What is crohns?

I hear you ask,

Just listen to the moans

behind the cheerie mask!

And those awfull groans!

My what a dreary task.

Oh! the continual lure.

I think I'm beginning a criterion.

Why can't there be a cure??

Sundry other demanding sympton;

Can be associated with crohns condition.

Causing outbreaks of sympathy.

Theres some handy ammunition;

Combined! What a diagnostic symphony?

Frequency, foullness and infection.

And all is disharmony:

My body in full scale internal decay.

What a great dismay!

My psychology, Oh! how to keep at bay,

Unless all is disaray.

Psychological and biologicaly dying -

A cure please

And I'll stop crying.

An aweful disease that can

An awful disease that can only hope to be controlled through the use of medications. My question has always been about why there isn't more research on some primary deficiency in some area to begin with...(meaning before the inception of a Crohn's diagnosis). Because once the disease is full blown, it is, I am sure, difficult to distinguish which deficiencies are a result of the disease (and the medications for the disease), and which are true deficiencies.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I could not agree with you more. I think both the research and medications used in crohns is inadequate.
