Storyboard Text

  • I suppose my anxiety was building because of starting high school in a month. But, my social anxiety levels were also rising. As an ambivert, I'd started becoming more introverted. Even becoming reclusive.
  • 1 Month
  • Soon enough, the summer was drawing to a close, and my birthday came around the corner. My birthday is on July 29th, that being said, it didn't help.
  • 14
  • On top of that: all of a sudden, I'd started having gut-wrenching abdominal pains, especially after meals. At first, my mom just thought they were regular "lady pains," but then I started dropping weight like crazy.
  • ?
  • 120 to 100 lbs in Two Weeks
  • After a few ER visits, some of which the doctors practically called me crazy to my face-I finally got an appointment with my GI doctor. Soon enough, I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. And this disease isn't exactly the most glamorous thing in the world. There's lots of pain, a lot of fatigue, inconvenience, and being miserable.
  • ER Doctor
  • You're Crazy!
  • No! You're not!
  • GI Doctor
  • Obviously, officially being sick didn't help. My box started building it's walls. And mentally I went down. Freshman year for me was horrible.
  • Freshman Year
  • By January 2015, I had to have surgery. A bowel resection. I had about a foot of my intestines taken out-it was a pretty intense surgery. There's only 3 (students) in the school who know this. When people asked why I was gone for a month, I just said I had my appendix out. Other than the 3 people, nobody knows the truth, except for teachers and administrators of course.
  • PAIN
  • January 2015
