So Ive been around on this site for about 3-4 months now, since my last huge flare up...And Im sitting here tonight bored, and it got me wondering about things, like how old everyone is here, when were you dx'ed, what do you do for a living (stressful job?, do you think it effects your crohns?), and if you think your Crohns as gotten better or worse with age...
I'll start I guess lol
-I'm 21 yrs old, I was dx'ed when I was 16
-I work in a candy store, making truffles, fudge, caramels ect...
-My job itself is not stressful I actually love it and have a blast at work (and I can eat chocolate all day, what more could a girl ask for haha), but around the Holidays when we get very busy I def notice that my stomach starts to act up.
-Im fairly new to this disease I guess, and Ive only had 2 serious flare ups, the first is when I was actually diagnosed with Crohns, the second was about 4 months ago which lead to my 2nd surgery, but Id have to say the first flare up was by far worse then the second...so for me in the 5 years that Ive had this disease it hasnt gotten any worse then when I first found out I had it.
Dianogsed with Crohns at 16, 21 yrs old now.
