So this is my 3rd year of college but my first year at a big university. My first time out alone living with a roommate and living with Crohn’s Disease. It was a great semester but it wasn’t easy. I just finished up this week and I had very little sleep, there was one day I was up for 37 hours, days I only slept for 3-4 hours max! Luckily my stomach held up for the most part! I am so thankful for everyone who helped me throughout the semester! I am studying medicine to be a Doctor so the semesters will get harder and harder but after this semester I feel like I can handle anything! This was a true test of my ability and strength to come through on my own and feeling well! It’s gonna take a couple of days to recoup but I’ll be feeling much better soon! Thanks to all who prayed for me and encouraged me this semester because I couldn’t of done it without you. In the end it will all be worth it!
Glad u made it through. I am taking a semester off of grad school. I go back to work Jan 1st. I am a 33 yr old teacher that was diagnosed Nov 1st. Been a crazy time. Was in ER Friday passing kidney stones. Just amazing how life can change so quickly. Hopefully you can inspire to be a true doctor and not just "practice" medicine. Enjoy the time off. Catch up on sleep!
