I just found a new online community for those with Crohn's.
I don't know if anyone else has heard of it or not, I haven't read anything about it in the posts before.
 
I joined earlier today and it seems to be a pretty decent site. Not nearly as awesome as this one though ;)

MMMNavy, if we all act as one , we could overload the sewer system...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
