crohn's and the future
by Charles Bonham
(Streamwood, IL, Cook)
Hi everyone, my name is Charles. I have been diagnoesed with crohns 6 years ago. I am now 25. I have had severe surgeries. Everyday I get stomach aches, weakness, diarrhea, once in a while blurry vision, weight loss, and once in a while joint pains.
I have a girlfriend right now, who I might spend the rest of my life with, and I'm going to school to finish a four year degree.
My question to everyone...Does life get better?
Can I give this terrible disease to my children?
Am I going to be strong enough to take care of myself, my parents, maybe my own family someday?
HOW DO I MOVE ON?
