I do not actually have Crohns but I am romantically involved with someone who does. He has tried to tell me about what to expect when he has flare ups, but he doesn't really have any advice as to what he will need me to do for him.
If at all possible, I would love to have hints and suggestions for things I can do for him to make things a bit more comfortable. Perhaps if you can think about how you feel during the bad periods, tell me what kinds of things you want or wish for?
I have been searching the Net for such information but I don't seem to be wording my searches correctly because all I can ever find are web pages specifically for people who have Crohns, and it seems to be mostly about how to avoid the bad periods. I can't seem to find anything about how to cope with those times when they are actually occurring.
So if anyone can post their suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. In the meantime I might start trying a few other search engines. Thanks again for your time and consideration.
