My story, my name is Gwen Im 35 years old, I first became ill and diagnosed with Crohn's, 1987 age 11. life was hectic and illness was out of control for 17yrs but I met a lovely man 10 years ago (now my hubby) and through up and downs have managed to get two seperate remissions one lasting two years and the last 4 1/2. I have also managed to have to beautiful children, which I was told at a young age may never be possible. I unfortunately have run into another relapse since nov 2010 and I'm working hard to get back. I just wanted to say to all if your struggling KEEP YOUR CHIN UP and remember you're not alone, thats what I tell myself everyday. Hope to chat to you all soon.
