How do you cope with Crohn's?

I have battled Crohn's disease for many years. It seems that there are levels of coping, depending on how severe or if you're in remission. But I do walk, that seems to help my stress levels. Prayer or meditation helps, too. If I'm really feeling well, I'll hit the gym! Then I feel even better about myself! Foods also depend on severity. I follow a strict diet when things are bad. Throughout the years I have learned how to "pick my battles" with foods. In the summertime, watermelon is a must! I try to not overdue it though. I do not eat high fiber foods in general. But everyone is different. Crohn's affects people differently as well. The doctor is a good resource since he/she knows your exact issues with the disease. Be sure that you have a good doctor that is patient and willing to work with you throughout your health journey! :)
