Good to see some Aussies here! May I ask which state/city you are in?
Do you know of any non-web support networks for Crohn's.. I considered joining something like this to try and share experiences, but to be honest I'm not sure I would go through with it.
It can be helpful. When I was going thru severe thyroid problems, I turned to people online in my area and then we started meeting every month. We didn't do much except talk, exchange information/doctors, and eat, but it was nice to know I wasn't alone and that it affects all ages/people from every walk of life.
