18 months on...Perfect bloodwork again.

I am so well.  :)  I just received my latest blood test results and all are excellent.  My GP is very thorough and tested everything - liver and kidney function, thyroid, Vit D, Vit B12 and iron and probably some others I can't remember.  Everything is perfect. :)  She said I don't have to have my blood tested for 12 months.

It's been around 18 months since I started SCD and I'm so pleased I did.  I remember after I was first diagnosed, searching the internet to try and find a natural alternative to the drugs my GI wanted me to take for my Crohn's Disease.  First of all I went vegan for a couple of weeks, but it really didn't suit me.  I lost more weight and felt even more exhausted.  As soon as I started SCD, though, I could tell it suited me.  Very quickly my tummy settled down and I started to feel better.  I remember being so sceptical that it would actually work.  My GI discouraged me from trying SCD, saying if I didn't get started on the drugs then I would get scarring which would lead to more problems. 
Well, I can say I don't have any scarring.  My Crohn's is in remission and I'm thrilled.
