  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thanks for the replies. I didn't clarify very well, did I? My son was also diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowl Disease because he has been in sooo much pain. He's been in the hospital 3 times in the past month, always coming home with the pain still intact. He started his diet immediately. I'm scared beause it doesn't seem to help. Why? Everyone of you say that it can only be controlled with the diet. What about the pain? I guess it is all the Inflammatory Bowl Disease? I don't know how he stands living with this every day.
  3. Sorry, My son was also diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowl Discease. I didn't think that the 6mp was for that. What is 6mp?

  4. Sounds like it's hard for you. I never thought of teasing as something my son could be dealing with. I am going to ask him now. I hope that you could tell your friends and family how you feel. They may be trying to be "light about it", but obviously it is having the opposite effect for you. A simple, "Hey Guys, it is really hard for me to ........" Hang in there. Karbol
  5. Hi, I am a new member - a Mom with a 36 yr old son newoly diagnosed only 1 mo ago. I am so scared for him. he has lost so much weight and his coloring is a pale, ash color. My hustban and I feel helpless as to how to support him. Before this our son was an avid soccor player, cyclist, and softball player. It is soooo strange to see him in pain and struggling with a new diet that doesn't seem to be helping at all. We feel so frustrated and scared for him. His wife and 3 children look at us with a "deer in the head-lights" look, as they are trying to adjust to husband and dad that is so different from before. When can we expect this to get better. He is now on prednisone for healing and a new drug called 6mp. Anyone ever heard of 6mp? We want to be able to make a difference for him and his family but don't know how. Karbol
