Living With Hunger and Pain

My name is Quiet. i was born with Crohn’s Disease. From my mothers womb, doctors knew that I wasn’t going to be able to live a normal life. But through all the surgeries, sleepless nights, and all other symptoms and affects… The hardest two to deal with are being hungry and being in pain. Like I can have the biggest appetite, but soon as I smell or see the food, I’m sick from the thought of how it could possibly make me feel. Then the pains to follow it. Like I hurt so much. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. I pray strength and endurance to anyone and everyone suffering from any kind of Crohns, Colitis, or Digestive Problems.

    I’m right there with you. I’ve been dealing with starving and intestinal pain simultaneously. Even broth causes pain. How do you all deal with the hunger?

    Hi Quiet,

    I can totally relate to hunger and pain. I really would like more education done around how painful this illness is. We are not meant to have ulcers in our intestine. Honestly it feels like a knife going in and out of your gut. Thanks for sharing your story, I wish you the best of luck. Pam.

    Have they put you on any medication for your Crohn’s?
