Hello!!!!

Just joined this forum.
Would love to just chat with others. I was diagnosed with crohn's 20 years ago now, Just wondering where in the world everyone is? I'm in the UK so far I've seen a lot of people on here are in the USA.

Howdy Charlotte, welcome to the group. I'm real new here too but I was just very recently diagnosed. I'm in New Mexico, USA. There some good people on here that will definitely have some good words for you. If you are comfortable doing it, you should make a signature that has some of your info like meds you've been on, what's worked and what hasn't, any other problems you may have, things like that.
