I have my moments of struggle and when my IBD gets me down. When I can't eat with my kids because I'm on the elemental diet, moments when slapping on the facepaint is a struggle because I'm so exhausted or in constant pain, moments when my husband takes me out for a romantic dinner and eats alone whilst I'm stuck on the restaurant loo.

Times like that, I'm glad I'm able to talk to someone at the charity - it helps to know that together, we can work to make a difference and help others to find their inner strength to face the future - it isn't always easy.

If you have IBD or have someone who has - tell them to contact Crohn's and Colitis UK; there's friendly help and support available for all ages, with understanding people at the other end of the telephone line... just call!
