    Great Article!! It does get easier, I didn’t tell my current partner that I had an illeostomy until 2 months into the relationship. He was fine with it, he often reminds me he dosent love me any less.

    Thank you for sharing this. My 16 year old daughter has lived with crohn’s for 6 years and it has been manageable until now. She is having surgery in one month due to a blockage. She is having 18 inches of her intestine removed and will need to have an ostomy as well. This article really cheered her up and relieved me a bit. Again, thank you xoxo

    These articles and educational vehicles are so helpful. They give you insight, real life experience and hope to better days when you love someone with Crohns. As you said this is just part of your fabric but not your finished product. The article was well written and received even better. Hopefully this article will find itself into the hands of someone in a new relationship with someone living with Crohns and makes “the conversation” that much easier for them both

    I thank you so much for this article! I just got diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis about 4 months ago and it has been a struggle! But God is faithful and I’m learning to Love myself regardless of a chronic disease. It’s so nice to see a blog of Color touch on this issue and it’s nice to have a community of Black women to talk to about similar issues with. Love to all of my UC and Crohns folks. We got this and we will persevere.
