I am not at all embarrassed or attempting to hide anything. I just don't think my health is anyone else's business. If people open up to me, I will open up back. I find in most cases, I usually regret volunteering more information than is necessary - especially when it relates to health.
I'm glad you're not embarrassed about
it, good for you! I'm very embarrassed/ashamed and the stress of trying to hide it often makes my symptoms worse. Stress poopin, yup, that's me. I'm working on
opening up about
it to people...which is against my nature (I'm reserved and very private). Luckily I've had good experiences when I have been strong enough to share.
