Support: Inflammatory Bowel Disease

For many, IBD is a disease that stays behind closed doors. Often times, you may not know of anyone else who suffers from this disease because the symptoms can be embarrassing and are not exactly conversation-starters! By joining an online community (or by simply browsing the message-boards), you can maintain a degree of anonymity and privacy, while at the same time meeting many more people who suffer from IBS. Here you can share tips, stories, encouragement, and more.
