   A little off topic I know, but sometimes you just need something uplifting with this disease!
 
 
  Today my new cleaning lady came to my house.  I came home early from work (ugh, sick again!) - right before she was leaving, she says, "oh, um,  whats up with your toilet seats? bleach wasn't even cleaning those things!" She then suggested I just start over and buy new toilet seats.  Little does she know this is the third toilet seat we've been through b/c I wasn't able to clean them either!  lol sooooo embarrased!
 
  haha I can only laugh at the situation.  Anyone else have something happen to them this week?

I was shopping in TJ MAXX and had to use the restroom. It was a last minute, rushed activity... so to speak.

I go in and there are three teenager girls, looking at themselves in the mirror. I had to go and I had to go badly. It was not an option to wait for them to leave. I was loud as any one of you can imagine. Probably louder now that I think about it. I knew how they'd react and sure as I predicted, they stopped talking and rushed out the bathroom.

I did my thing and left and they were standing by the door just staring at me. I had conflicting emotions. There was a small part of me that was embarrassed. The other part of me thought it was funny as all get out. I had never cleared out a public bathroom before.
Diagnosed in April 05, resection in May 05. Have gone through 6MP, Remicade and am now on Humira and Colestid.

I work in a bowling center with 40 lanes, spring break this week so we are really busy. As I sit on my "throne" I hear a voice saying, "Courtesy
flush please". Even the automatic air freshener didn't help!!

I was once doing a pill cam test and went and got all hooked up in the morning at my doctor's office. The girl at the front desk noticed that my drivers license was going to expire the next day, so my wife and I decided to go and renew it while I was doing the test. They put the belt, harness, and electrodes on me and we went straight to the Drivers license offices. There was the usual long line when we arrived but we noticed that people kept leaving line before they got to the counter. I also noticed that the security and employees kept staring at us. I got my license renewed very quickly and it did not even occur to me until I met my parents later that I had a ton of multi color wires coming from underneath my shirt with the belt and my dad asked if I had a bomb. I laugh about it now but am so glad that I did not get arrested.

The one day my grandson who is 2 was sleeping over the night and I was giving him a bath . I just couldn't hold it in any more and didn't want to leave him in the bath and go to the other loo where i couldn't see him, so ofcourse i proceeded to use the toilet in the bathroom where my grandson was. After a few minutes he piped up and said 'O Nanna, you pooping and farting,you stink Nanna!!', with a disgusted look on his face. It just made both of us really laugh, I suppose a little embarrassed in case he went down stairs and told everybody, but little ones are too precious and always come out with the best sayings without knowing!

when I lived in Florida, it was my roommates birthday. My parents came into town to visit from Pennsylvania, so it was an extra-special occasion. For his birthday and my parents being there, we went to a place called 11-Maple Street which is rated one of the top 10 or 20 restaurants in the United States. Very pricy, very elegant, and only seats about 50 people. I hadn't been feeling to good that week and I was somewhat gassy. about halfway through the meal, I remember trying to "let one rip." As I did, I thought there was a possibility something slipped out.. HAHA! I wasn't sure; but my face turned bright red and I started sweating at the table. Everybody started asking me if I was okay or not. I didn't move or talk much the rest of the meal. When it was finally time to go; to my surprise, it must have just been a "warm fart!" Luckily, I was safe.. When outside I told my friend what I thought I had done, and he couldn't stop laughing. His quote "You thought you pooped yourself at the finest restaurant we have ever been to!?"

There are alot of things about the DD that cause embarrassment. I actually have not gone to things d/t the noises my stomach makes! So many times I have been in meetings with patients, their families, staff & doctors when my stomach will make what I call "internal farts" noises. I (used) to work with brain injury clients & one particular day....the client looked at me and said "What the he..?" I blushed (which I do easily)...and said it was "internal". Here I am leading a meeting and my stomach keeps squeaking and everyone probably thinks I'm just sitting over there passing gas...
Then the patient says "That sounds like a you're letting the air out of a balloon slowly!"

Embarrassing.
Good thing about not working right now.

That just sucks....that's worse than embarrassing. Hope it happened at the end of your day! But you couldn't have been feeling too good. Amazing how we are so used to feeeling bad that we will just "push through" and go to/do things when other people would just be in bed for.

Artist Guy, I had one at Disney World. But I was too stubborn to go to the hospital. I made my family push me around in a wheel chair. Then again, I'm the Queen of obstructions, and we had my mom with us at the time and she was in a wheel chair too. We made a great site.

I watch a friend's 2 children, 7 months and 2 1/2. So today I changed the 7 month. Then I had to run to the bathroom before I could change the 2 year old. I put him down on the bed to change him and he sees his sister's diaper waiting to be thrown in the bag with his. He says, that's stinky. but really it was the bathroom I had just left that was stinky. They just had wet diapers but the entire end of my house smelled like a sewer.

