I was diagnosed last March 2011 with Crohns. Started researching everything and anything to try to help myself. Followed doctors recommendations Entocort and Pentasa for several months. Feeling horrible and couldn't eat. The medicine didn't seem to help. Started following the SCD Diet and slowly but surely started feeling better. Found and alternative doctor who believes in LDN and that seems to be helping with no side effects. There are some days where I actually feel like my old self again before the diagnosis. When someone is first diagnosed, at least for me my mind was racing and wondering what to do and how to get it all done. I guess I wanted to do everything quick so I could start feeling better and moving on with my life. Now I have settled down some, still do all I did before, I am a mom, wife, I work part time, still do all the household responsibilities and in my spare time try to pay it forward. If there is someone online who needs support or needs someone to talk to you then I try to listen. I was always told I was a great listener. If anyone needs help please go to www.Crohnsdad.com. This person has helped me through the whole year of my ordeal. There is so much information at this site.
