Good morning everyone,I hope that you all are feeling good today!
So,I have been having some remodeling done of my main bathroom,& I got a new potty!
My old potty was such a piece of junk.You had to hold the handle down to flush,& could only flush a small amount of TP because the drain in the bottom was so small,or you better hope that you have waders on....hehe
I actually bought an identical potty to the one that was in the house that I rented previously.I already knew that I liked it because I spent soooo much time in the bathroom there.
OH yeah,I also got some new ceramic tile put in & will be getting a new sink soon.
I just wanted to share my excitement,cause I know that most of you can relate!

bathrooms are important. I can't believe you could only flush a small amount of tp! How did you manage that? LOL

It's the most important room for Crohnies....I put up nice pictures in mine. Don't want it to feel so sterile since I spend so much time in there. What color is the tile? Do you have a separate "toilet closet"? A nice colour of paint would make it feel rich as well.

I hope you enjoy it tongue

Good for you! Bathrooms are the most important room in the house for CDers!!!

I have to say, I'm spoiled. We have 3 bathrooms in our house. We've been in this house for almost 9 years and my husband has redone all 3 bathrooms. Each one now has the super flush type. The ones that you can flush a dozen golf balls at a time. I haven't tried the golf balls, but I've put my fair share of TP down them and they work like a charm. The old ones didn't work worth a darn.

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

I also spend lots of time in the restroom, my wife suggested using baby wipes to clean yourself, (don't flush them) boy I feel and smell soooooo much better. I know it's gross, but us crohnies understand. Enjoy yourself.

P.S. They have travel sizes for the trips out of your home.

Crohnie 1985...I use the baby wipes that are flushable...just make sure it says on package "flushable", I've never had any problem with them and they are oh-so refreshing...haha.
