Good FRIDAY Morning to you 🙂
Thank you all so much for your kind words on yesterday’s post. As hard as it was to realize that I could not run the race this year, I KNOW it is what I have to do. I mean I really have no other option….
Sometimes when you have a disease like Crohn’s, you have to laugh about it. It makes you feel like CRAP…literally, but you have to remind yourself to smile. It’s the only thing that keeps you going & not getting down on yourself. Some days can be really depressing, and if you keep dwelling on the negatives you won’t get very far.
So in honor of Friday, I thought I would share some things that a person living with Crohn’s has to think about on a daily basis. Of course it’s all in good fun, and I’m not making fun of the disease what so ever (it is VERY serious) but like I said…sometimes you just HAVE to laugh about it.
Even if you don’t have to go that very moment, you will still locate every single bathroom in any place that you visit. I honestly know exactly where the bathroom is in every store that I visit frequently..and if I’m in a new place I make sure to scope out where the bathroom is or I ask someone where it is…JUST in case! Gotta be ready 😉 Oh and this whole ‘bathroom ‘scoping’ could be very handy to anyone that might be with you. No need for them to hunt for a bathroom, since you already know where they all are. 🙂
Since you never know how long you might be in there…you want to be ready! Mine as well make the most of your time in there & learn something new!
People will never know. Sometimes your Crohn’s disease can come in handy 😉 Like for instance, in my office we have a lot of clients that like to bring in goodies for us..especially around the holidays. Sometimes I really just don’t feel like having a donut, a piece of cake or another cookie…so I just blame it on my stomach. 😉
(Now, please don’t misunderstand me, there are definitely things that I really CANNOT eat due to my Crohn’s disease.)
As much toilet paper that I go through, I should be their #1 investor!
Mine as well enjoy the surroundings 🙂
Ok, this might be a bit much…but guys, sometimes I am too nervous to even DRIVE in fear that I might get the urgency to need to go to the bathroom IMMEDIATELY. It is awful. I think that’s the worst part…when you are in your car with absolutely NO bathroom in site. I think the worst possible moment is when you are on a highway with NO exits for a long time. As soon as you realize that you don’t have the option to go to the bathroom if you need to, then you typically have to go right then. I swear it’s all a mind game sometimes.
Anyways, this post was totally random..but I needed a laugh 🙂 Hopefully you got one too. Do you have any fun plans for this weekend?? I was a single lady for most of this week (Craig just got back home last night) so I’m going to be enjoying my time with him (I’ve missed him like crazy!) & we have a TON of DVR-ed shows to catch up on. (I don’t watch our typical shows if he isn’t in town- I always record them so that we can watch them together. Umm…hello cheesy 😉 )
Hope you have a wonderful day! TGIF! 😀 I might just have some more donut recipes for you soon 😉 They have become my new favorite thing to bake on the weekends.
