I am 29 yrs old I was diagnosed in June 2005.I never had any traditional symptoms at first I developed a fistula. That led to a colonoscopy and the diagnosis. My mother, sister, and one of my cousins all have Crohns. I have been on remicade since 2005,I am not completely convinced that it works since I have developed 3 new fistulas while being on it. I just had an Mri on friday to re-evaluate my fistula situation, if I have a new one which I am pretty sure I do then my GI is going to switch me to Humira. I work part time in the medical field and I also attend university part time working on completing a BSC in biology/psychology. I also live with my sister who is not well she is on disability and is home all day long and I end up doing most of the housework/errands, but she is capable of doing more I just think that she is used to me doing it. If I dont do the housework/errands it would never get done. With that said I have a fairly high stress level, which doesnt help my crohns. Lately my crohns has been worse then usual. All my stress factors contribute to this I think. I joined this forum so I could not only share my story but also give support and receive support from others!!
