Welcome! Listen, I got diagnosed when I was 24 and it wasn't easy. I went to a great school, got a great job, was a competitive athlete, was married to the man of my dreams, and thought my life was on track and working out perfectly. After all, everything was happening according to my "plan." about
a year into my new job I got diagnosed with CD and I started struggling a bit and now (two years later), I have been medically retired from my job due to the severity of my Crohn's, am struggling to remain a competitive athlete and have had to accept the fact that there are some seasons I will not be able to race, and my marriage suffered a little at first right after I was dx'd b/c my hubby didn't quite understand my illness. We have been through counseling and he has stuck by me every step of the way. This has shown me that if you are indeed with the right person you will be OK.
You're young. It is going to be tough but as long as you have the confidence and determination to succeed you will be just fine! When you meet "Miss Right" you won't feel like you have to hide your illness and you will feel comfy with her. She will love you for who YOU ARE and will just want to nurture and take care of you and take all your pain away. =)
This disease has taught me lots of patience, and that is one think you must have. It sucks, I know, b/c when you are young you want things to happen immediately. There is no quick fix for this disease, but attitude is everything. Keep your head up and know that as long as you are positive, you take care of yourself (don't drink alcohol, smoke, and make sure you eat properly), you will be okay. You've got the rest of your life ahead of you, just take care of yourself and you'll be okay.
And remember, you've got TONS of support here on HW. Keep your head up!
