Flu bug

I hate getting sick.  It only lasted about 24-36 hours, but it zaps it right out of me.  Go figure.....could it be the Crohn's?!  Ummmm, yea!  Hell yea!!  Oh well, seems to be getting better now, though last year when I got sick from flu, I ended up in hospital from dehydration. Not fun.  This time, I had the same symptoms, but just not as severe thank goodness.

What's that!?

In the peace and quiet of my bedroom, lying half asleep, I hear it.  Faint at first, but loud enough to make me wonder, what's that!?  I shrug my shoulders and close my eyes and try and go back to sleep.  Then I hear it again, a little louder this time.  My heart starts to beat a little faster wondering, what's that!?  I'm hesitant to get up and take a look around, cuz you never know, but, what's that!?  I roll over and take a look at my wife lying next to me and I wonder, should I wake her?  No, I'm the man, I can handle it.  So I slowly and quietly get out of bed and go take a look around.  From the top of the stairs I hear it again, what's that!?  Even louder now, so I go downstairs and have a look.  I turn on all the lights and listen.......I hear it again even louder than ever!!  What the f*&@ is that!!?? 
Then realize it's just my gut talking.  Oh, the life of a Crohn's sufferer.

Ah, the trials and tribulations of a Crohn's sufferer

Giving up on things you far as food and drink go anyway.  For me, things that I LOVE that aren't good to eat anymore are ice cream, chocolate, candy (like licorice etc), chocolate, pop, pastries with cream fillings of any kind, donuts, chocolate, coffee, etc.  I CAN eat them, but I will suffer a pain greater than death if I do.  And not only from the abdominal pain but the pain I'm going to feel from wiping my butt every time I go to the bathroom, which in these cases would be about every 5-10 minutes........literally.  I might as well strap my sons potty to my waste!!
