My family has CD in it. I know they say its rare for it to be passed along, so I'm the lucky one and I have it too :) My Aunt has it on my mom's side, and my dad has IBS (this was the only diagnosis, nothing more concrete as he stumps the doctors..) so I guess since gastro problems are on both sides I suppose I might have had a bit more of a risk..
Anyway I dont blame my family for what I have, I'm glad to be here, and I'm glad I dont have anything worse. I tell myself there is much more out there I'm glad I dont have; and that CD is my battle. I've got all my limbs, I dont have elephantitis, etc... You shouldn't feel bad if it does get passed down, rare as that scenario might be. I wish you luck.
