This paper reports a component of a larger study how adolescents adapt to chronic illness. The condition in question was Inflammatory Bowel Disease(IBD), a meducak term used for two donitions, ulcerative colitis and Chrohn's disease. Ulcerations appear on the bowel and digestive organs, which result in urgency to defecate, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain and loss of energy.
