I had a bad dream last night. I was at Disney World standing in line to meet Tom Selleck when I got this really strong urge to poop. (I was born in the 70's and am a lifelong member of the Tom Selleck Fan Club
, so this was a big deal to finally get to meet him!) I had to get out of line and run around frantically trying to find a bathroom.
When I finally found one, I ran into some girls that I knew in high school and had to try to be pleasant and chat with them while having to go to the bathroom really bad. When I got to the front of the line, the toilets were disgustingly dirty, and there were no doors! It was awful, and then I woke up...
If I would have had an ileostomy, it would have been great dream, because I would have been able to stay in line and meet Tom, where he would have fallen madly in love with me at first sight!!!
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at age 28. Proctocolectomy and permanent ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free and medicine-free since surgery and very thankful to be healthy again.
