Heya

Hey all.
I stumbled upon this forum today and I thought it would be nie to have some people to communicate with who really understand what it's like.

I was diagnosed with UC 10 years ago; my diagnosis was changed to Crohns 5 years ago. I'm in remission right now, but I've had a crazy journey with surgeries and ostomies and remicade and more hospitalizations than I can count.

Welcome UNCKatie Glad you found us!
There are a lot of really nice people here on this site who do understand what it is like to live with UC and Crohn's. The part that I like is that its not all seriousness and depressing - we have laughs here as well.
If you have any questions, fire away! There will be someone here who can answer your questions. It also sounds like you have some valuable input yourself
Take care and I am glad to hear you are in remission!

I've had sever crohns for about 3 years. I'm now on humira and suffering from a bunch of side effects, the toughest one being shortness of breath. Has anyone else suffered from this. Any way to mitigate it?
