As a Crohnie I really HATE when people ask you why your so weak or tired looking and then you say..."cuz I've been gone #2 like 20x's today" ......and then they will say..." Oh, that's tooo much information!!!" like I'm gross! Well, I guess I am gross then...but it's the truth!
I just want to say, "If you don't really want to know....don't ask!!!"
Oh and one more...I have to pick through my food for food I can't have...and people will say, "You take all the good stuff out"....hahahahaha if they only knew I'd love to eat that stuff.... but CAN't!
