Living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis (UC) can be unpredictable. When things can change from day to day, you may feel hesitant to make plans or leave home. But don’t lose hope that you have the power to make changes in your life. Be your own best advocate. Partner with your healthcare team. Get on the treatment plan that’s right for you. Build a strong support system.
Find ways to explain your disease to others, get travel tips, see advice on how to manage stress, and more.
Stay positive, keep looking forward, and try not to focus on the negatives.
I don’t think it’s anything to hide from. It’s who I am, it’s a part of me. I have to live with it.
