After a lot of years not having an accident in a public place, though I've had plenty of close calls, it happened. Without warning.
I've been dealing with this disease for over forty years and the last five or so I've had a pretty quiet gut though my extraintestinal manifestations of Crohn's have been terrible. My gut is now catching up once again.
I was in a store (at least the lighting was dim and no one but my husband was very near) and without warning or any chance of controlling it, it happened. With my husband behind me I went straight out the door, threw a folded sheet I keep in my car into my seat and drove straight home. I never had a chance to think of finding a bathroom! I've been fairly terrified to go anywhere the past few weeks, but my husband talked me into going last night and thankfully it was without incident. But I was "padded" and had a change of clothes at the ready!
Yeah, stuff happens. ;+)
