Ah! I figured I probably wasn't the only one to notice that- guess I should've checked out their forum first :P
I agree though! My boyfriend's always like "Are you chatting with your other boyfriend?" (because I'm on so often, haha) and I just told him "No, I'm chatting with my colitis friends so I don't have to bug you with it!" I know he doesn't want to hear about
my bathroom problems... Or more so, I don't want to tell him about
them! It took years for me even to say the word 'colon' when describing my disease! Usually I just say "Oh I have a stomach problem".
Nowhere other than here can I comfortably talk about
the size, shape, color, and frequency of my bowel movements!!
