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.
