    You know that feeling you get when you are travelling and you really have to pee, the closer you get to the next town the more intense the feeling have having to pee is?

    My ramblings on this life with IBD....

    As I read through the forums, I am finding more and more people with either undiagnosed disease, or diagnosed with one form of disease at first, and then the diagnosis changes.... So I started thinking to myself, "I was diagnosed 24 years ago after 2 simple tests... was I misdiagnosed? Is it...
