Well I had a horrible reality check this evening. I had been fighting with the insurance company for the last two months to get my tysabri re approved. That being said I missed two infusions. Today I finally got my infusion again and everything went well. Now for the last 12 months I have been able to eat anything I want with now issue what so ever. Tonight I went out with a girl I really like and we went to a mexican resturant. No big deal as of late. Well after dinner my gut started rumbling, I put it off as nothing. We went to see a friends house in the boons but when we got there I had to go!! Of course no working plumbing. So I went running into the woods... I didn't make :( We had to cut the night short and I drove her home. Most embarassed I have ever been shakehead

Oh, my heart aches for you. I know exactly what you are going through. I am divorced and back in the dating scene again. Needless to say, Crohn's has reared it's ugly head on some dates, which is mortifying. I'm sending big hugs your way. Blessings, Julie

Hi!  I went out on a first date with a man who "confessed" to having Crohn's disease, expecting me to become grossed out.  When I said "I have it too!" we spent the rest of the evening talking openly like people talk here on the forum.  The relationship didn't work out, but it sure was nice to meet someone who "understands".
How did it go with your date?  Are you still going out?

I had the same thing happen on one of my first dates with my exhusband. I hope your date was as understanding as my ex was.

Bummer of a story....I have had an accident like that on a date before, but fortunately it was with my girlfriend of five years, so she was more than understanding. In your case, I hope the treatment works out anyway, even if the girl does not. What I find interesting, is that women seem to tend to have a higher tolerance for things like that..due to an increased natural ability to empathize, perhaps.

After my surgery, while still healing, I met a woman in the hospital who had Crohn's disease too, and was going to need a surgery similar to what I had just needed. She was having trouble with the idea of having an ostomy. She is a gorgeous little lady, and just couldn't get over the idea of how it would look. I was able to help her doctors convince her the trade off would be more than worth it, and she had the surgery a month later. Since, than, her and I have talked about the disease and our own symptoms in very graphic detail. I wish I felt more connected in other ways, if so, I would totally try dating her....the idea of two people with Crohn's disease, and ostomies, together in a relationship, just seems really cool.

doesn't that just sound cool when you sing it?
