Struggle with Mild to Moderate symptoms

Last updated: May 2018

My name is Rachel and I have had Crohn's for over 20 years and diagnosed for 20 years next year.

I have had mild to moderate symptoms and struggle with daily symptoms, discomfort and fatigue that are not severe enough for biologics but enough to really impact my life. I have been told that I have achieved clinical remission which is wonderful, but symptom remission lags behind and frustrates me.

I have a supportive family and a great medical team. I feel lucky to have them.
