Thank you for sharing your journey. I have a 13 YO daughter that is currently experiencing some similar health issues that are yet to be diagnosed. As her mom it is so difficult to watch her remove herself from social situations that she once thrived in, not being able to eat and to see her so terribly ill. We often speak about her journey and how she is learning to be more prayerful, faithful and patient by leaning on her Savior and Heavenly Father to get her through this trial. I pray for your life to be blessed with continued understanding, hope and faith.

Thanks for sharing this intimate journey. I believe trusting in Heavenly Father to guide us in our medical decisions is so important. Fear can often keep us from doing what is best for our health. I waited too long to treat my Crohn's appropriately and have scarring that I may not have experienced had I followed my doctor's advice sooner. Praying for a cure some day!

Thank you for sharing the process of sustaining faith through a long term challenge. I appreciate addressing the real discouragement and fears we all battle in our trials, and it is especially hard when it’s a long term trial or a trial of a lifetime!

I was diagnosed with an IBD called Ulcerative Colitis about a year ago with pretty much the same symptoms as Chrons and I know the pain, anxiety and embarrassment the symptoms can cause. Luckily the Doctors found the right medications to bring me into remission and I am thankful for that. Kudos to this young lady and the good man who will be by her side through this for the rest of her life. I too have a wife that stands with me in this. And nothing means more to me. Those with IBD may look quite normal and go about our business everyday...but every day we suffer. Keeping faith that the Lord will help us through the trial brings great comfort.

I connect to this story as I have chronic IBS. I had this as a little girl and remember things that happened. it subsided for awhile then came back full force. these are autoimmune illnesses or diseases. hopefully one day there will be a cure. there are many more out there and different kinds of these autoimmune diseases. im old now and it ravages my body again and I am like a child who went going out to eat have to make sure where the bathroom is. it does curtail what I do. however, I understand the pain and realize that my Father in heaven knows and the Savior suffered for me. I have other illnesses as well and know that the Savior was right there for me.

Wow! Thank you for sharing! My 15 yo DD was diagnosed with this awful disease a year ago. I am so grateful I stumbled upon this to give her some hope and so she is reminded that her Savior is near. <3

I too shed a tear. I can feel for you as I have horrible pain at times in my feet and can't sleep. I know the Lord is with me and keeps me going and am blessed.

I’m so touched by her courage and renewal as she’s moved through her life—what a tough thing! On the surface, no one can see—but those are go love her know. Grateful for her sweet attitude and patient persistence.
