Patient's perspective

"When you think of someone with Crohn's Disease (or IBD in general), what do you 'see' first? Do you see the person or do you see the disease? Tough question isn't it? For the longest time I considered myself as a person with a disease -- not the other way around. I refused to be defined by my Crohn's Disease and would get quite defensive if someone saw the disease first. ... I am not just a person or just a disease -- I am both." post from Stephen on Chronology
