This is ‘Crohn’s Anonymous’. Better or for worse. We’re Crohn’s. Crohn’s is not us.


Hi, I’m CrohnsAnonymous, and I’m a Crohn’s-a-holic. Whatever, right?

Like many of you, I have quite a story. I’ve always thought what could I do to help people and get paid doing it? So far, I’ve been a guitar/piano teacher and a Crohn’s disease advocate. So far, I haven’t got paid, at all, but that’s not why people set out doing things like this. If I could save one kid from getting discouraged and going down the ridiculous path I went down, and this blog, or something on this site kept that person from the pain and wasting of time, that makes not getting paid all worth it. 

I do swriting so I decided to learn blogging so that I could CONNECT with people similar to me, that is people with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), IBD (inflammatory bowel disease)  UC (ulcerative colitis) and other inflammatory disorders.

– Post Script: That is not a word, “Crohn’s-a-holic”. Just in case that wasn’t obvious by my sometimes weird idea of dry humor. It’s true, though, the saying from biblic times, “Laughter doeth good like a medicine”. Maybe n some of the medicines I’ve been on and off more than a few times over my nearly 15 years of having the disease, (joking) but I digress. I’ll talk a bit more about that later.   

But really, welcome to the site, look around, remember it’s still a work in progress, if you see anything you like, follow, or simply click like or share on social media. Oh, yea, leave comments if you feel like it…I read all the comments and usually reply. That’s one of the reasons I’m awake at 5:15am on a…well, you get the point.

— I’d like to welcome y0u all to “crohnsanonymous.com”. 

I suppose I should get into a little about my story and ‘time’ with Crohn’s disease..and I will. For now, I’m going to go work on a few other parts of the site… and leave you, for now, with this, as it’s s all I can think of to say at this juncture. I’m new at this, bare with me…but I’m confident that this is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing, at this exact moment; for what it’s worth. I believe in the power of communication, connections, and bringing together some ideas, solutions, problems, and idk what Crohn’s Anonymous is yet. Dunno. Not a an clue. But with your help, support, in every way you feel like helping by sharing,  being vocal about your story, stories of people you love, etc., I think this might one day be something to look back on and be proud you were part of.

Follow or Subscribe to receive a periodical. Remember when doing either that just receiving the confirmation email (which is sometimes found in the spam folder in your inbox) doesn’t mean you’re quite done. I know…but once you reply to that “confirmation email” you’re in. Or just swing by the site every now and then. As long as you’re happy, I’m happy. I’m just sayin’..hopefully you’ll enjoy what you read and it will add meaning to what people with a bowel disorder or auto-immune disease, for those with gluten sensitivities, inflammatory disease, stay tuned.
