So what if I'm going through a spell of crohn's and weight loss.
For the last few months, bowel been bothering me, was started
on a new medication, went into a flare, started on fluids and the
What gets to me more than the crohn's is hearing comments
from family and friends/ asking what happened to me, I use to be so full and look so nice. A neighbour whom I haven't seen in a while and think is in her late 80's said to me,
"what happened, you shouldn't be looking like me ". Another friend came by that I haven't seen in a while and was actually crying. My entire body lost weight and my face lost weight and she brought up the same thing, that my face use to be rounder, well do you know how that made me feel? Made me feel like something is really wrong with me, lol.
The worst was when I was leaving for a trip, my husband seen
me off and I was waiting in the boarding area, and a woman
sitting across from me asked if that was my son. Ouch...that hurt.
I know I lost weight and it aged me a lot, but I wish if people don't have anything nice or positive to say, they wouldn't say anything at all.
I know I need to get rid of the flare and the problem first,
but I really want to put on weight for me, I want it for me. It hurts me as well to look in a mirror. Do you think it's wrong or vain to want to look like I use to or close to it?
Please if you have CD with weight loss and it's starting to upset you, please share.
