I'm 37. Living in Ontario Canada. Originally from the south of England (UK). Was diagnosed in 2001 after a few years of symptoms. Things got pretty bad trying to get someone to take me seriously. I have had many different meds over the years. Been on Asacol (800mg tablets x 6 per day) for a long time now. I do not think they're working. Moved to Canada 3 years ago. Had a temporary work visa for 2 years. Now going through process for permenant residency. Currently have no health coverage which is worrying and costly. Also not allowed to work or travel.
