LOL! I have a friend that's an RN and she swears I know more than she does about medical stuff related to the digestive tract.You might have Crohn's if you can get a doctorate in Gastroenterology without having to go to school.
And another from me:You might have Crohn's if your University GP seems to find your meetings mentally stimulating.....
You might have Crohn's if a number 2 sounds like a number 1.
guiltyLOL, I love these two:
And another from me:
You might have Crohn's if you're shocked to find out other people don't visually examine their poops each time they go.
OMG! I thought I was the only one who did that! My hubby makes fun of me all the time because at 2am all i have to do is reach in where my meds are, eyes still closed, shake bottles and KNOW which ones I need from the sound!! so funny!...when rummaging around in a bag of 3849032 drugs you dont even have to read the labels, you know what is what by the shake of the bottle.
like how people learn to identify bird calls? each drug has its own unique sound!! how lovely.
totally understand a year of diahrea and now im guessing another year of constipation.............oh the horrorIf.....you understand what it means to feel constipated after you just messed in your pants with diahhrea.....unfortunately this happens more than I would EVER admit, except on here!
Yes! I was watching some Grey's Anatomy today and understood 'upper GI' in one scene, and then there were these 3 siblings all at risk of stomach cancer requesting 'laparoscopic' surgery to remove their stomachs, and the brother was horrified to discover one of the possible side effects was 'dumping syndrome' and wanted out because his last 'endoscopy' was clean. I was like 'I know what all of this means!' (I haven't actually had any surgery, have just read up on it).if you actualy understand medical jargon related to digestive systems
......especially wonder if the treatment is just as bad as the disease....EVERYDAY!You go through Predinsone poisoning.
You can equate the pain to labor pains. (I have had both)
You have begged a person or two to get ahead in a bathroom line.
You can go a couple of days without eating and still manage to function.
Occasionally wonder if the treatment is just as bad as the disease.
Hilarious!.........your first reaction to a chain bookstore's closing in your town is "Ohhh, but they had the nicest bathrooms."
:rof:You keep a tube of Calmoseptine in your purse, in your bathroom, and one extra in the closet just in case.
You wear a pantiliner even when you don't have your period.
You can fart out a different hole.
You have post-traumatic-crap-your-pants-in-public disorder (PTCYPIPD), and are never going to get over it.
You take more pills than your grandma.
You're the only one at the movie theater who isn't eating popcorn.
You feel like crap, weigh next to nothing, yet people say "Oo, you look so good!"
You have to drive to the park instead of walk/ride bikes.
You have an actual toilet in the back of your minivan, and have used it several times.
You've had your ass-cheeks taped apart right before a surgery, and you couldn't wait to tell your CF friends that detail.
And a slightly different one, but still true - you might have Crohn's if you are in remission and have a completely new outlook on life. I am so thankful and appreciative for every day that I feel good now.
