In my random browsing of the "interwebs" I have come across several lists of celebrities and other notable people who have Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis. It is nice to know that we aren't limited in what we can do or where we can go in life. Also it makes for an entertaining read, to kill a few minutes while sitting on the can ;) ...

Just came across your blog through a google search. Do you know about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet? It's a really effective natural treatment for Crohn's and Colitis that pretty much cures it in a matter of time. There is a book about it called "Breaking The Vicious Cycle" by Elaine Gottschall. I'm on the SCD and there's more information about it on my blog at www.comfytummy.com
