Crohn's & Groans

My life with Crohn's Disease...


What is Crohn's Disease?

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by inflammation of the digestive, or gastrointestinal (GI) tractCollectively referring to the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, and anus.. In fact, Crohn’s can affect any part of the GI tract, from the mouth to the anus, but it is more commonly found at the end of the small intestine (the ileum) where it joins the beginning of the large intestine (or colon).


Living with Crohn's Disease is not easy. I always thought my condition was quite mild compared to what I found on the internet, until 2018. I never knew I could get this sick.

I had to basically scrap everything I thought I knew and re-educate myself about everything from diet to exercise.

This is my journey, and I hope that by sharing my Crohn's story that I can hopefully help some of you out there.
