Yes, I agree, women with make up on that have IBD can really fool others by not looking sick or as sick as they actually feel, that's why I always say never judge a book by it's cover when people tell me I look good I always say thanks, now if only I could feel as good as I look.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

That's funny because one of my doctors always used to tell me that I looked way too good to be as sick as I am. I just said, well that's good because if I looked as bad as I feel, I'd probably just never leave the house.
