I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at the age of 11, on the day before I started my first day of High School. Between the ages of 11-15, I was guinea pig for medications which had little known effects on Crohn’s and the medication was causing me more pain than bliss. After the age of 16, I attended the hospital less and less and just led my life how I wanted to.

On Christmas Day 2017, my bowel perforated which leaked into my insides and was deemed as life threatening. This resulted in having an ileostomy bag which was later reversed.

Since surgery, I have been in perfect health. I know longer take any medication and rely on two things, which are a clean and anti-inflammatory diet, aswell as exercise.