My D is worse during the night, I will have to go to the bathroom at least 4-6 times. I don't turn on the light cuz I have learned that doing that wakes me up to the point where I have trouble going back to sleep. Basically I'm still half asleep, sitting down with elbows on knees and chin in hands, doing my business. 2 days ago I fell asleep sitting there, leaned to far to the left and knocked my head into the wall. That woke me up! Thankfully I leaned left, if I had leaned right, I would have fell into the shower.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 14. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal. 
Dr. wants to try Humira...STILL waiting on that! Not sure what is taking so long...

yes,
funny moments keep you going don't they. I am a nurse and one night i was working on a female orthopaedic ward when i became absolutely desperate to go to the loo. I was the only person on a ward with 32 patients and all the patients being confined to bed were asking for bed pans etc. Well, i deemed that i was more desperate than them but i couldnt leave the ward. I was just about to have a terrible accident when a doctor walked on the ward to look at a patient. I gratefully ran off the ward without the doctor realising that he was' in charge'. by the time i ran along to the loo, i literally had to throw myself at the toilet, it was truly terrible. After that i went home and was admitted to hospital the next day absolutely exhausted. If only the patients and doctor had known, they would probably have given me their bed.

I travel a lot with work. Long distances. Know all the stoppng spots. On a couple of occasions making it to a pit stop wasn't going to happen, so a quick pull over and run in to the bushes with TP in hand was required. One occasion didn't even permit that much time - it was do die - so there I was on the shoulder of a major highway perched between my two open passenger doors taking care of business while the truckers flew by only a few feet away. As I squatted there swaying to the concussions of speeding semis, not sure if they could see me or not, I couldn't help but laugh and think how appropriate the "any port in a storm" phrase was.

I have been so explosive with my diarrhea before that I got it all over the seat.  My funniest moment my kids found hilarious was we were eating out on vacation at a large place with a gift shop.  It hit me suddenly, and I got up quickly only to find one bathroom with a long line.  I was looking so pitiful I guess and had several people let me cut.  My kids were like and you paid them back with them having to go to the restroom after you!  They probably that you just had to pee!  I have always worried about getting pulled over trying to make it home to the bathroom on numerous occasions.

My husband and I hit up Sam's Club today after going out to brunch. I had a *feeling* I wasn't going to be able to make it until we got home and I was right!

I practically ran/walked to the bathroom in Sam's as soon as we got there. Didn't have time to look around, just grabbed an empty stall and went. AND? NO TOILET PAPER!!! *ARGH!!* haha Luckily I carry extra soft Charmin in my purse at all times for just such occasions. HOwever, the toilet automatically flushes, which I really hate b/c I am not done wiping before it goes down! anywho, just another start to a Crohn's week! haha

My mom had tummy troubles too and used to get tortured with barium enemas where they would blow air up there and tilt you practically on your head. Thank God for CT scans, right? Anyway, she was on the table and kept telling them she had to "go" and they kept telling her to hold on. Well, they finally let her up and she said she crapped on the floor all the way to the bathroom. She came home and just giggled b/c those little girls that kept making her hold it had to clean it up. My mother came home and just laughed about it. She had a good sense of humor, God bless her soul. Lucky for me, I inherited her GI system. LOL. She's probably laughing about that too!

Hey everybody,
This is my first ever post :)

I have had many embarrassing experiences since I have had Crohn's at only 19 years old lol. Right now I can only think of one off the top of my head as Im am really tired. It happend last night actually, after finally finishing my business on the toilet at 2 in the morning I struggle back to my bedroom and ended up headbutting my TV when going to lie on my bed! It didnt hurt until after I woke up with a bad headache which distracted the pain away from my bum haha. The TV also suffered a bit of *pain* aswell... a huge crack right in the middle! Have to get a new one soon :(
I'll post more when I think of 'em :D

ok so picture the abdominal fistula ( stop me if youve heard this), size of a pencil and going strong for about 3 years, that sucker would put out a water bottle of goo whenever it felt like it. i could chug a water and it would come out all warm and squirty.. so we are on vacation in Idaho, we had just eaten at a Sonic drive in.. i went to the rest room cause i knew i was gonna blow. sometimes i could aim into the toilet. i unhooked my abdominal binder that held the 2-3 ABD bandages ( they are 8x10) and there she wentshot about 4-5 feet straight out! hit the wall splashed all over the inside of the stallon the floor etc.. i tried using my spare bandages that i always had in my back pocket, soaked them right through. it finally stopped. but needing more bandages i had to leave the rest room to get my wife outside the door, (she had more in her purse) i fell it coming again and couldnt get back to the stall and took a shot acroos the bow of a dude at the urinal. he is so surprised he jumps while peeing, it goes all over the floor too.i grabbed a hand full of those continuous pull paper towels they got in wall mart and head for the door. i i went and told the manager what had happened and offered to clean it up if they gave me the supplies. told me nope legalities would not allow me to do it. i assume the poor cleaning person quit that day... ive never been back to that walmart. im sure they have a security photo of me. then there was the time.......
