Hey, 

I'm a 32 year old suffering from severe crohn's since I was 16. Had major surgery to remove my whole large bowel and was giving an ileostomy. Living life with crohn's from 16 to 22 wasn't easy but I could manage a normal life, family, work and everything else... Then bam! Once I hit 22 my health my started to deteriate even more. I was then diagnosed with intestinal failure and have been on TPN for the last 10 years.

So now it's a combo of crohn's, ileostomy, TPN, anemia and everything else that comes with it.
