    Crohn's disease. I've been really sick lately, and sometimes there seems to be no option other than big expensive drugs. I'm currently on an Ng tube for 8 weeks. I can't believe how much I've learned from this whole experience. A few months ago I tried a certain treatment and it...

    I'm tougher and stronger

    than most people. The fact is, most people are not strong at all. Everybody is so scared of being alone. They need people so badly. It's really quite pathetic. All I keep hearing about is how strong some people think they are. What a bunch of garbage! If they're so strong, why...
