My Story:
I first had serious IBD symptoms in 2002. I was diagnosed with first UC in Jan 2003 and then later Crohn's. I currently manage it with Azathioprine. It took a long time to find a medicine and a dose that worked and didn't cause more issues.

After many years of near constant flares-I am doing pretty least right now!
