I was hospitalized in Jan/08 because i had bloody diarreha andbad stomache cramps. they thought that maybe it was the diclofenac i take for AS.(ankylosing spondylitis) so they took me off diclo and did a flex and was told that everything seems normal.. told me that i just have some inside hemmorroids..so was sent home..it was better for a while..then started again in April, diareahha and stomache aches no blood this time though. Was in the hospital again, this time they did a colonoscopy and endoscopy.. another GI Dr. and he said that everything seems normal.. well I was so frustrated now, because how can things be normal when I have diarreha and not eating anything... not even wanting to drink anything and the stomache pains are not going away.. they took me off the IV and I was left in pain for 2 days.. it was Sat and i said that i can't stand it anymore and there was another GI Dr. on call and he said that he is going to get a CT Scan done for me... so the next day I had a CT scan and it showed lots of inflammation in my large bowels.. so this GI dr. said that we have to do the colonoscopy again.. i really didn't want to but was sick of being sick.. so friday was the first colonoscopy and monday was the second and this time he said that yes its abnormal and took biopsies and told me that it is either Crohns or colits.. and was immediately given meds to treat crohns and colitis..Asocal and diclophine... so was realeased from the hospital.. come home and its been a few weeks now on the meds and again actually yesterday bloody diarrehha and stomache aches... I am just really fed up and scared, does this go away??? why is it coming back again...what can I do to get rid of the stomache cramping??/ I don't even want to eat b/c I don't want to be in the bathroom more than I already am..I am really frustrated and need some helpful advice please......

Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
