Jesus Christ, really? When I first diagnosed my GI said DO NOT go near the internet with regards to Crohn's, medication etc, I should talk to either my IBD nurse and/or GP.

He was telling me that one his newly diagnosed patient of his was "researching" Crohn's on the web and rang him in hysterics, crying, saying that she read that the majority of people with CD/UC don't "make it past the six month mark" ..... as in die....

I think the only reliable internet source is here, right?

My doctor told me I was "born to be awkward". Turns out he was a rubbish doctor and didn't really know what he was doing. He's now retired and owns a Whisky distillery in Scotland.

Dx. Sept '01 - Undefined Colitis
Dx. Feb '09 - Crohn's Disease

Currently taking:
Balsalazide 4500mg
Azathioprine 150mg
