I just wanted to say to everyone here that this is an awesome community! I have more than once come to this forum in my times of flares and remmission and have found an overwhelming amount of support and generosity from the members here. When we suffer from a disease that the rest of the world does not understand it is absolutley awesome to know there is a haven among you all that simply "get it."
Just being here genuinley makes me feel better. As a thank you to this community once I am on the mend and my energy level is back at 100% capacity. I will be volunteering time at the Local Crohns and Colitis foundation.
This may not be a lot but it is the least I can do to say thank you for the support that I receive from you all.

I think it's alot!!!! Aknowledgment is wonderful and I agree with you, this is a great support forum full of valuable information even based on experiances alone, let alone the great links people find and post here about the latest on IBD info.

And I think that it's great you're feeling so much better and able to volunteer your time at your local chapter for crohns and colitis, good for you and I hope you continue to do well.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

What a gracious thank you, your kind words mean so much. I think it's wonderful that you will be volunteering some of your time at your local C&C Foundation, that's awesome. Please take care of yourself so you heal quickly. Take care!

I am sure the people at the C+C foundation can use the help too. We all need a helping hand from time to time. Hope you feel better soon...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
