I am new to this site and disease as I have just recently come to terms with a 12 year old diagnosis. Im so excited to have people to talk to that can relate and provide so much ensight as this website has already been a life saver! On my 17th birthday, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. I was given a RX but was only on it for a few months before finding out I was pregnant so I was told I could stop taking it. Due to a lack of health insurance and that "superwoman" mentality, I never really did much with it for the last 12 years. However, a few months ago I became severly ill and was forced to take action. Fortunately nothing major is required as of yet. I started Remicade on 2/4/14 and have shown drastic improvement. I feel like this is all so new to me though. I did some research on the disease when I was first diagnosed but so much has changed since then! My hair has been falling out like crazy and is really depressing me because like most women, I love my hair! Not too much else to report at this moment other than I am so thankful for this site and all of the people willing to share something so personal. It has made such a big difference in my life in such a small amount of time! Oh and I am believing the Lord for remission!
