Everybody knows how to fix my crohn’s #Fixme
#CrohnsDisease . Why is it as soon as anyone finds out that I have crohn’s they have the quick cure. Every thing from a food alergy to poorly cooked food and everything in between. They think they have the answer. I have been at this for a long time and this is something that never changes. I have gone through so many medications and so many tests. My food issues change as the years go by and my the variation in my symptoms change as each day goes by. People don’t understand how one moment I’m good and another
I’m horrible. It’s always something I’m doing wrong. When I’m at my worst people think I’m good because I’m down on weight. When I gain weight they think I’m bad. They don’t realize that weight loss and gain can come from any stage of the disease. It gets exhausting to try to explain to people what I’m going through. Feels like I have to justify my symptoms because I don’t show them on the outside. I know in most cases they mean well, but I’m not sure why my issues have to be discussed. I’m use to having to talk about it but it is exhausting and sometimes you I just want to be treated normal and for people to understand that you just have bad times. It seems like once people find out that it is the topic of the conversation everytime. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. If I don’t eat there food, I don’t want them to feel insulted. I think people feel as if I use it as excuse not to eat there food. I love almost all food. Even poorly cooked food. The longer you live with crohn’s the more you appreciate being to eat anything consistently. Chicken seems to always be the cure for some. They don’t understand that I have trouble with standard store bought chicken. “How could that be a problem, chicken is so plain.” I just need to get this off my chest to prepare myself for the coming onslaught at thanksgiving.
