how old are you?

I was just wondering how old everyone is and how old they were when they were diagnosed? I am 27 years old and was diagnosed about a month ago.

HAHA Penny! (She's really in her late 20's)... You could do a poll Donna - or 2 separate polls.. That would make it more anonymous.

i (apparently) look in my 30's, i feel in my 20's, i act like a big kid, but i'm actually 46. can't believe it sometimes lol.

i was diagnosed just before i was 20, but had been suffering typical Crohn's symptoms since about 15, & had signs of it from early childhood.

Astra - i think you & me might be cyber twins! is your birthday next month?
