Hi Brandy, I feel ya. I am a African American male who contracted Crohn's 5 years ago at age 59. Thank God I too have a family who loves and supports me. My small intestines were affected with severe swelling which prevented regular BM's. I also suffered from diarrhea, vomiting and the worst stomach pain ever. I tried taking Humira (r) for 8 months which didn't help plus the cost was $972.00 a shot even with insurance. I finally accepted the fact that surgery was my best option. So, I had about 15 inches of small intestines removed. So far, so good. I am taking IMURAM (r) which hopefully will control future swelling. Thanks for sharing your story. I will certainly use your suggestions. Take care and stay strong. Sincerely, Jazzy B.
