I agree that it is GOOD and to be encouraged to use this Team for support. I don't have Crohn's myself ..... my late husband did, and I joined this team to enable me to better help him.

A lot of people don't/wont talk about this condition because it can be embarrassing. My husband was typical of that mind-set. He never realized how common it was, even tho' his own niece had been diagnosed with it a few years earlier. When he realized that a lot of others were in a similar situation it removed a lot of stress from him, and some of what I was able to discover from you guys helped him immensely.

I know that some people have lack of support groups farther than others. Some of us, it's just the traffic. 20 miles away can be a 2 hr drive or more. Me? I have a 17 year old car and I don't know where or when it will break down. Heck, I used to live where it was 7 hrs to a major city. I hated that!!!

I want here to be a support group no matter what. I, myself am dealing with many things. The removal of my gallbladder made some things I hated about my Crohn's even worse.

We all need support, and please feel free to post anything here.
