Review for Short Bowel Syndrome Foundation, Inc., Lincoln, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For 44 years I never ever met, or even heard, of other people with SBS or SBS symptoms and my doctors were often at a loss on how to help me. Since birth I have had to deal with this disease with only the support of my mom who did her very best but couldn't understand why I never got better. In desperation we searched the internet for any kind of information on SBS and how to live with the symptoms, esp. the mental health aspects. Finding the Short Bowel Foundation's facebook support group for adults was a crucial turning point for myself and my family. Andy and the members of the group have provided me with the information and emotional support that I had been looking for all my life! The day I found the SBSF was one of the best days of my life! I have participated in many many health and support groups and the ones run by the SBSF are the best by far.
