Get Support

Crohn's disease affects more than a person's gastrointestinal tract. The uncertainty during flare-ups, the private nature of the disorder, and the constant mindfulness of nearby bathrooms can have a profound impact on a person's overall well-being. 

Many people find comfort in talking about their condition with other Crohn's patients, whether in person or through social media. This can help them overcome feelings of lonliness, as well as gain a broader insight into living with Crohn's disease. 

Equally important is providing care and support to someone with Crohn's disease. All of these aspects together can help ease some of the stigma, fear, and trepidation about living confidently with Crohn's disease.
