Just want to add my congratulations on the diagnosis, better than it could have been.

I wanted to add my bias about testing other foods but I will not as I am expect you are getting plenty of thoughts from some great minds.

Hope you sleep well tonight friend.

Hey Mike, great thread! I don't know you and visa versa but I wanted to reply to this because the thread is inspiring.. My brother (whos name is also Mike :p) Has chrones disease. I want to let you know that this diagnosis is not so bad! It's actually quite manageable. He's had this for years and the worst thing he ever had to do thus far was have an operation on his intestines. (had a few feet removed) BUT that was only because he allowed the disease to go un-managed for so long. There are great advancements now in treating this disease. Kudos to you for the thread and count your blessings that it's not so bad my friend.

Hello friend


I'd wish you luck, but I think in the scheme of things luck has no place. I believe everything happens for a reason; although we my think it bad all things can be wonderful. We just don't really know. So many people worry about dying but have no idea whats to be. It may be better then here and how ironic; being on the otherside and not knowing that here was the place to fear.

It's not the dying people are afraid of; I believe it is the unknown that we fear. We are born and brainwashed all our lives how death is bad; so of course we fear it.

But death is actually a part of life. It is part of the life cycle. Everything dies and returns to the earth, except the soul.

Like Jim Morrison said " No one here gets out alive"

I am a Christian and I will pray for you. The body may return to the earth from where it came, but the soul will always and forever go on. I kind of think of it as " Energy can neither be created or destroyed". But it can be converted to different forms. So your energy must move on my friend, and I believe if you believe in the Lord Jesus and that he died for all our sins and accept him and the sacfrifice he made for us then you shall live for eternity in paradise. But everyone has their own decision to make.

I hope the best for you and admire your strength and courage through all this. And if things don't work out for the best I pray for your wife and son that they will be strong and remember you for who you where.

Stay well my friend

~NOAH

2nd chance. Live life off line. Spend time with people who have made
a investment in you. People that know you for who you are and love you for it. Real life. Live it.

Mike...you are special....thanks for sharing all your thoughts so stoically. Glad to hear it wasn't the dreaded 'C' word...Crohns is painful though. Love to you and yours....
And good luck with that job...wow...been to Alaska recently...I would live there tomorrow...Have an awesome awesome time.

I guess you can only celebrate in moderation- we have all heaved a sigh of relief today...
You are a truly wonderful person and thank you for making us all take stock and think about the things that are more important in life.

Good Luck my friendxx

I think you're doing exactly what you ought to be doing, by continuing to live. Why put your life on hold, just because you *might* get bad news? Go for the dreams without worrying about whether you'll live long enough to realize them.

I think "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" had something about how your inbox will be full when you die. The point was that you don't live your life, then stop living it when it's time to go. First, we never really know when that time is. You could get hit by an asteroid, or wind up beating all the odds and hanging in for another 70 years. You can't count on making it through the day; and you can't count on dying on time, whenever you think that time is. You might last a whole lot longer than you expect.

I mean, what do you have to lose if you follow the dream, and find out it's bad news? OK, so maybe you can't go to Alaska. Did you lose anything for trying? If you *don't* go for the dream, and get good news, then what?

I guess maybe the way to look at it is, if you guess wrong, which way would you feel the best (or the worst) about? Go for the dream you can't live? Or don't go for it and live on knowing you had a shot and didn't take it?

We're all going to die, some sooner, some later. Don't stop living before you die for real, whether that's in a week or in fifty years.

I may spike my pepto with scotch, see how that tastes.


Reminds me of the definition of a Phillips Screwdriver...

Milk of Magnesia and vodka...

You summed it up quite well. If I had a katana, would've been yelling, "banzai!!!" all morning long.

Thanks

To be frank, I was in awe and getting misty myself. Couldn't believe all the support.

Thank you and thank ATS.
