First post, Hello!

Hi everyone!

I have been reading this forum for a few years now and decided it was finally time to post. I am a 26 year old female, diagnosed with Crohn's disease when I was 16. I was initially on Remicade and Imuran. After being on this combo for 2 years, I contracted Epstein Barr Virus which led to a condition called Hemophagocytic Lymphohystiocytosis and was hospitalized for a month. Luckily about six months after that I was back in remission, and stayed in remission for about 5 years (no meds). Last winter I experienced a serious flare up, and was put on Humira and 6MP (37.5 MG) I've been feeling much better but not 100%; I experience constipation now more than diarrhea.

Anyways, that's my story! Going in for a colonoscopy this coming Monday, lucky me haha.
