It sounds like you are making progress. You will likely find that in time you will be able to eat 'normally' again. ..... at least until the next flare-up, which hopefully will be a long way off.

Keep us updated :-)

update. I am off of the Gluten and Dairy free restrictions. i can have crust less bread and soft foods. I need to puree meat, i am getting Remicade infusions for my crohn's Disease. the Dr. i am seeing in morgantown is hoping with these treatments the Crohn's would go away and i won't need surgery. so for now i am doing what the Dr. wants. it is great to have bread and dairy again. they never bothered me before. and crust less bread is good, i never was one for bread crusts anyway.

What is it to do with your husband's friend whether he likes the food you eat or the cleaning products you use? I would be inclined to tell him to take a flying leap!

Anyway, there are a couple issues here with regard to YOUR health.

1. Ask your Dr to refer you to a Registered Dietitian. They can be a fantastic help for people with these sorts of conditions. Just keep a diary (SP's Nutrition Tracker is great in conjunction with the Daily Notes section on the Tracker) of all the food you eat, the amount, and anything like stress/symptoms, etc. that you have.

2. While you are with your Dr, also ask for a referral to a Therapist who will be able to help you deal with the stressors in your life. As you realize, stress is a big part of Crohn's .... any chronic health condition actually. A Therapist will be able to give you the tools to deal with the stress.

Where it comes to your husband's friend, I suggest that you get the book "Boundaries" by Clark and Townsend. You will learn how to set boundaries and apply it to help you in your life. Most libraries would have it, or at least be able to get it in for you.

Good luck,
Kris

Hello my name is Heather.
to give you a little background. in 2004 i my appendix burst and i had surgery i don't mean to get graphic but they removed my appendix and 6 to 8 inches of my intestine as well. the doctor told my husband, mom, two brothers and sister in - law that i might develop crohn's .
yep i did.
fast forward 11 year later, i am under stress ( i don't work anywhere , i don't have kids yet)i had a flare up in July with a hospital stay and the kept me a short time and sent me home on a regular diet so i thought i would eat healthy. so i bought cottage cheese, string cheese, i crusted my fish with flour sesame seeds garlic and dill and seasoned salt and fried it in olive oil. but i got nauseous and got sick again so back to the hospital. they put a tube up my nose and down my throat . i did to much outside the home and trying to take care of my husband as well. and my husbands friend gets after me because he does not like the foods i eat or the cleaning products i use.
so i can't handle stress at all. i don't want to have another flare up.
