Gosh, this is a tough one. Prior to my diagnosis of Crohn's disease, I ignored a lot of signs that told me there was something wrong with my body. During my undergraduate years, there were times I would be doubled over in pain, laying on my bed unable to move but I never sought a doctor to figure out what was wrong. I often blame myself for not seeking help sooner. Perhaps if I had told a doctor what was going on, or really pushed further when the first doctor wrote it off as indigestion, or done more research on my only...perhaps if I had done all of that the disease would have been caught earlier and I wouldn't have had to go through the months of agony. Perhaps I wouldn't have had to be in and out of the hospital every month for 6 months. Perhaps I could have avoided the excruciating pain that came with the abscesses. But at some point I have to stop blaming myself for not taking care of my body when deep inside I knew something was wrong. There was no way of knowing the disease would turn out like this. I must forgive myself for what I didn't know and didn't do.
