I was just diagnosed 3 weeks ago. It’s so hard and scary. I read about people having surgeries and I have been researching the side effects of all the meds. They all seem so scary. I had learned to live with my symptoms and have considered not doing meds to avoid the side effects. But even in these past few weeks Budesonide has made me feel human again. It’s a scary thing but its always so nice to know you aren’t alone.
