I am new to this forum and have been logging in daily to read about all the issues...I have to say that it's comforting to know that I'm not alone with this awful disease...reading about everyone else's problems and experiences has certainly helped me deal with my own problems...while I'm unable to commit to a crohn's suppor group at this time, logging onto this site certainly has I wanted to say thank you...the support and encouragement that comes from this site is truely amazing and inspirational...

yeah Yeah, and don't forget, goldy - getting to vent, just describing what you are going through, whether or not you have any answers - that is part of the healing process. You don't need to do it with us, but it is a good habit to pick up. wink
(Personally I have gone through phases of just lurking, because my brain fog is so bad. But it's still like coming in out of the rain. tongue)
