Welcome to Healingwell. As you have already seen we have some great folks on this forum all trying to live with this darn disease too.
Remission varies for all. Being that you are newly diagnosed I will tell you that in the beginning it is the hardest for most, because it takes awhile to find the right treatment for you. Diet is pretty individual for most of us too. I live on a low residue diet all the time and that works really well for me. You might want to google it to get some diet ideas.
Hang in there better days will be ahead for you. Right now its just a little hard until they figure out what the best treatment for YOU will be.
