I am hoping one of our members "Writer" will be along soon. They have alot of info on the enteral diet you are on. This is a really good way to get your Crohns quieted down though. It helps the bowel to rest and heal. I do think that you should call your doc though and see if there is any type of flavoring you can add, I think that might make it a little more palatable.
As for Crohns being a death sentence, you will feel like death sometimes, but it most definetly is not a death sentence. I have had this darn disease for nearly 35 years. I have 3 grown daughters, 5 grandchildren, an amazing husband, and been at the same job for over 20 years. There will be bumps in the road here and there, but for the most part you will have better days once they can get this flare back under control. The first flare is generally the hardest for us. I know I was the sickest when I was first diagnosed. Hang in there, once they find the right treatment for you, you will feel better. Whatever you do though, remember this is a chronic and incurable bowel disease and must be treated at all times, so always take some kind of maintainence med at all times, so you don't have to feel like this again. Good luck!
