I was wondering how ya'll explain our disease to someone who asks? I don't know how detailed to get, and alot of times I feel as if I understate what we go through. On the other hand you have people who I guess mean well, but have horror stories of people they knew who died from it. I don't know how to strike that middle balance of helping them understand but not freak them out. How do you guys answer the question what is Crohn's? Tomorrow is our first on line chat at 7 est, hope many people can perticipate!!
