I was diagnosed in 2001. When I went to college, at first I thought it was my opportunity to have a clean slate: nobody had to know I had Crohn's disease. However, in my first week of college I met…we'll call her Jane. And Jane had Crohn's Disease. And Jane had never met anybody her age with Crohn's Disease. So, I decided from that point on that it is important to share my story, to spread the word (proudly) that "I have Crohn's disease!", and to help strengthen the strongest support network I've had: the CCFA. Also, I'm a Leo, actually adore long walks along the beach, also have that fibro thing, and love knitting/crafting/netflix (because, who doesn't?).
