My name is Karey and I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when I was 11 years old. I’ve noticed, since I was diagnosed, that people look at me differently when they find out. Like, they feel sorry for me. I don’t like it when people apologize to me because I have a chronic disease. I know it’ll never go away. I know it’s hard sometimes. I know I take about a million pills and two shots. I know. Okay? Having a chronic disease is not a burden. It’s a blessing in disguise. God wouldn’t have given me Crohn’s if he didn’t know I’d be able to handle it. Now, because of this disease, I’ve been able to share my story with a lot of people that I wouldn’t have even met otherwise. I went to Washington D.C. and talked to senators about a bill to increase funding to find a cure. And I met a boy band drummer who has Crohn’s too. I’m proud to have my disease, because I know I’m a better, stronger, more confident person despite all my struggles.
