I dealt with a flare up that lasted for almost a month and I never received help and ironically, as I am an EMT, I don't like bullshitting the hospital emergency departments. But at the same time, my flare ups were so unbearable. I was diagnosed a week after my 21st birthday, but I knew I was so tired a lot and my stomach was hurting a lot. I am new to this forum and I just went into remission now but I had another flare up that wouldn't let me sleep for nearly two days. I wonder if this website is a decent forum to provide emotional support. I would love to hear your thoughts.
