Since this website is so helopful for me and so many other people, I was wondering - does anyone belong to support groups in their area? When I was first diagnosed my dad suggested I find one and I dismissed the idea as something I would never do, too personal, who wants others to know I have Crohn's, etc. Fast forward a few years when the disease is still here and I realized i could probably benefit from it. When I get my Remicaide there are 6 lazy-boy recliners that are always full - everyone can talk or just sit and listen and I didn't realize how much I got out of that, out of commiserating with others who are in a similar situation to mine or hearing regular things about their lives.
I just switched drs and have a new place for my remicaide - it is a tiny room with two chairs. Very isolated and depressing. So I am thinking about looking into a support group to check out.
I live in the Northeast - does anyone go to any local groups in their area? i woudl love to hear your experiences, good or bad!
