of days with a lot of pain in the back and the sides. Had a concerned friend ask what was wrong with me today. I haven't told anyone. She is very astute. I experienced what I would call flu-like symptoms yesterday, and major headache today, though not what I would call a migraine. Waiting for my first app't with the GI doctor has felt like an eternity, and I still have a week to wait. I will be writing out my concerns and questions for him. I applied for a job just before this diagnosis and actually have an interview this Friday. Great news but praying I am going to have a good day so I appear bright and enthusiastic. It is casual but I've wanted a job for the longest time.
Blessings to everyone on this page <3
