Saw my GI on Friday...he finally convinced me to apply for a handicap parking card...I know it says right on the form that "ulcerative colitis" is considered a condition that qualifies you for it,,but I had a hard time doing it. I feel funny about
it for some reason. I know there have definately been times that it would of really come in handy for reasons of joint aches and pains, but mostly for those times I'm driving and need a bathroom ASAP! I guess I can just use it for those times, but I would feel so bad if some lil old fragile lady doesn't get the closer spot because I have it. anyone else have a handicap card???
