hey newcomer, welcome. just remember that there are thousands of crohn's sufferers out there that are doing fine. these types of forums tend to attract the ones that are very sick or having problems at the time they visit the site. so it seems like there is no hope,no help, etc... however, many new treatments are on the way and just being diagnosed you may benifit from these . people like me that are 20+ years into this and have had many surgeries etc. its kinda too late. so keep your chin up, look to the future with anticipation of good things . dont dwell on the illness or it may become a self fullfilling prophecy!
