Thanks for sharing your story. But I disagree with you, you are not cured. but are just in remission. I have had this dd for over 34 years, and I too am in remission. My longest remission so far has been 20 years, but I am not naive enough to believe I am cured. And I have not drank milk for years as many Crohnies are lactose intolerant. I don't want anyone who is newly diagnosed to think that all they have to do is quit drinking milk and they are cured, because at this time it is known that there is NO cure for Crohns.
By the way, I am the only one in my family who has Crohns too. JMHO
Good luck to you!
