An interactive 24 hour experience to immerse yourself in some of the challenges that people with Crohn's or Colitis face every day.
Crohn’s & Colitis UK have teamed up with pharmaceutical company Takeda UK to create In My Shoes: 24 Hours with Crohn’s or Colitis - an immersive app that will allow people without the conditions to experience first-hand what it’s like to have Crohn’s or Colitis.
From depleting energy levels to managing pain, from rushing to the toilet to juggling work and a social life, the app will allow friends and family to see first- hand how the condition can affect every part of your body, and every aspect of your life.
Don’t worry - after 24 hours they can return to their normal lives. But they’ll do so with a deeper understanding and appreciation of what you have to go through each and every day.
“It was thought provoking. I live with someone who has colitis and will have more empathy and awareness now, especially about the associated joint pain and fatigue. A useful tool that is easy to use, and certainly makes you think.” Sarah, whose husband has Colitis.

Does this app actually DO anything?
I added this app today, turned on all my notifications and sounds, set a start time, and it didn't do ONE SINGLE THING all day.
Not one notification.
I can't even give this one star, but, as the mom of a daughter with severe Crohn's who almost died and needed a life saving colectomy, I hope you get it fixed because it would help others understand what people with IBD go through.
This is a great idea - please get it fixed!
