I'm new here!
Hi, my name is UnderTheRainbow. I'm here because I have Crohn's disease. I have suffered for so many years. and I bear this alone. I've tried to explain to my family and the few true friends that I have left, but they truly don't understand. I don't go out or around anyone when I'm seriously ill; so maybe I'm to blame for them not understanding. I'm 71 years old now, and I'm so tired. I've developed so many complications as a result of my Crohn's...severe anemia, kidney issues, vision problems, severe arthritis and CAD ( coronary artery disease). I deal with pain every day as a result, and when I have a flare it's a nightmare. Lately I don't seem to have the will to fight any longer. I'm just so tired now.
