Didway, sorry to hear it's been such a rotten time for you. Bloody diarrhea was and is terrifying, I'm sure.
I'm insanely busy with the wedding season gearing back up and my own fair share of doctors' visits and procedures to cram in where I can, but let's make that Dallas area meet-up a reality soon. In a misery loves company sort of way, I crave seeing other spondy folks face-to-face. I think it could be helpful for you as well- as you say, we look much healthier than we are, and no one understands but other folks who live it.
