Crohn's and Colitis Self-Help Book Feedback

If you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis, you are invited to participate in a research study doing an initial evaluation of a self-help treatment for people with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.  The purpose of this research is to determine whether a cognitive behavioral therapy self-help workbook is acceptable and interesting to people with IBDs.

Once you agree to participate, we will send you an electronic copy of the workbook.  We will be asking you to read the self-help workbook over several weeks and then answer some on-line questions about your reactions to the book.  

You will be asked to give your opinion about several aspects of the workbook, including how relevant it feels to you, how well it explains the concepts and the exercises, and how likely you think you would be to use the workbook.  We really want this book to be helpful and strike the right tone, and we want very much to hear any suggestions you might have for improving it.

If you’re interested, please send an email to ***@**** indicating your interest. You will be sent a survey link and the first part of the workbook within 48 hours.

I like to help out with these sorts of things. I have had colitis since I was a child and would love to help but I don't know if I would still qualify to partake in this workbook. I have an ileostomy now, but my rectum is still diseased. I don't deal with the symptoms as often anymore, but it has only been a year since my surgery.

Let me know?

I have had u.c. for over 15 yrs; am now on remission. I take Asacol pills with every meal, and Salofalc (in the rectum) every  night. age: over 70, with  difficulty pressing in the Salofalc with my hands, so I use an ordinary calking gun (Walmart) (I tie the tube with a camping strap) (be carefull, go very slow so as not to do damage to the gut)

I believe my remission came about only after many years of treatment, & maybe, & only maybe because by using the gun, I empty the salofalc cartrige completely, & again ''maybe'' because I no longer eat breakfast (let my gut rest) I drink a large glass of cold water when getting up, which makes me ''go'' tothe toilet, & empties my gut.
