new here- looking to connect with others with crohn’s. been dealing with this for 7 years.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the National Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis Support Group group.

Hi @allanpar, glad you found us and sorry you are having to deal with this. Check out the ongoing conversations in the Crohn’s group here: http://thegiconnection.com/group/crohnsulcerative-colitis/

Let me know if I can help as you navigate the site!

Great- thanks for your help. really happy that this site is here for people like me. family and friends have no idea what I go through on a daily basis.

It is important to have a place where you can find support from people who understand what you are going through!

Welcome to the group; what is your status? Have you been able to control the crohns with diet or medicines?

control is an interesting word— to my friends and family I try to minimize the constant stress & discomfort. It is a balancing act, trying to keep up the best behaviors and treatments. And of course, I know there are others that are in worse situations and I am grateful in so many ways. Connecting with other people has made a big difference– knowing that I am not the only one struggling. thanks for asking charles.

I have had to think of this as defining a ‘new normal’– I have also found a lot of comfort in chatting with others who have this.

Same here; nice to connect; really appreciate Suburban Docs for setting up this forum. Makes me feel less alone and more supported.

Agree completely-these virtual support groups from the doctor make it so much easier to connect with others and share information .
