Quotes I have crohns and I take humira which are 2 injections I get in my stomach every 2 weeks. They're not so bad but sometimes they're painful. Well I'm only 18 and was first diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was 15 and just a few months ago re diagnosed with crohns. Besides having crohns I also have depression, partly because I feel like no one will want me if they know I have crohns. I take a lot of pills and doctor visits are constant. (Or at least more than the average healthy person) I used to be in the hospital a lot. I have been in 2 years but I still fear that that could happen to me again, and knowing crohns, it probably will. I don't feel good enough. I hate having to deal with this disease why would anyone else? If I had already been married a long time and I got it, that would be a little different. But who would want me knowing how broken I am? At times I'm a difficult depressed mess and then on top of that I have Crohns. Quotes

I have been up and down on steroids, imuran, MP6, and Humira, but they all gave horrific side effects. I also have cyrriatic psoriasis and arthristis which are eating my joints and disfiguring my bones in my hands and feet. There have been so many new medications and technological advancements since I was diagnosed 31 years ago, but I have learned to manage. I now have a loving husband of 28 years, 2 grown children, and a granddaughter who keeps me busy. Quotes
