I've just turned 16 and not long ago i was diagnosed with Crohns :/
I was given the option of a liquid diet fed through a tube or steriods, so i chose the steriods. I'm right down to 1 every other day now and i finish on wednesday but my cheeks are a bit puffy, i've heard this is normal but i was jst wondering how long it'll take for them to go back to normal, its kinda getting me down.
I'm on 9 tablets a day at the moment, which isnt that many compared to what i was on, but i hate it, i hate having to remember to take them, and i hate taking them. I'm tired just about all the time too and its really getting me down.
I feel alone, even though i have my family and friends, but none of them understand, no matter how hard they try.
I just need some reasurance that things will get better. I know my life wont ever be normal, but will it ever be close to normal.
Please help ?
