Amber C. recently made a comment on one of my posts about how alienating it can feel when one adopts SCD. She’s right, certainly, and I’m working on a post to discuss this. But I think it goes a lot deeper than that. IBD itself can be pretty darned alienating!
But one young software developer is doing something about it. Sean Ahrens is preparing to debut his new IBD-specific social networking service, called Crohnology. It’s still in beta and by invite only, but you can request an invite on the home page. I’ve requested mine, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this new service has to offer.
