Hi! My name is Kennedy, but you can call me Lainey since we’re friends :P. I started this organization 2 days ago on September 21, 2018 by starting an Instagram account (@crohnsandcolitisus). My hopes have been surpassed and I’m already almost at 100 followers! My goal is to educate the community and people outside the community about our invisible illnesses. I will be daily (as best as I can) blogging about IBD, Anxiety and OCD. My first real post, tomorrow, will discuss what experts think the relationship between IBD and anxiety is! I also want to support the community by making this a place where we can all come together and talk about our struggles and successes. Finally, I want to create a donate page and host fundraisers so I can help researchers in my community and all around America fight for a cure! You can go learn about my fight with Crohn’s and mental illness in the “about” page and you can follow my daily life on Instagram (again @crohnsandcolitisus). I love you guys and see I will see you tomorrow for a look at the relationship between IBD and mental illness! Question of the day: What is YOUR hypothesis as to why so many people with IBD also have a mental illness? Leave your answers in the comments!
Educate. Fight. Support.
