Yes, I know what you mean.
I am tired most of the time too. But only because I can't sleep at nite cause I'm always getting up to use the toilet. Or its the butt pain I get sort of like I got a splinter up there. Its annoying as hell and keeps me up most of the nite.
Suggestion: you may be low on iron...get your blood work done if you haven't as tiredness is one good indication of lack of iron.
I know I have had to have iron infusions in the past because I am anemic. [SP?]
I think crohns people have a hard time digesting protiens. I know I usually stay away from red meat - only if it is very lean and not fatty then I may try it.
Good Luck! :O [yawn]
praying for a good night's sleep and a happy bottom!! :o]
