Can I join the "fun"?
You know your child has UC (or Crohns) when...
you forget that family, friends, and acquaintances may get grossed out when you talk about your child's BMs (with all the details about blood, mucous, and other stuff) or perianal absess
you always ask "so what's it look like?" as your child comes out of the bathroom
you know more about the digestive system than you ever learned in school
you need a baseline colonoscopy because of your age and your child says "don't be a scaredy cat, it's not such a big deal"
