New here

Hey there everyone, I'm Dave. I joined a myspace group for crohn's and got an email from the group's starter/admin pointing me here. I can't guarantee that I'm gonna be online a lot here as I'm extremely busy right now (new job interview, possibly new house purchase, women, life, etc) but it seems like a really good e-community here. Gonna do my best to stop by as often as possible, hopefully it'll be a good bit.

I'm 28. I was diagnosed with crohn's at age 9. I'm used to it. Doesn't mean it doesn't suck. I fight it though. I fight it hardcore, and I've come out on top bigtime. I have my probs (bathroom rush anyone??) and I don't expect them to go away. I had surgery at age 16. I just got a tattoo on my stomach with the diag code 555.2 below my belly button. There's two panels of tat on either side of my surgery scar. I decided to embrace the crohn's as well as fight it. It's gonna be a little sick and disturbing when it's all done, but it's a clear representation of the hell that crohn's has put me through over the past 20 years.

So, yeah, there's a brief synopsis. Hope it suffices for now.

Have a good one all, keep up the good fight.

Welcome! That tattoo idea is great, I am also looking into getting one on my scar, but I was thinking more along hte lines of making it less noticeable...haha

Uploaded a small pic of my tat on my avatar and profile. If interested in seeing more pics (it's a full stomach piece) just send me a PM and I'll either link you to them or email or something. I'm not sure, I'm exhausted, can't think anymore right now. Sleep time. G'night all
