Okay here goes, the past couple days I have felt horrible. Well tonih me and 4 other guys were suppose to have a overnight at our store to get the warehouse cleaned up, my idea. Well I got there at 7 and between 7pm and 12am, suppose to be there till 4am, I was in the restroom 4 times and just kept feeling worse and worse. Well I ended up leaving early which in itself make me feel worse, im letting them down. They said it was okay, that they understand, but I know they don't and I think that they feel Im "faking" it. It just makes me feel even worse for leaving like that and it's not the only time thanks to this disease mad

Hi I know it is hard sometimes to put health first but it is necessary at times. Hope you get to feeling better soon. At least you wern't leaving because you didn't want to be there some people don't have much interest in work and make up excuses to get out of it I am sure you are a good worker .lol gail

I just saw my ex-sister-in-laws for my sons wedding, and although I hadn't thought of it in years my "using the CD/diarrhea to get out of dishes, cleaning, etc." was brought up. It brought back all the old hurt.

The fact is, there's nothing you can do about them believing you or not, you have to remember it's their problem, not yours. They (many people) may never understand. My sister-in-laws asked me if I still have problems "you know, down there, with the bag and all...."

Try to keep a sense of humor about it, and just keep on keeping on.

Unfortunately, people who don't have this disease don't know what goes on with us. I wouldn't wish this upon anyone but I wish that people around me would have to deal with what we deal with for just 1 day so that they understand and are not just plain ignorrant.(Excuse my spelling) Remember that you have to take care of yourself first so that tomorrow has a chance to be a better day. I am sure you are there when you feel good so there should be no reason to feel bad when you are sick and can't be there. Feel better soon!
