Hi, I feel like I'm entering a world I'm not quite to grips with yet but please bare with me...
I recently turned 21 but have been diagnosed since 15 with BD. I started out as a child with mouth ulcers and fatigue which has since developed into genital ulcers, chronic diarrhoa (sorry I know thas gross but oh so real!) debilitating fatigue, back pain, joint pains, headaches and skin lesions along with the occasional forgetful moment so please excuse if I've missed anything out 🙈
I guess I just wanted to be involved with people who understand what I'm going through because as I'm sure you'll agree, the world isn't all to clued up on what its really like to live day by day with BD and how much it can affect you both physically and mentally.
My most recent problems seem to be with mobility. Backpain and joint pain, along with feeling very weak and fatigued have me considering on occasion if I should invest in a wheelchair? I'm not sure if that question sounds stupid to this group but I'm still quite young and have suffered so long I feelolder than my years 👵
Is there any advice you could throw my way? I appreciate people in my conditions opinions more than doctors these days
Also sorry if this sounded sporadic, I ppromise I'll get better ☺
