Hi guys! I'm 13, I was diagnosed with Crohn's when I think I was 9 or something. Can't really remember. I had anemia for an entire year and got pulled out of school(it was a private school and the teachers were so uncooperative with me because I was going to the bathroom and got really sick we did homeschool) then I got a colonoscopy(I hate those!!) and found out I had crohn's. I was on 6-MP and that worked for awhile but it stopped and now I'm on remicade and it works really good. I hope I can fit in here and everything! My remission is so far in that it's like I don't even have crohns anymore!
 
Welcome! Congratulations on your remission. I can't even imagine how good you must feel. You will fit in here just fine.

:welcome: JM. It must be hard at such a young age. I had my pre Crohns days when I was about 15 or so, bathrooms had to be around. They didnt have imodium and stuff like that in my days. We had "dr Fowlers" strawberry extract. Many years later after my daughter was born is when the nightmare started. You are lucky in someways that there are computers and this forum and you will most certainly fit in. A few here your age group. Please join in!

Careful? The only, and I mean ONLY, food I cannot really eat is hot dogs. And I'm fine with one of them, two or more and I get sick. Other than that, BRING ON THE PIZZA! Haha just kidding. I watch how much I eat, but not what I eat ;)

Thanks, and quick question. You say you are Canadian, I thought that they only gave surgery and steroids in that country because of the Universal Healthcare?

I am glad that foods do not seem to be too big a problem at the moment. Please keep an eye on this though. If you do eat something and get a grumbly tummy and then eat it again and the same thing happens I would say your body doesn't like something about it.
