My sister was diagnosed with Crohns a few years ago so it was new to our family...this year I was diagnosed with it myself and tbh I don't know how she ever coped with us knowing nothing about it! I really wish I'd understood it better for her because now that's what I need more than anything !! Before I was diagnosed people honestly thought I was faking!!! Accusing me of skiving and being lazy etc, even people that are super close to me And that bothered me more than the disease itself because all I need is support, not sympathy...now that months have passed since my diagnosis, people seem to forget that I have a life long disease and expect me to be fine by now! I know I should shrug off any insensitivity but sometimes it really gets to me and I feel really depressed...anyone here experienced this??? Or any suggestions as to what i can do?
