I'm a 17 year old guy with Crohn's Disease, I've had it for over half my life. I never had to have surgery, and it doesn't look like I will have to, and I want you to know that I appreciate you making this post. You're struggle with colitis is something I feel that I can sympathize with, and your strength is an inspiration to me. I went from a 64 pound fourth grader to a 175 pound 11th grader. I promise you that you can do anything you want with your life. What medicines did you use? What side effects did they have? How has your diagnosis and recovery changed your character?

I take a combination of pentasa and 6mp. Since I started the 6mp (middle school) I've been getting a lot more colds but luckily I've learned to power through them over the years. I take a lot of Sudafed and Tylenol to deal with it. The good days and bad days are definitely a part of my life. One last question: how does alcohol effect you?
