This aggrevates me till no end.
My sister things I am being pessimistic every time I bring up my son's Crohn's. She thinks I am thinking too far ahead and just because he had mild CD NOW does not mean it will get worse. NO SH** -- how HAPPY would I be as a mother for this to be the case?? That is why I am being PROACTIVE now, worrying, and trying alternative methods of treatment.
This is why I am so grateful for these forums. When I was so SICK from my IBD, I had nobody. I could barely get out of bed and I was so uneducated about the disease My bowel movements were pure blood and I was as white as a sheet. The Dr had no expression on his face, told me.. and walked out of the room. I thought it was a virus...From what I can see, my flare was 10x worse than my son's now.. and at the point I was sick the GI didnt even know if I had UC or Crohn's. Honestly, I still don't know until this day..
Anyway, I digress...yes, there are people out there who are SO RUDE who believe this is just an "issue" that makes you poop. I mean, really? And a healthcare professional saying this to you as well?
I have spoken to some of the rudest nurses in the past.. I really don't know why these individuals deal with people all the time.
Take everything in stride and let it roll off your shoulders.
