Hi my name is Elaine I’m 56 years old and I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 1983. So much has occurred since that sad day. I have acquired a few other problems that are attributed to my having Crohn’s. They are, Rhuemotoid Arthritis, Fybromylgia, Neuropathy and the latest is Peripheral Artery Disease. Having a Auto-Immune deficiency disease change my life forever. I fight daily not to become depressed. Tat is for my family’s sake. I am seeing a new doctor soon whom I hope can help me improve my quality of life. I am so over this fatigue. On top of that lately I have not been able to make it to make it to the restroom on time! Awful just awful! Stress is my enemy so I do TRY not to engage in any. But life does happen around me so I handle things the best way I can. Well this is me! I just wanted to say hello and I wanted to share my story. God Bless all of you that are suffering daily.🎄🎅🏼Elaine

Hi, Elaine. I know I don't know you or much about you, but you remind me of my mother. Maybe your age or the flow of your speech, but I just wanted to let you know someone was listening. I hope you find comfort in your family. From diapers to pull ups, underwear to lingerie, and back to diapers. Isn't life just grand?
