I have just been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I go to the bathroom frequently when I'm at work but I'm not going to let that stop me from working, so I'm trying to find foods that don't make me go to the bathroom a lot. Today I just found out eating fish help me a lot. I had no stomach pains or cramps and I have been drinking a lot of water. When I eat fast food, oh my goodness, I'm running to the bathroom like crazy.

I have had Crohn’s disease for 50 years, and 2 resections. Hospital visits and stays, medicines and diet help reduce pain and diarrhea. I have been on Humira now for 2 years and it has helped immensely. I have 2 children, one affected with Crohn’s and the other with ulcerative colitis and now has a pouch. One thing I have also done is to not let this control me. I have never given in and believe me I have had many days when you feel that you could just curl up and die. Fight it all the way.

I've had bowel problems since l can remember. My main problem is diarrhea with very occasional bleeding also only got professionally diagnosed in 2008. l started to get ulcers in my mouth. I went to a dentist and she recommended a colonoscopy as she thought it was related from my gut. It’s true that it was. Now l have Crohn’s disease. l'm in process of getting treatment with a specialist. l've been using my diet as a help -- high fiber, very little dairy, NO wheat products, fish oil, flaxseed oil and little stress. It all helps but is NOT a cure.
