should the cabin become depressurized (spelling?) while flying, and you are stuck in the can when it does, two 02 masks come down! So you can finish your business and stay right there (probably until a flight attendant comes along w/ portable 02 to get you back to your seat).  After the flight that was on the news w/ the hole in it, I started to worry what would happen if I was in the bathroom when that happend.  (Remember, I'm a fearful flyer).  So I asked a pilot I know and sure enough, two masks come down in each bathroom.  Yay for us! Now too bad we couldn't use them for the smell.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).
