Old CD but new here

Hi all,

I just found your site thanks to one of your members posting to the Australian site that I normally frequent. Yep another Aussie has wandered here.

I have had CD for many years and am a Nanna - hence the old bit.

Hope i can come and play here with you as well as my other home.

Need to read a few more posts.

Thanks all for the welcome,

Now a bit more about me.

I am 46 have had CD for 25 years, have a wonderful daughter who is 27, a great son in law, and a really cute grandson who just turned 1. Also a loving supportive partner.

I was a nurse for many years till the CD got too bad to keep pushing myself to work. I had a wonderful career and even got to university at 30 - so the CD didn't stop me much till the last few years.

My CD tends to cause bowel strictures and have had 6 bowel resections and have been fighting off the 7th stricture for 2 years with Entocort & 6mp.

I am here for support but also to offer help and support to others with this disease.

Thanks again
