What I have observed that people on this forum are the worst cases. I did not bother posting on this forum till my symptoms got very bad.
Here’s the good news. I got the biopsy back & no signs of Chrons. I’m off the antibiotics for few weeks & doing great. My frequency is 4-5 times a day & sometimes I get up during the night.
I had my takedown 10 years back & indulged in lot of parties - alcohol, marijuana, and all good stuff. My weekly consumption of alcohol is 2-3 bottles of wine, 1-2 bottles of Burnon/Whisky/Vodka. I quit smoking last year but used to smoke a pack every two days. I’m late 40’s & workout & trek 3-4 miles 3-4 times a week. I’m very active outdoors.
So the lesson for members, don’t give up, don’t get depressed, don’t think negative. There are millions of people out there who have crohns, colitis, & pouch & are living a perfectly normal life. What I have learned is that you must love & live your passion. My passion is my GF, who keeps me going.
