Avoid Common Mistakes When You Have Crohn's
Mistake No. 6: You Don't Get Support for Crohn's
Make sure you don't let yourself feel isolated because you have Crohn's.
"I think it's important for people to understand that they're not alone, there are other people who have these diseases," says Joshua Korzenik, MD. He is director of the Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis Center at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Join a Crohn's disease support group, where you can share experiences with people who've gone through the same challenges. To learn about support groups in your area, contact the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America.
