Hi Ashphobia and welcome. I was blessed and didn't start having symptoms til my late 40s and have been dxd for I think 7 yrs now or somewhere around there.
I don't know what it would be like to have it at such a young age but like Alice said she has lived a full life with it and many others have too.
We are always here to get you through it.
luv and hugs
