exhaution, work, and crohn's

I have had stomach/bowel pain and trouble for the last two years. Finally last week they diagnosed me with crohn's. For the past two years I am always exhausted, to the point of being unable to do regular activities sometimes. Which has caused a lot of problems keeping jobs. I am 20 years old and have no one to help me, so I am looking for suggestions to help me be able to work full time. I have a job now but am finding it hard to get up, and to stay all day. can anyone help with ideas to make it easier to be able to work?
Also my doctor's last day was one day after my diagnosis so I don't have one to help me with this.

Help for Crohn's
by: Anonymous

Vitamin D3 deficiency is a major factor for Crohn's.
Try like myself taking the above dosage, but always
with a spoon of Flax or Fish oil, to optimize absorption. Vitamin D will give you energy. Eliminate sugars and replace with Honey
in everything! Honey is a mono-saccharides, and easily
digested by Crohn's afflicted bowels, therefore less
bacterial growth that causes inflammation.
Try also take 1/2 tspn of Manuka Honey, on empty stomach 1 hour before a meal. It heals any wound inside and outside the body!!! I tried it when I had
pain from Crohn's attack, and the pain was gone.($12 a small jar) but lasts for a long time.
Try to avoid smoking, and coffee only once a day or every other day!
Instead of coffee, to be alert and awake, put a dash or two of CAYENNE PEPPER
into 1/2 cup of warm water, or into salads, soups, any dishes. It does
wonders! It also takes pain away!!!

You will not regret implementing the above suggestions, as you are getting
them from a Crohn's sufferer like yourself, who is mature in years, and with
experience, and who has tried everything.
I have many more helpful suggestions for emergency situations.

If you don't try, you'll never know...

Check with your G.P. your thyroid level,
and hemoglobin level as well.
You might need Iron pill (better from vegetable
source), www.vitacost.com sells them cheaply - Item #CTL4026594. Take 3 a day with vitamin C - 500-1000 mg, for 3 months.

I would find a new Dr. right away. Go to a Crohns specialist if possible. The best thing you can do is get treatment. The reason you're tired is that with Crohns, your colon and intestines flare up, or get inflamed, this makes it impossible for the nutrients in the food you eat, unable to be absorbed in your system and fortify your body. Also, if you have internal bleeding, anemia is possible. Get treatment as soon as possible so your system doesn't get so weak that you can't function. When you do get to feeling better, keep up on your meds, your not better if your feeling better. Your just in remission. Your meds have got you there, so let them keep helping you.

Many Blessings.
