I went through hell before i was dx'd. I was overseas in Bosnia when severe symptoms started and then brought back stateside. I went through 3 military hospitals before i was correctly dx'd with c/d.. My 1st Sergeant thought that I had a massive addiction to drugs because I couldn't eat and was nothing but skin and bones by the forth month of my untreated flare. When the GI told me what I had... I thought that i had some kind of food poison from overseas.. I had never heard of crohn's before that day.

I love how I was dxd with cd!
I had been going to the dr for about 18 months complaining about my pain and d. I had about 7 scans, 2 laperoscopies and several xrays before they washed their hands of me thinking it was all in my head!
A few months later I started a new job, with a fellow barber. After 5 mins chatting, she told me I had CD!
gotta love it.
