People with IBD can live rich, full and productive lives.
Finding out how others cope with day-to-day life, as well as achieving their dreams, may help you to feel more positive about your condition.
Take a listen, watch or read about people's real life experiences - from getting diagnosed, managing and living with their IBD - these are stories that we hope will encourage and inspire you to lead your life the best way you can.
