The craziest thing happened at work. I never tell anyone anything or
open up to people but today I was feeling bad about
going to the bathroom kinda often so at the end of the day I mentioned to the girl I work with that I have chronic GI issues and she said "So do I, I have proctitis." I couldn't believe it. I guess she used to have bad flare ups when she was in the 20s and 30s but hasn't had one in quite a while and she thinks her proctitis stopped due to having a child, hormones and pregnancy.
on the negative side, I don't share the bathroom with her. I share it with a guy. He is great and would probably be very understanding but I don't feel comfortable bringing it up to him, mostly because he is male.
