I was recently diagnosed with what doctors believe is Chrohn's disease. I'm having a difficult time coping with it. I am on 500 mg's of pentasa and it doesn't seem to be helping much. I am an avid equestrian and have trouble getting up in the morning to go riding. Are there any suggestions anybody can make as to how they cope with this awful disease?
The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America offers support groups throughout the United States. See http://www.ccfa.org/chapters/
