life and the people in it

Posted: Jul 5, 2009

My story goes back to May of 2009. I woke up running to the bathroom.  I  thought I had ate some bad food and didnt think much about it. On the 5th day I couldnt eat, got real weak and still sunning to the bathroom. I went to the ER,  they gave me fluids, nausea meds, pain meds ,ct scan, xrays and they even took x-rays of my stomach, blood work,and a urine test. They said that I was all right. 14 ER visits later, 25 pounds lighter and hardly walking,  my son's grandmother paid 1,300 dollars for me to have my stomach and colon tested. This is two and a half months later, my new GI atmitted me. I was so sick, with hardly no food in two in a half months. He said I had so much infection in my colon and stomach.  Now remind you the ER said I didnt have no infection so that shows you a lot of tests aint true. On May the 25th my GI called and said I have crohns and no one can say that I wasnt sick.

Life has its ups and down and with crohns its hard but crohns is not my life. My life is my life and it's hard but I thank god for the life he gave me and ive stop asking why me. Why not me!
