In one weeks time I'm seeing a gastroenterologist to try and work out what has been giving me so many digestion problems over the years. In the past week I've even tried fasting for two days to get rid of the pain. I'm discovering that my symptoms seem to fit Crohns's disease so I've been reading up on it. I came across your blog just now and read your "Crohnie Quote of the Day". It hit home so hard I had to step out of the office so no-one would notice me crying. You don't even notice that you're doing it. "How are you?" (Lying)"Good". I've been doing it for years.
I'm sorry that I made you cry, but I feel your pain. I've had Crohn's for almost 30 years now and I still lie how I'm actually feeling. It's very hard day to day to "fake" being well sometimes. Thanks for commenting. Email me anytime - Vern
You spoke a truth that resonated so deeply it elicited an emotional reaction. Don't apologise, there's nothing to be sorry for. I thank you.
you should take a look at my You Might Be Crohnie page.....for a giggle then =)
