Yes, you can tell you are a Crohnie when you measure your poop and coin new phrases like "hot dog poop".
I love this! I know my dear husband gets so tired of hearing about
poo all day long!! (He is so patient!) I love that we can all come on here and describe it freely and
Newbie- "hot dog" sized poop sounds normal to me, but then I havent had normal poop in about 2 years... As for the ribbon stuff you mention, when I have this it usually seems to have kind of straight edges (almost more cylindrical??) rather than the rounded kind... maybe that will help. Maybe about the thickness of 2 lightswitches, for me.
Thank goodness we have eachother to talk about all this stuff!!! :)
