When you are first diagnosed with IBD/Crohn's disease, it can be quite an overwhelming time. There is a lot of information about but only some of which may affect you.

If you find you are really struggling, always seek medical advice and support and this will help you to be able to adapt and at least to understand how the disease impacts you individually.
I hope this helps.
