You probaly got chrons or uc but you may not want to tell your friends, this can be hard but i told my friends, they had lots of questions for me but i didint want to awnser them. I was scared that people would judge me, then i had the confidence to awnser all the questions people asked me.

I went to school and i told my friends what i could and couldnt eat, they have been super suppports of me and i found out that i could be a normal kid by playing sports. The smell of food at lunch may bother you but you learn how too deal with it. ask your friends and family for help and support and hopefully help you get through life. Dont think your alone because your not

Just checking in on you, and hope you are doing well:)  I just realized you had asked me what dx was...it's a short way of saying diagnosis:)

Hi there:)  You sound like a strong individual, and I applaud you for your courage.  It is very hard to discuss this disease with friends and others because of the stigma of it.  My son was 10 when he was dx, and he had to learn over time how to share with his friends.  Now that he is a mature young adult, it's just second nature to talk about it:)  I wish you well in your journey...take care:)
