Crohn's Disease

I just found out I have Crohn's

Getting diagnosed with Crohn's disease is a nightmare. First, you have no idea what it is. Second, it sucks. If you've just been diagnosed, use these daily writing prompts to better understand what you should know about your disease.


Keep your face always toward the sunshine—and shadows will fall behind you.

That's a quote from Walt Whitman. Sounds like Crohn's, right?

What happens after your doctor gives you the bad news

When you get diagnosed with Crohn's disease, it can be depressing.

Many doctors aren't able to clearly explain or understand what you're about to go through. And that sucks.

Start by learning more about the disease

In these prompts, we'll help you through the early days of your chronic illness.

We'll help you process your emotions, learn your fears about medications, and try to make you feel optimistic about your future.

The good news is there are ways to stay positive.

Don't forget about your happiness

Although Crohn's is a tough cookie, it doesn't have to be gloom and doom.

You can still enjoy life.

Many people live with Crohn's and are able to function a normal life. It's not easy, but it can be done.

When you get done with these, you might want to try our daily writing prompts for Crohn's depression.
