Don't want people to feel sorry for me but needed to vent my feelings out to the big wide world. Have Crohn's disease, pbc and early menopause so can't have children but have good life and work full time. Always try and stay positive and everything going well until I saw consultant today. Liver doing well and crohns under control which in wonderful. apparently I'm obese and unless I do something dramatic I will be dead in a few years not from my illnesses above but due to my weight. I am fat but not overly (size 18/20) Since taking urso I have pain in my legs and knees and she said that's caused by my weight and not tablets and that I should have a gastric band. With crohns I had to have a liquid diet for six weeks (500 calories) a day and put two pounds so no matter what I do I can't loose weight. Made to feel worthless and sat here crying thinking what's the point.
