Welcome to Crohn's Voice

Welcome, this Blog is a chronicle of my ongoing experience with Crohn's. My goal is to provide a place where people can come to learn, vent or just gather some comfort from the fact that they aren't the only ones living with this "crappy" disease.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 1997 at the age of 14. Since then I have been on a plethora of medications including Prendisone, Imuran, Asacol and Remicade.
In June of 2005 I underwent surgery to remove 18 inches of necrotic intestine. Since then I have managed to put on a bit of weight for the first time since being diagnosed.
In the past couple of years I have learned that Crohn's is also causing inflammation in my Liver. This was a scary thing to learn but hopefully it doesn't progress into something worse.
I have a wonderful Wife and a loving Family who are very supportive and usually quite concerned about my health. I don't know what I would do without them.
Hopefully my thoughts and experience can help some of you who are suffering or have loved ones suffering from this awful disease. Feel free to comment and share your experiences as well.
