  1. Thanks for pointing me to these. I’m a blogger with Crohns, but I don’t blog about my Crohns, especially since I was diagnosed after I started writing. It can be very isolating sometimes, mostly because I am too embarrassed to discuss life wtih Crohns. I look forward to exploring these.

  2. I have been thinking about starting a blog about my Crohn’s journey for a long time! When I was diagnosed I found it difficult to find information other then that off medical sites. I plan on telling tales of my journey, try to help other with food ideas and I would love to be considered part of a community where we can help each other out.

  3. Lauren, I love your blog. I do not suffer from this disease, but I recently got involved with the CCFA Team Challenge here in San Diego. I’m running the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon in November 2015 to support Crohn’s & Colitis. I’d LOVE your assistance (and your audience) in helping me reach my fundraising goal. Please view/share my personal page. Good luck on your journey and I’ll continue to keep reading.

I hope you reach your goal, but your spirit, goodwill and intentions are all that truly matter; so in my opinion, you have already reached your goal! Thank you for your support, and I will make sure to share your story! Best Wishes! Lauren

  7. Hello everyone.
    It’s my first time really talking about my plight. 1st i have crohn’s but also I’m a TB carrier, so that means no Humara or any of different derivatives of such drug. So i have moved to Oregon and have started on cannabise, high CBD and the strieght CBD oil. I’m doing very well but now have a hard time finding a job.
