New Crohn's NEW
by: Annette Young

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that you have Crohn's disease. I know how scary it can be when first diagnosed. You can feel very alone.

The truth is there are many more people out there than you might think who are newly diagnosed, are feeling alone and afraid of the disease or who have had the disease for years. The sad thing is that people do not talk about Crohn's and that is because the very nature of the disease makes people feel embarrassed or isolated.

I hope that you are getting medical attention and are being treated. The first months can be difficult until they find medication that suits you but do not leave any change to symptoms or if you feel that the condition gets worse. It's too important.

Do keep an eye on your diet. It's important that you find out the foods that may affect the disease and make it worse. I attach a link that gives you a lot of information on this.

Here are foods that you should add into your diet:

Try to break the secrecy surrounding Crohn's and do not be afraid to share your feelings and symptoms with family and friends. Discuss with your work colleagues too. If others know what you are going through they will offer additional support.

I hope this helps and that you get much support from others.

Good luck,

Annette

My name is Paula and I have gone through 7 operations and almost a year of hospital visits to get my crohns under control. It has been over a years since I was given a clean bill of health. It was scary, confusing and I had no idea what was happening to me and why. I totally understand thay you have a lot of questions and it is difficult to find a doctor who will speak to you in terms that you understand. My email is paulah28@yahoo.com. Please feel free to contact me about any questions. I would be more than happy to help you in any way I can.

Until then, hang in there and keep your head high.
