many of you read mt first thread about my boyfriend having crohns, I reseved alot of very rude reactions to what I said, please let me to make what I am saying clean to everyone. I do not love my boyfriend out of pitty, I love him for the kind of man he is. He is going tho one of the hardest things I could imagin and yet he helps me with my daughter(that is not his) cleans house while i'm at work since he can't have a job due to his crohns, and he still finds time to just be romantic with me. If a man can go tho as much pain as he dose, (and i know he is in pain I see it and he tells me daily) and yet do everything he can to be a wonderful boyfriend to me and a father to my daughter, I just can't belive he would feel i would love him less. It hurt me inside that he would ever think that a illness would make me love him less. so for those of you that feel I love him out of pitty, you need to step into my shoes and think how would you feel in my place. another thing I don't know alot about crohns, all I know is what it is doing to my boyfriend. I don't coddle him he stands on his own two feet, but.....he still needs to fell he is loved. he tells my all the time he fears being alone. and I don't blanm him. I fear bing alone and my ex use to beat me up. so if anything i have said has made anyone mad. Fine I'm sorry. I would give you my blood if that would make it better, but unforchatly I can't because then i would be dead before i even got tho with a quarter of all the people i have offened. So once agian I am sorry I made so many people mad, but to those of you that understood what I ment thank you, I would aprcate any information you could give me I want to learn as much about this disease as I can.
