'Congratulations, you've got Crohn's!'
'You've just been diagnosed with Crohn's and right now you feel swollen,
But don't feel blue coz you've a dodgy colon!
The doctors and nurses will help you feel better,
So try not to be too much of a fretter.
It's hard when you hear this disease is for life,
But please, please do not reach for the knife.
You'll feel sick and sore and the pain may be tragic,
But some drugs today can work like pure magic!
Eating is tough and some foods are out of the question,
But if I may be so bold can Make a suggestion?
Take all advice given and don't be martyr,
Help truly is there from people much smarter.
Soon you'll feel better and learn to adapt,
When the route to your colon is more clearly mapped!
So take it easy for now, rest those weary bones,
For soon you will adapt to the wonders of Crohn's!'
