One of the first thing my husband noticed at my crohns support group was that none of us "looked sick". We weren't thin and sickly looking like most people would expect. The only gal who was skinny was one who only has 4-feet of bowel left. Side effects from drugs suck big time. We have that going against us big time. I'm sorry that your feeling bad about your own situation. It sounds to me, however, that you are doing what you can and that's all that matters. I have no doubt you're a beautiful person inside and out. :)
