Dang I am in a bad spot, am I in a flare? seems so.  Already swore off chocolate, now it looks like my weekly treat of Sonic has to go too.
Seriously, what if I run out of food I can eat?  about all I have left is Tyson nuggets and sandwiches, and I am so sick of sandwiches.
I sit here crying because I don't want to go to bed.  I have had diarrhea all day.  It finally shut up and if I go to sleep, I'll have to start all over in the morning.
For this year, I have been going to work 45 mins sometimes an hour early.  Whenever I could get out the door, that way I wouldn't be trapped at home when it's 9am and I'd be on time.  So, I haven't been late and I've done really well.  Then, the past 2 weeks, I was late 4 times and I have a coworker raising cane that "where is Katie? she's late again!"
I get it, I do, but what are you supposed to do when you sit down and it starts pouring out.  Then, you cannot leave the bathroom for like 2 hours because all that D keeps coming out.
I was doing pretty good most days, now it's all went to h*ll.
I HATE the colcort, cannot take mesalamine.  Colcort makes my rectum throb and the gas traps so much more in that left side all night.
I just want to scream, seems like once I had my period this month all I have done since is poop.  The dumping syndrome has really been working overtime, so much bile coming out too.
Thanks if you read this, guess I have to give in and go to bed, thank goodness I don't work mondays.

Aww Katydid, sounds like a rough spot for sure...I am on here so late for the same reason! Going to work just to sit on the pot for two hours, I can surely relate to that. It's almost humorous in a sickening way, but it will definitely make you cry sometimes. Tomorrow you should just sit in the bathtub all day and watch "Judge Judy" or something equally ridiculous or download some new music to listen to. Anything to keep your mind off the poop shooter!

I wish I could take my own advice but tomorrow I have an exam - on the anatomy of the anal sphincters, among other glorious parts of our bodies! Oh, that also makes me laugh...and want to cry!

Hang in there, chica. It's okay to vent whenever you want. Keep up those spirits as best you can.

Hi Katy, When is the last time you saw your GI doctor. I would recommend going to see your doctor and see if they can give you something for the pain when you go to the bathroom. Hope you feel better soon.

Hey Katie are your bosses aware you have Crohns disease. If not, you should explain to them whats going on, so they can understand why you are late. As for your co-worker, we all have those who think that if we ate different or did this or that different we wouldn't be sick so much. My words to them are not allowed on this board. I only wish they could experience what we live with just for one week. A day isn't long enough for them to get the picture, I think they would REALLY understand after one week. I am in remission, but my mornings are always still hell until my meds kick in. Come here and vent all you like. I also, would recommend an appt with the GI. Don't let things get out of control or it will take the meds longer to work to get you feeling better. And I think it might be time for you to start keeping a food diary to see which foods you can tolerate right now. I live on a low residue diet now, eating the bad stuff is just not worth it anymore. Good luck and hope you get feeling better soon.

God Bless,

Hey Katy,
I remember when I was in so much pain I thought just sleeping a few more minutes would make it all better. Little did I know that routine would land me in warnings at work for being late. Now I wake up 2 hours before I have to be at work (4:30am) just so I can be there on time.. Its sorta nice though, I can go to sleep at 10 and actually get about 6 sound hours of sleep, wake up get "my business" done and relax right before I have to walk out the door. Now I'm only late if something else delays me (like the stupid garage door this morning). I don't like using my disease as an excuse but it got to the point I had to tell everyone at work what was going on because if i ran to the restroom more then 3 times a day "the grinch" of the department would call my manager. Now he lets me be and understands I really can't help it sometime. I would mention your issues to your boss so you don't get in trouble.

There are moments in your life that makes you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes there little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.
