I was just diagnosed with Crohn's 3 months ago and had so many questions. I found this site and you all have answered most if not all of my questions. You must all realize that as you express your problems you, at the same time. answer other's questions. Your individual input gives both you and others information and real life experiences to make our concerns seen routine. I have gone back over the last 322 pages of questions and replies. Thank you all for your participation in this site and please be aware that many others like me may not post but will be learning from your experiences. I am now on Pred, Colazal, 6MP and start Remicade next week. Thank You All, Frank

322 pages!!!!! Your poor eyeballs must be sore LOL...I always forget there are many that lurk (as I did before I joined in what feels like a lifetime ago) and I couldn't have said it better than you Frank, there are definitely pros to having the internet and finding help from real people living with awful diseases and conditions.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

I agree.  This site is my lifeline - it keeps me sane. I refer to all of you as my support group.  Still can't get my daughter on there.
