Happy Birthday gorgeous.
Climbing this ladder of yours is a bit dangerous at your age isnt it?
Just joking, have a sensational day and know that you are in my thoughts.

All my love

Hi Nicky,
My husband directed me to your website after he was speaking to one of his work collegues who had been speaking to you. I have had Crohns Disease for 20 years, since I was 29. I have also had numerous surgeries both for and as a consequence of my Crohns.

I am lucky that I have a full time job and a totally fantastic boss who is very understanding. I had to have most of Jan 2009 off work as I had a major flare up and a huge reaction to the cortisone tablets I was prescribed (huge dosage) after being on hydracortisone in hospital. I was lucky, I had my children before I was diagnosed. Your book sounds very interesting. I will most likely purchase it. I don't have a ileostomy as yet, but it will probably be in my future as well I suppose.

It was a privilege to nurse you in your most recent unfortunate episode in hospital. Life has handed you many lemons but you have had the abiity to turn them to lemonade. I was impressed by the maturity you handled your situation and still had the room in your heart to encourage those around you. My husband and I both read your book and applaude you for your honesty and bravery. I trust many more lives will be touched by you in the future and will be the richer for it.
Love, Dianne Parry.

badly need your help. It?s like your batteries get low, and you need to charge them on someone else?s story.
I am from Ukraine and learning to speak English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "Having read a lot of resumes over the years, jeffrey nails it in his post how to write a bad resume."

Thank you very much :p. Keiko.

Hey Nicky
As promised, the tears flowed reading the book on the plane trip to Thailand! Had read every page by the time we flew over Darwin. It bought back a lot of memories.
More importantly, I am sure your book will help many who are going through tough times and will take inspiration from your positive attitude and ability to keep smiling.
I am looking forward to the next book and wish you all the best for a healthy, happy future.
Much love, Tracy, Jason and Renee,(not forgetting Jake, Rusty and Audrey!)

I have UC, but my Sister has crohn's.
Maureen - Darwin NT on February 10, 2008 at 3:55 PM said:


I am another one with a story very similar to yourself, I was diagnosed with Chrohn's just before my 21st birthday, have had many operations and cannot have children - we have a very spoilt ridgeback dog named Scoobie, before Scoobie their was Tishy who died of cancer at 15 years. I didn't let my disease stop me from riding my horses and have done many different things in my life - mostly living in the outback with no contacts at all except the Cancer Foundation in Darwin who I get my Ileostomy supplies mailed from, we only ever had a medical clinic and sometimes a doctor in town if we were lucky but I love the outback and couldn't live anywhere else.

Hi Nicky,
After reading the article you wrote in the Ostomy Australia magazine I am very keen to get a copy of your book. My story is very similar to yours by the sounds of it. I was diagnosed with Crohns when I was 17, have had plenty of operations and could only have one child. I am interest in the book for my family so as they can maybe understand what I go through everyday living with Crohns (not that I would dare whinge. Anyway good on you for getting this together and I really look forward to reading it.

Hi Nicky,

Hope the sales are going well. I have just ordered another copy for a friend.

Also hope the health is stable, I am sure the good weather will make a differnce.

Hi Nikki,
I too suffer from Crohns for over 12 years. I was diagnosed with the disease when I was in my late 40's.
But I have not been through half of what you have been through, but I don't envy you. I pray that you will be better from now on. I too feel depressed at times and feel I need someone to vent my feelings. I think some counselling would help me greatly.
Thank you very much for writing this wonderful book which was given to me by my good friend as a gift.
