Jeness' Story

Last updated: September 2018

Hi I am Jenness. I was diagnosed with Crohns disease in 1992. I have not had any surgeries yet. The past three weeks I have had some diarrhea with green runny poop. I had some xrays done all negative and am on a small dose of prednisone which does not seem to help. They say it is not appendicitis, so the bowels are not doing good. Some people think maybe I am dreaming that the pain isn't real. They should make all of our families attend classes on our disease so that they know what we are going through.
