It's the girl who suffers, though, not the family...
Not really fair on her. She's young. She probably thinks she knows it all and that she's invincible. That's the way the young think. (Not every single one of them, but you get my drift.) And mild Crohn's is an "invisible" disease so to speak; that is, you look the same and nobody is gonna notice if you're going to the toilet a bit more often than normal or if you're passing liquid stools. I can forgive even the family for not taking it seriously; why should they have insight into a disease that takes sufferers years to learn about
But still, they have been warned. Some people just like to lack common sense, I guess. As for that doctor, I do have words for him but I won't post them here.
PS: Oh, and where I ended up? Being told a month ago by my doctor that my Crohn's would "kill" me if I didn't take anything. That's where "mild" Crohn's got me a decade down the line and god only knows I did my best to ignore it for all of that time. That's probably why
I ended up being told it would kill me.
