I was Dx 3 years ago. Within my office I've told 6 people. My BOSS and my 5 best friends. I told all 6 of them I did NOT want them mentioning it to anyone else. I did not want people to know because for ONE its not their business and for TWO, I don't want people to always look at me and think of BMs!!!
This morning I had a flare so by the time I finally got to work, I felt crappy. Everyone was going to lunch later but I declined. But by the time lunch rolled around I was feeling a little better and went with everyone including my 5 best friends PLUS some other people.
I only ate a potato and because of that, someone made a comment about how I wasn't eating and then ANOTHER person who I've never mentioned I had CD to says, "Yeah, aren't you on a fairly restricted diet?" It threw me off so bad because I knew at that moment she was aware of my CD although I'd never told her. Then it made me wonder who she heard it from. Did EVERYONE at the table now know? Did my boss tell her or did one of my best friends??? It's frustrating when you specifically ask someone NOT to tell anyone else a PRIVATE piece of information to you. Why can't people keep SOME secrets? This is why I keep to myself. I feel like I can't trust anyone.
I'm wondering if anyone else around here has kept their CD a secret? Seems stupid for me to do so, now, since I now think more people know about it that I thought!!!
