I was diagnosed in October 2009 during my junior year of high school. I struggled very severe symptoms during my last two years of high school and in my first year of college. Due to my illness, I ended up taking a gap year after attending half the semester of my freshman year of college. I am now doing much better, receiving infusions of Remicade every 8 weeks in NYC. I am studying psychology/nutrition in hopes of supporting adolescents that are dealing with the same things I experienced.
