Hi, my name is Brenda, I initially got sick when I was 23. I lost 43 lbs in 2 months... but, I thought I had psychologically "made" myself sick cause I was tired of being fat.(odd thought NOW)
I was diagnosed (officially) when I was 29. I inherited my crohns from my grandmother (she had it as well as.... her 2 sisters, her brother and her dad)... LOVELY. It skipped all of her children, and her grandchildren and landed on ME. I remember calling her when I knew for sure what was wrong with me and said... "You know, you could have left me money. You didn't HAVE to leave me your sh*t disease." (We both thought it was funny)
Anyway, I am about to be 36 in a couple of weeks, and I control my crohns mostly with diet. I still have my moments, but those are nowhere near as bad as they have been for me in the past. Its all trial and error, right?

It's not what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. It's how you REACT to the "what doesn't kill you" that makes you stronger.
