 I saw this on an artists thread, they made words up from their middle names, it was all very creative, i was having an off day and all my words evolved around this disease, so I thought I'd open it up to  my fellow crohnies.   My middle name is Jean so here goes.....................
J................ Jeans, I'm usualy wearing them.
E.................eat.   Yea right
N..................No for all the foods I daren't comsume.
 anyone else.

Darn, I can't play this one. My parents only gave a middle name to my baby brother. His middle name is Irwin - so I'm kinda glad my parents just gave me a first name. lol
