Crohns - Leaving The Seat Down

Patient Leader

Hi, I'm Vern, I'm from Canada and I have been living with Crohn's Disease for 30 years now, which means I haven't been "regular" for over half my life !! I started my blog as a "diary" and has been a great release for me. I try and make it humorous and helpful and it's also a place for me to display my artwork. Crohn's Disease is part of my life now and I take everything one day at a time, because you just have to and not let it run your life.

Although Vernon has lived through major traumas in the past 32 years, he never gives in; he is able to see through the pains to share a 'brighter' perspective for everyone.  — colin

Makes me laugh even though he's struggling sometimes as well; he's got a great attitude and outlook.  — Richard

Humorous and informative. “You might be a crohnie “ is a must read.
