    Hi @elaine1963, and welcome! Sorry to hear that you had to leave your job and that you're feeling so unwell. I'm sure you'll know of Crohns and Colitis UK who have some great support and guidance on coping, and you might also like to chat to @Nasmamu, @milkmaid and @Judyb. We have lots of community members with bowel diseases, so I hope it helps to at least know you're not alone.

    In terms of financial support, the online benefits calculator is a great place to start: you just add in your details and it'll tell you what you may be entitled to. Hope this helps!

    Hi @elaine1963
    Sorry to hear about your medical problems. I have had crohns since 2006 and have been through the run of emotions you are probably going through. There IS light at the end of the tunnel i promise you. I got so bad i was minutes away from suicide but now although life isnt perfect its much improved. Any questions please feel free to ask. And please stay strong.
