WOw! Thanks for all the cool post! i loved the Sandle story too!
so far only 3 friend posted their support to my comments...but that's OK! That's three more people in my life who are praying for me or can relate with me through family members diagnosed with IBD, or co-workers who have it.
I'm still cautious about the workplace. I'm very choosey who I tell. Already had a bad experience with an insenstive supervisor...and her husband has Crohns! I feel really sorry he marry that person! Not sure what type of support he gets out of it but at least I switch positions and am under someone else now :). Still gota deal with her but at least I'm not directly under her!
Being open about it, makes it even easier to accept the off-the-wall comments. It more of a "I don't care what you think" type of attitude. If your hiding something then you become more sensitive to it.
