Hi, my name is Melody and I am a current first year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease during my junior year of high school at the age of sixteen. I have gone through multiple medications including Remicade, Humira, and Azathioprine, all of which have caused an allergic response. Currently, I am managing my Crohn's with Budesonide steroids and a relatively healthy diet. I have yet to meet another student at any university with Crohn's or Colitis, so I would be grateful to get in touch with anyone who is interested in having an understanding friend!
