Hi, my name is Mark, I'm 19 and I may or may not have Crohn's Disease. I have an appointment set up in a few weeks with a gastro doc. Tell me what you think however.
High school was alright, but i started noticing that I would start to have severe lower abdominal pains, diarrhea, and occasionally being forced to go to the bathroom.
After graduation, I had intended go to college, however, during the summer my symptoms increased. Therefore at the start of college, I spent most of my days in the bathroom, and never actually attended a class. Try moving in to a 4th floor dorm room, to drop out in a week. I let my room mate keep the couch. ><
Now I'm sitting in limbo with my parents, hoping that I'll be able to take up next year's classes, but my symptoms are worsening.
I don't really know too much about
the treatment options, but I have been looking at Crohn's disease after my father mentioned the possibility to me, and my symptoms are dead on.
I have a hard time socializing with my old friends because of this disease and have stopped exercising, still smoke often, and my lifestyle is becoming more and more sedentary.
Cheers, sounds like i have a great life ahead of me.
