do you ever get upset over something that is so unbeliveably stupid, its ridiculous?
 
I was washing Jasons shoes today and i got so upset and almost cried!
I used to date this guy, and his shoes were always dirty, constantly, and i was always washing them, and he always had white shoes, this was before i got sick.  And in 11 years i have never had to wash jasons shoes, he just doesnt get in dirt, (hes such a girl!:D) and i thought, OMG i havent washed a mans shoes since before i got sick, and then it made me think of life, pre UC and all this mess and i got sad!  All over a pair of stupid dirty shoes!
Im fine now, that only lasted a few minutes, but does anybody else ever get sad over something totally dumb?

All the time. Usually it's hormones related when I react though.

You are one nice person to wash Jason's shoe. I hope he appreciates the wonderful wife he has. I would NEVER wash my husband's shoes. He made the mess he can clean it up.

I wish I could figure out how to avoid those upsets about totally dub things but I do it. The other day it was being in the kitchen all alone while four men watching TV and playing on computers and listening to music, waited for me to finish making dinner so they could come and eat. I made it and decided not to call them. I thought I'd wait and see how log it took them to get hungry and come on their own. 45 minutes. Yup I was reading at the table, with it all set and everything. I stayed ticked for a day.
Those things we keep trying to do get easier not because the feat gets easier but our ability to "do" gets better.

LOL i would have stayed mad too! i never cook until someone asks for it! otherwise that happens here, and even then, half the time jason leaves it for 30 minutes, saying the whole time, ill be there in a minute,UGH
And strangely, i like washing shoes,how weird is that???
Thats why i was always washing my ex's shoes, i cant stand when white shoes are dirty and that boy could walk on the concrete nowhere near a speck of dirt and have filthy shoes, i never figured it out!

Aw! *hugs*
Funny how some things just bring us back pre-sickness memories huh? There is a station on satellite radio that I listen to all the time "90's on 9" and it always manages to remind me of pre-Crohn's.

now don't take this the wrong way, summerstorm, but I CANNOT go to North Carolina without being reminded of my Crohn's:( I went on vaca with my husband about 13 years ago and all I did was puke from beginning to end!!!! I love the state and have been many times since, it's just a reminder of illness...I don't really look at my life 'pre' Crohn's since I've had it for so long now:(

Gosh! I hate it when Pre-UC life comes back to me. I was young and felt it. Now I feel like a grandma. I used to just jump into things and not worry. Now I have to plan meals and bathroom trips... and when I had the ileo, I would get worried about leaking and changing the wafer...

I am starting to get back to pre-uc life. I still worry about things and get depressed a lot. But at least I can do things without pain!

I also cried when I watch the health care bill getting signed. I can't tell you all the nights I sat up worried about insurance coverage, pre-existing condition clauses and if I would even be covered. I hope my kids never have to worry about that when they get sick...
