New here, diagnosed five years ago.

Hello: I was diagnosed five years years ago and would like to connect with others who can relate to the disease. It's been hard getting people to understand the seriousness of it when conversations start with, "...but you don't LOOK sick."

First symptoms were vague pains in my right side followed by burning eye sensations and loose bowel movements. I was "lucky" in that my diagnosis took only three months. Remicade has made things somewhat bearable, though it's mostly bollocks.

Looking forward to future chats!

I'm also on Remicade. My diagnosis was quick once I saw the GI and was hospitalized, took me three years because I thought I had a bad diet, eaten something bad, had an anxious belly.... welcome to the site. I've found it helpful and I'm not a social media personal at all.

Great information about everything CD related and people help with questions you have.
