if anything, Crohns disease has made me stronger, I have people that don't know my daily struggles but are so opinionated about me. I didn't go to a cousins wedding, I messaged him that my health would prob keep me from being there. His response.."too bad you let your disease run your life". Now my mother thinks My husband is abusive and I'm not saying anything. and that three neighbors have brought it up to her. He is the only one who knows what I'm really dealing with everyday. I'm pretty healthy but its a lot of maintenance. I eat frequently, have a lot of gas and keep stress down. I stay away from my mother and those neighbors because they stress me out. I know whats going on but will they ever?? I have a good life and they SUCK!!!
