Hello! My name is Kimberly and I have Crohn's Disease. I was diagnosed in January of 2007. I fell sick with this and the doctor's where I lived at that time had thought that I just had an Eating Disorder and told me that I could not diagnose myself, well I did..Your right I didn't know what it was at the time but It just came to my mind and I looked it up in my Medical Dictionary and the symptoms that I was having was what I read.. I lost my Daughter due to this she was taking care of me instead of me taking care of her... When I went into the hospital in January a surgeon came to see me and by looks of my ex-rays she said it just looked like my bowel was twisted... Surgery came and I said to her can you check me for Crohn's and she said that they will check for everything... Well a One and a Half hour surgery turned into 4, by then my sister's were both getting worried... She had to stop what she was doing to get to where she wanted to go cause it was so bad that she could barley get to my Appendix. I ended up with a Colostomy bag for Eight months and man at the point that I'm at now with all this I wish I wouldn't have had it reversed... It gets to me sometimes that I just even want to wake up in the morning the only thing that keeps me going is my Beautiful Daughter Rebecca...
