Caring for Crohn’s & UC: Year in Review

This has been a great year for Caring for Crohn’s, both on the blog and personally.

After toying with the idea for several months, I finally launched the blog in June. After a few months on Tumblr, the blog was merged onto WordPress and now here we are!

In just six months, I wrote 73 posts and the blog received over 3,600 views, and gained 19 WordPress followers, 50 Tumblr followers, 124 Facebook fans, and 175 Twitter followers. Thank you all SO much for your readership and support– this blog branched out beyond my wildest dreams and I am so appreciative of all of you who made that happen.

Herbert Smith, a 33-year-old Crohn’s patient, swallowed thousands of whipworm eggs suspended in a liquid solution over an eight year period. But after ingesting 2,500 of them in the first three months, most of his Crohn’s symptoms disappeared. Unbelievable!
