This, believe it or not, is a question I get now and then. I feel like saying....
"I don't know....what's it like NOT living with Crohn's Disease?"
....and then look at their face with that puzzled look, like I've just asked them what the meaning of life is. But it's the same thing. I can't answer that question. I don't think there IS an answer.
So, I was trying to think of a way to describe it and this is the best I can do...
Living with Crohn's Disease is like waiting for an earthquake.
You have no idea where you'll be or when a flare will happen, but the best you can do is to be as prepared as possible.
