I was diagnosed this year with crohn's after living for seven years not knowing what was going on. I was really starting to think it was all in my head. I live in a small town and have tryed to find some one to talk to but most people dont understand or dont what to hear about it. I just would like to just have some one to talk to that know what am going throw.

Welcome to HW. You will find many people on here for support as well as to help you with any questions you may have.

I still have my good days and bad btu I have learned to live with that by now. If you have any particular questions no matter how gross you thinkthey may be feel free to ask them here we may have had the same question(s) you have. Just make sure you have a good GI doctor
