Just wnated to welcome you to the Healingwell Family. I have Crohn's Disease too, and can totally relate to the depression brought on by life with a chronic illness. Come back often and let us get to know you and you get to know us.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
