In the years before my diagnosis, I attended the local A&E multiple times for severe stomach pains and gut related symptoms, each time being given a temporary fix with minimal answers.

It wasn’t until my final years of secondary school that I realised something was very wrong - I began to pass significant amounts of blood each time I went to the bathroom.

My parents always said I would need to fight harder than others to try and live a “normal” life, and that’s exactly what I did.

My stubborn determination wouldn’t allow me to give up and leave Crohn's Disease take over, even on days when all I would want to do was stay in bed and wake up as someone who wasn’t ill.
