Hi, My name is Billy. I've suffered from crohn's for 18 yrs. It was misdiagnosed for the first 25 yrs. 3 yrs ago a doctor finally did a test and found out what was wrong with me. When I say I suffer from crohn's disease, I mean it. People who have this disease suffer every day of their lives. I have tried all the treatments, from doctor prescribed to over the counter stuff. I don't respond to any of it. Last year I lost my job because of my illness. I went back to college and finished my degree but now I don't know how I'm going to go back to work. I still suffer from crohn's evryday.I've been to the point of giving up more than once. I've considered suicide many times because I'm so tired of fighting this disease. But I always seem to find some one, either on the news or from looking around, that is worse than I am. I can see, I can walk, I can talk, lots of people would trade places with me I'm sure if they couls only have the gift of sight or be able to walk again. I know that I am rambling on and not making much sense. But what I mean to say is that your sister needs to talk to other people that have the disease. Are there any support groups in your area? Check out the Crohns and Colitis foundation of America's web site. There may be a support group near you. Your sister is lucky to have some one like you who cares for her. My hat goes of to you. If she would like to talk to some one else who suffers daily from crohn's she can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck to you and your sister.
