Hi there,  I'm Paul I have crohns disease and I wear a stoma bag. I'm here to find out more about disability  issues  and to maybe offer any advice to people with the same problems as myself

    Hi Paul, my daughter died so I look after my teenage grandson who has Crohns too. He is in a lot of pain when he has to move about. He gets disability benefit for this and because of high level of accidents. He has to use a taxi to go anywhere as  waiting about for public transport is not possible.  You have to explain what problems you have. Crohns is very unpleasant but the disability people need to know how it affects your daily life. Hope you have a happy new year.

    Hi @paulyvous - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining, 'tho I'm sorry to read that you have Crohn's. It is good to read that you hope to help others here, which is what this community is all about. Please look around the forum, perhaps using the 'All groups' link on the right & join in any discussions. Please say if you have any questions.
