New kid on the block!

Hows everybody doin tonight??!

My names Dez, I'm 29, and I've had crohns for as long as I can remember - it was diagnosed when I was 7!! Had the doctors completely foxed for a whole week, until they sussed me!

I had a really tough time of it right through my childhood - missed out on pretty much ALL my schooling until I hit my mid teens. I was given an ileostomy in June '93, and I haven't looked back since - what's the point in THAT?? Looking back? No way! Look forward, at all times - you bump into less things for a start!

Anyway, before I had my surgery, I had every medicine around at the time - prednisolone, mesalazine, you name it. I think it is amazing how far things have moved on though - I don't mind admitting that I hardly know ANY of the names of things you guys are taking now!!

Anyway, away from all this health sh, sorry, stuff - I work for the Scottish registrars office here in Edinburgh, helping folks trace their family trees amongst other things. Fascinating stuff, sometimes! In my spare time I play with my son Ronan, who is 19 months old and just a bit cuter than daddy! I play football ( well, soccer I suppose ), golf, pool - also do some swimming and hillwalking, if it's not too cold (hardly ever over here in rainy Scotland!). I'm a frustrated dj, would love to be on the radio - I like singing too, any kinda music - my heroes are Otis Redding, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis, Otis Redding - I know i said him twice, but hell he's THAT good!

Anyway, I've taken enough of your time, whoever's read my little intro. If you ever need a Scottish cheering up , or some family tree stuff needing done, or a joke or two (clean or dirty, I don't mind!!), then email me. PLEASE!!!

Oh yeah, by the way - I told you all who my heroes were. I missed some people out - ALL of you guys. Any sufferer of crohns, ibs, anything crappy like that - in my opinion, you're all legends. All the love and care in the world to you.

Hi Dez! Thanks for sharing your story!
I think your sense of humour and positive attitude (I agree, btw with always looking forward) will make you fit right in around these parts!

In a way, it's sometimes better not to know about all these medications that are out there. Half the time I don't know what a medication is until I have to start taking it! Regardless, spending time around here will definetely provide some education for you (while you educate others, of course!)

See you around!

Thanks for sharing a little about yourself with all of us Dez. It really seems like your personality and sense of humour will fit in really well here! It seems like you have the positive mindframe that is necessary to go through all that you have been through. It is also great that you are still able to lead such a busy life now. Keep up the good work!

O yeah, you are also our hero !
