Hi my name is Ashling.
I’m from Dublin and I’m 24 years old. I have Crohn’s Disease.
I became sick last year (jan) got test’s done and was told I just had polips. Then in july I went to Vegas (still sick, still unable to eat drink etc) ended up in hospital there and they told me I had crohns. When I got back the doctor who told me I only had polups said she told me I had crohn’s that it was in her chart (not true never told me). I was still sick but could drink now. Then in early feb this year I got a new doctor who told me I was the worse case he had ever seen, especially in someone so young (24) I was admitted a few times and then one sunday this surgeon came around and told me I was getting the bag and it would be unreversable. I said no, spoke to me doctor who let me leave the hospital the next day. I’m still struggeling with it. I was ment to be married in June of this year but I was told I would still be in hospital so I had to cancell it (very upsetting) I have a alot of support from my Family but my friends seem to have disapeared. I dont know what to do my life just seems sh&%#t now and I would just love to go back to my old bubbely self. Now i’m down all the time cant go anywhere cant work.
I just want a NORMAL life again.
