well i am due for my remicade treatment this coming friday and all hell has broken loose.I do Home health and was driving down the road when i got the urge.I pulled into the first place i found and made a mad dash to the restroom and didn't make it.I had to dispose of my undergarments and clean myself up.On my drive home my nurse called to see how i was doing.I just dont know how much more i can take of this.I understand what the others say about the restroom experiences.When I was in the restroom some ladies came in and they were talking all about what was going on in there.They don't understand that we can't help it.

Hey mom, most of us can relate to this and I bet even "normal" people have had this happen when they get a "bug". I have used containers in my car for this very emergency, and have had to toss the undies many a time. Usually I can relate my accidents to foods I shouldn't really eat, like wine or strong veggies. Don't despair, you are not alone. I even carry perfume samples with me to freshen the air, lol.

Not alone,,,you bet..In fact that is one of the many, You may be a crohnie ,IF, statements. I think its number 12 in the handbook. Yep, #12, if you have ever had to throw your drawers away in the dippy dumpster behind Whally World, you may be a crohnie. The old strike a match trick works well for odor control and maybe Tinglebell's perfume samples. The main thing is , dont get down on yourself, its not your fault. You are doing the best that you can, and YOU WILL GET BETTER. I hope its soon too. Take care and big ((((Hugs))))...

I want to assure you that it is perfectly normal for someone especially with our disease to have this happen. In fact lets see I think I have throw away at least 8 pairs in an accident situation and I have been dx for 3 years come June.

Thought I would chime in...Have been in that situation so many times I would hate to guess!  I have thorwn away so many undies I couldn't count.  This has happen while out somewhere and it happens at home a few times a week!  One plus is I never have old, worn out undies; they usually get thrown away before they reach that point. Hope you are better today!

(((((HUGS))))) You need some hugs. Yes, indeed, we have all been there - many times. I learned the hard way. It never even ocurred to me that I could carry spare undies, wipes, a roll of t.p. and a change of clothes in my car. Now I "never leave home without it". Don't be discouraged. And don't worry about what other people say about the bathroom. In my less-mature days I made a comment about the smell of a bathroom once and a very wise-beyond-her-years friend looked at me with disdain and said, "It's a bathroom! It's SUPPOSED to smell in here." Shut me right up. And taught me a huge lesson. Keep your chin up Mom.
