This is so true!! I know most people who give me advice on how I should be managing my health, love me & the advice comes from a good place. However, if it was as simple a fix as lose weight/exercise more/take this medication or supplement - I can assure you I would have done so by now. KJ

I was 19yrs when I was diagnosed with my first autoimmune disease, just a girl. Now I am a middle aged woman with 9 autoimmune diseases and 30 chronic health conditions. I use a power wheelchair 90 percent of the time. So take a moment and look beyond the smile. She is a survivor! #crohns #crohnsdisease
