Sammies, I totally know where you're coming from. I hate approaching menus with that "what will hurt the least" mentality! It can really get me down sometimes, even though - as you said- we have so much to be thankful for. I worked next to an icecream shop for the last 6 months or so, and I can honestly say that it made me a little depressed every night when I would see all those people porking down icecream cones the size of their heads.
And I agree with Nanners. I know I should be going through some kind of counseling... I probably should have started when I first got diagnosed... but then... it seems like an inherent crohnie characteristic to internalize everything... to try and smooth it all out and make the best of it. And, if you read my previous post today... sometimes that tactic backfires and you explode and throw a wild tantrum. Or at least, that's what I seem to do. Probably not the healthiest way to deal with this stupid disease.
And Fitzy - I am a Post Secret junkie! I always figured my secret would be something like this:
"I'm 26 and constantly scared that I'm going to poop my pants." with an image of a really long line at a public restroom.
26f, dx'd CD July '05 after 6 fistula/abscess surgeries
No current chronnie meds, but I've tried just about
all of 'em!
Digestive enzymes, and probiotics only.
And, I'm pregnant with my first baby! Due around Valentine's Day.
