 Just a few ways you new guys can tell.
 
you may have crohns if:
you can run, unzip, unbutton, untie, and unbuckle all at the same time
you buy Oxiclean in 5 gallon buckets
Mike Rowe refused to clean your toilet for the "Dirty Jobs" show
you dropped your ring in the toilet , fished it out and now they want to show it on, " Worlds Deadliest Catch"
 you feel faint when someones says," Oh Crap"
your neighbor calls his dog, "Spot" and you cover your behind
the people at the fertilize factory next door have made complaints about the smell coming from your house
your cat tries to bury your drawers
your dog wont smell your butt
you can clear a crowded room without yelling , "Fire"
orrrrrrrrrrrr
If you have ever passed gas that killed you pet parakeet, you may be a crohnie
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

How about:

You're not impressed with Jackson Pollack as you feel do at least as well on any given trip to the bathroom.

You've ever had to reassure a brand new radiology technician that he/she will do fine.

You can use the fine line between need-to-know and TMI with your boss like a ninja.

You can judge the volume of any given bag of white fluid at a glance.

You've fantasized about having a time machine for the express purpose of hunting down whoever developed Prednisone.

Thanks for this post Sniper it is so funny! It really cheered me up! We should have some funny stuff like this more often.

 

 

….you talk about the most disgusting stuff like diarrhea, bloody stools and gas and don’t get embarrassed

 

….you check your poop when you go to the bathroom to see what came out :)

 

….you take handfuls of pills at a time

 

 ... you pay Doctor bills on a  monthly basis

…you might be a Chronie!

...other people (spouse, relatives, room-mates, friends) ask you to check their poop because they think something might be wrong - and you, of course, oblige with no problem.

...you can swallow 15 pills in one swig of water

...you know more about meds than your pharmacist

I can't think of anything else right now, but these are great! Good for a laugh.

You've ever "accidentally" let out a silent-but-deadly just to hurry the meeting along or for revenge on the guy who always says "just one more thing" when everyone else is ready to go.

You've had to explain to a doctor the patients' slang for symptoms or procedures - for his own specialty.

You've ever argued with a store clerk that "employees only" doesn't apply to you and offered to call the cops for them, cuz you're going in. (for those of us in states with Ally's Law). Corollary: You've ever had to educate a cop on both the law and medicine at the same time in a 7-11...

Your family and friends have fitted body armor and battle plans for those times they have to go Prednisone DEFCON 1 again.

You take "stain resistant" pants as a personal challenge.

You feel like the Salad Shooter food processor really understands you...

When you provide free education sessions to the head of the ER (Setons 101 show-and-tell).

When you are happy you have setons.

When the ER docs admit you are too complicated for them to treat (!)

When you actually start seriously considering infesting your self with hookworms! (which I still am).

    You might be a chronie if :
 
      You know more medical jargon than any Resident doctor at the local hospital
 
      You are afraid to go through security at the airport for fear of tripping radiation detectors!
 
       You start glowing in the dark
 
     You start thinking your nurses & doctors are actually bug-eyed aliens in disguise only interested in anal probes!
 
        You are NOT amazed at what someone can live through!

yeah  You know you're a Crohnie if....
 
Scrubbing Bubbles go on strike.
 
The Tidy Bowl man leaves a "Dear John" letter.
 
You can strip the bathroom wallpaper doning only a gas mask and closing the door.
 
You own 95% of the stock in the Preparation H company.
 
You wish "someone" would come out with sexy diapers! Really!
 
You go into a screaming fit during blood draws just for self amusement watching the tech panic.
 
Your are considered the world class cup holder of the Indy Hospital Walking Rounds at a whopping .5 miles an hour post-op while owning up to your favorite pit crew IV pole.
 
You actually yearn for applesauce, plain rice, water and bananas on a regular basis.
 
You can fart louder than any cow!
 
Your plumber is convinced you eat concrete quick set as a topper for your oatmeal.
 
And.....you spend the wee hours of the morning with great people like us!

...you run the tap at full blast just to drown out the crapping noise.
...at work, you let out a long stinky fart and run away.
...you can wipe your butt even if you didn't poo and find some any time of day!
...you see your undigested lunch bits in the toilet less than an hour after you ate it.

AND ...you look pregnant, but you're a guy!

You know your a crohnie when:

You can shimmy out a car window of any size if the door gets jammed!

You have completed a Zen garden using kidneystones!

You are considering writing a Traveler's guide to Restops & Bathrooms of the World!

You know a ratings system for it!

You actually snicker when people gasp & leave a restroom!

You have your own gurney reserved at the local ER(s)!

LOL. Every year, but I see some new ones!
